Hello Again

Time has gone quickly. I can't believe it's more than 6 months since my last post.  Life had been hectic, so busy and stressed out with work it's not funny anymore. 

A few weeks ago, while cleaning my closet, I came across some unopened cross stitch kits that my sister have bought for me maybe a year or two ago and thought why not start on one of those to get my stitching mojo back.  Sounds familiar?...LOL!  So I started this one from Janlynn, called "Joy In The Journey":

And here's my progress so far:

After a long day at work, cross stitching before going to bed really relaxes me.  Reminds me just how much I love this hobby.

This is all for now.  I hope some of you are still there, LOL!  Oh, how I miss the stitching community.  Hugs to everyone :-)

Hello lovely to see you, and I do miss you lots:)
Great start on your Janlyn piece, it is very pretty.
I am sorry to hear that work is even more stressed than before,that is not good:(
Hope your stitching continues to help give you a calm time in what sounds like a very, very hectic schedule.
I will continue to look out for your posts however long you are away.
Take care xx

Well, I just want to say that I love cross stitching. I'm from Chile, and the only store that I know is DMC in Megamall.

Now, reading this blog... wow!! I mean, thank you Toni!! You have been very helpful! :-)

I buy patterns from artecy cross stiching (an online store). Now, when I finish the project I'm working on right now, I'll search on the stores you recommend.

(BTW, I saw your crochet works, and I wonder... have you consider teaching??? :-)
