I am still alive

Contrary to what you might believe cause I've been so quiet lately I am in fact alive.
I apologize that I have been away so much. Just getting my life back in order and been quite busy.
And have been video gaming a bit more this past week or two just cause it's a bit easier than stitching when I don't feel great.
However I have gotten some stitches into a few projects. Including pirate. Here is his progress so far:

I do have some stitchy days coming up though. One next Saturday (12th) at my place with a few new stitching friends. I soo can't wait! Need to get that dragon page finished before the end of the month!
And then another at the end of July (a 12-hour) at my LNS.
I also have a ton of stuff to pick-up at my LNS. But because it SNOWED, yep snow at the end of May, this past weekend I didn't get out there. But maybe next weekend I will.

Other than that, just getting life back in order a bit. Working on feeling like something other than crap and waiting for news on test results from the Dr. (also have a procedure on June 18th, so we'll see what that brings up for results as well).

That is pretty much all. Sorry not too exciting here today.
But hey, if I tell you... GIVEAWAY. Coming up soon!!! Soon, I promise. No more claiming I will have one and not doing it. This week for sure I will post one.

Thank you for visiting even though I have not been around much. I have been trying to comment on blogs, but it is time consuming and tough it seems these days. But I love reading them and will try to do better.

Hey, at least it's a start! ;o)

Snow???? Ack! Haven't seen or heard of the white stuff for months now. LOL!

Glad to hear you are okay just busy. Good Luck getting back in the swing of things. Your Pirate WIP looks great so far.

Mel, glad to hear that I'm not the only one not posting as regularly as in the past.

If this crazy weather continues, maybe you should add quilting to your list of things to create!

Thanks for stopping by!

Nice progress on your pirate. Ugh... SNOW!?! I do hope you feel better soon.

If you need a pick-me-up, just go back to my blog and drool a bit more, lol.

Nice progress on the pirate! I think I will join you (kind-off) in stitching on Saturday. It will be after my exams and before the next course (corporate taxation). The whole weekend I can do nothing else but stitching!

Karen said...

Yuck! SNOW! What a horrible 4-letter "S" word to have to say this time of year. I would get so depressed if I looked out my window in the morning and saw SNOW!

Even a small start counts as a start ;). You're pirate is looking good!

I hope you feel better soon. It sounds like it has been an ongoing thing for you. Hopefully your doctor can get you some answers soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching.

Glad you're back stitching. Hope the snow didn't stay long---doesn't it know it's nearly Summer?

Keep well.

Nice start! Hope your health continues to improve and you get more answers. I know how the catching up can be....I still have over 126 to read!
