It has been a rough few past weeks and stitching has come in handy alot of the times. I just haven't felt like posting a blog, or really being social or whatever. I can put on a happy face pretty good. I am sure that everyone has felt the loss of a family member-- whether human or pet, loss of a good friend, loss of a job, loss of a home or Country, loss of ????? Well, the last few weeks I know several folks feeling a loss in their lives. And you can fill in your own blank on which loss it has been, but is has been tough for all of us. My thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone of them.
How many of you have dealt with a rotten person that rips you a new one for NO real good reason? I read a few weeks ago that a poor woman received a rotten email about her own blog. How dare they? Lately I think they exist in great numbers--and it keeps growing. Because you have stress, doesn't mean it should go past your venting buddy. Get over it, and get over it quickly. I am so tired of it all already. I have come into contact with my fare share of rotten (today being one of those rotten morons--who thinks he is all that and a big bag of tricks, among others), and I know I could be rotten, we all can be sometimes, but I have been re-evaluating life lately, and feeling such said loss, there is a lot other things I have new perspective on. Stress is everywhere. Some stress can be avoided but believe me, it isn't easy, and there is good and there is bad, but life I feel is WAY to short. Live in peace with others, stop being so rotten, be more caring of your neighbor!!!! ---- Life is WAY to short to get all my stash complete :) AND not much longer to EAT A HOSTESS TWINKIE!!!! LOL
Like I said earlier, I have had some time to stitch, and making some progress on Dutch Beauty. The color arrangement is just gorgeous, and it is so worth the time and effort to make it all flow smoothly.
I also joined a SAL with 5 of the nicest ladies you could find; started by Nicola of Stitching by a Cornish Sea Shore. The SDW German Band sampler. You have seen fantastic progress by these ladies already, and I am bringing up the rear. Never the less, I will get my progress pics going shortly. I have actually started the horse :) It is a gorgeous project, and at this point have converted the colors but yet found myself last night and this morning making a few other adjustments. This is what I love about stitching. Making it your own :) After I get a bit more stitched on SDW, I will share pics too.
Until next time. Make it a point to Be nice to everyone :)
