Back from a loooong hiatus....

Good evening, dear readers!

I know that it has been a very long time since I posted here.  Instead of boring you with details I will just say that I have missed seeing everyone and look forward to reconnecting with all of you!

Over the past few years my stitching has moved to the back-burner.  To be honest, I have not picked up my needle in quite some time (years, maybe??)  Work has taken over my life and it is time to readjust priorities.

I have been dabbling in photography - and have enjoyed the freedom that snapping pictures has afforded me.  However, I do miss my needlework!  Over the past few weeks, I have been slowly going through my stash and deciding what to keep and what to toss.  Looking over my stash has re-awakened a desire to pick up my needle.

As many of you know, I have always been drawn to the BAPs - things that take YEARS to complete!  This time around, I am going to take baby steps back into my needlework.  I have found a lovely ornament that I started years ago that I hope to finish.  It is an oldie but goodie -

Little House Needleworks
Peppermint Twist
32ct Lambswool

I love Little House Needleworks and look forward to finishing this cutie so I can have another ornament on my tree this December.

Thank you to those of you who have continued to follow my blog and send messages of encouragement!  I promise to catch up on my email soon!

Take care and keep stitching!
