A new start

Almost three years since I have posted - where does the time go?  I have wanted to post recently, but held back...what if I can't find the time to post?  What do I really have to share?  

I started this blog to share my love of stitching and meet others who were just as obsessed. Stitching was my escape, I could pick up my needle and thread, turn on a good movie, and forget the craziness around me.   Today, I still love to stitch, but I have a very full, happy life, and finding time to stitch is not always easy.  

In the past three years, I have changed positions at the university twice, finished my master's degree, talked about starting my doctorate, adopted a puppy and two kittens, purchased a home, watched hundreds of episodes on Netflix, stitched a little, bought lots of new stash, had my first stay in the hospital, learned to mow a lawn, bought a weed eater, but have yet to unpack it, made new friends and said goodbye to others, travelled, read some great books, acquired a taste for sushi, and been blessed beyond measure!  

I look forward to catching up with everyone, being motivated to stitch more, and meeting new people!

Cari, it's wonderful to see a post from you! Wow, a lot has happened in your life. Good things too! You'll have to share pictures of your fur babies sometime. It's good to hear you're doing well. The stitching will always be there for you when you find the time.

Life does have a way of moving quicker than we want it to! Congratulations on finishing your masters. I would say your time away from blogging was deserved, and needed.
I can't wait to see what you are working on.

I was wondering if you finished the toy store by Patricia Andrle? I was looking at her patterns and stumbled across your blog - sorry to see you aren't posting any longer!
