Long Time Away

I know, it's been a long time since I've written, but you know how it is, life gets in the way. Don't you hate it when you get sick at the worse time? I mean there's never a "good" time; and never a time when we want to get sick, just sometimes are more convenient then others.

I caught that nasty flu several weeks ago..the one with the excruiating headache~migraine style. Ouuee have never had my head feel like that in my life! Had to make a trip to the nearest urgent care to get a shot at 2:30 am. No fun! Then after two rounds of taking strong antibiotics, I think it's finally on it's way out.
Worse yet, it made it's round through all our family. Thank goodness I don't have any little ones. It was hard enough taking care of myself.

Time for updates on most of my co-op sites. I've been working like a mad women trying to get new designs to list. Plus I have several swaps I owe along with orders. I yi yi, too much work! But I LOVE WHAT I DO so that makes it okay.

I think it's time to have another giveaway..stay tuned for what it'll be and when. You won't want to miss. Meanwhile, check out my website for some great designs. It's about time to start on fall already!

Plus I will be listing items on Etsy too. I was working on needlefelting little characters and such, while I was sick. Lemme know what you think. I'll letcha know when I have them up for sale.

Till then, I'll be sewing....

Yesterday was a sad day for us TDIPT gals. One of our own, only 46 years young, Sue Zalik, had a heart attack and died. She was one of the sisters from 2stitchin. Lynn and Sue have been designing and stitching up samplers for years.
Sue was very proud of her children, a 26 year old daughter who attends college and a 12 year old son who she was always escorting to participate in sports. She was a family woman, married to her husband for 24 years. This is indeed a sad time. We will miss you Sue, but we promise to take good care of Lynn like you would want us to do. RIP Sue
Makes you really think of your own mortality when it hits so close to home. I've had several friends pass the last 2 years, several friends and friends' children. I hug my children a little longer and tell them I love them whenever I can. We never know when our name will be called.
Be sure to show the ones you love how much you love them each and every day. It might be your time next.
