Still here

I know the posting is way down, and not much about my stitching lately. Bear with me. I'm a little stressed and neurotic right now. Most of it stemmed from the counseling requirement, but I finally found a counselor who was willing to talk to me and listen to my concerns. I felt much better after getting off the phone with her. I hoping that things go well with her. I am not stupid enough to believe that the worst is behind us as far as the planning--I have a big ol' to-do list I made today that tells me the worst is just starting, LOL. I'm hopeful that there will be no more major hurdles--it's easier to swat at gnats than dodge a lion.

Thank you for staying with me and continuing to visit and post to my corner of the blogosphere. I appreciate it. Hopefully, I'll have some cute finishes to show soon.

Does anyone have the new JCS? I broke down and re-subscribed to it to get the Halloween issue. So many cute designs from what I've seen. Enough to make a gorgeously spooky tree. I wonder. HTB is supposed to be spray-painting birdcages for me this weekend. Do you think if I asked him to spray-paint me a tree limb from out of the swamp, he would say no, particularly if I told him it was for my Halloween ornaments? He always has been really responsive to things that wouldn't make sense to a non-stitcher, but I am not sure if that falls under stuff he gets.

I have the JCS Halloween issue. I think I was one of the last ones to get the previous issue, but this one came almost as soon as I heard mention of it on the web. It has a super collection of ornies, so I definitely think you should use your powers of persuasion with HTB.

I have the Halloween issue. It's great. I plan on doing 5 or 6 of the ornies.

Just take all the time you need to do things for the wedding. I'm sure your followers understand how hectic your life is. Cross stitching and blogging will always be here for you when you can get back to it on a regular basis.

I didn't know you had birds... What kind? I don't have the new JCS but you're the second person who's said it's a good issue.

I saw the ornaments in that issue but I don't have it yet :o( I can see me stitching quite a few of them though!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
