Back To Business

Thank you everyone for your prayers and concerns recently as I battled a multitude of health issues. It seems as though I have finally turned the corner and getting back to myself. I feel sooooo much better. I started to turn the corner only about 2 days so I haven't worked on too much in the way of crafts. All I have wanted to do was sleep and sit on the couch and do nothing or work. So, while at work yesterday I pulled out a cross stitch sampler I have been working on and off of for awhile now. I still have a bit to do, but it felt wonderful to work on something. Today I need to clean and get things organized since I have been down so long. The sciatica is responding to the anti inflammatory and I can now go up and down steps virtually pain free so now I can get busy!!!!

Since I haven't done anything much I thought I'd share my sampler progress... This is a pattern I found at a thrift store that was originally a kit. It was too good to pass up.

Lovin the sampler! I have a heap of patterns from a wonderful garage sale I found. Planning to spend some long winter hours by the fire, stitching up a storm.
