Started on August 17th, 2012. Took 102 Days.
Another one of my focus pieces for the year marked off. I was trying to explain to my husband last night. Yeah I'm excited but I'm kind of sad too. I will miss her. I've worked on her so long. But I have several other HAEDs to fill the void. She deserves to be on the wall on display. So the celebration is on!!! What a journey she has had. Now soon I will get her to my LNS and get her framed.
Saturday my hubby and I took a drive to where we are getting our cabin from this spring for the campground. It was a fantastic time and hubby and me had 4 hours of driving to talk about all the issues that have been going on. I have to take better care of myself and only worry about things I can control. I know that's easy to type but I've been trying hard and already feel a lot better. It's not worth stressing myself over every little thing. Some things we really can't control and just have to breath our way through it. I'm not a good person when I let it get me down. Who is?
Yesterday hubby had a Ham radio event so I settled in for a nice relaxing stitching day. I started the next Durene Jones Calendar piece. Here is February after the first day...
Definitely a stitching filled day indeed. It felt great. Today I'm ready to start a new week. I hope everyone reading this has a great week too. Remember to love yourself and treat yourself with the respect you deserve. Big Hugs to All!
