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!
