Thank you for the kind words and warm wishes. I'm waiting for the "it gets easier" part to begin, but I'm doing well and thankful for every day.
The last few weekends have felt pretty "normal." I've been visiting blogs, admiring everyone's work, and I've picked up the needle again. Yeah! Remember the little kitten ornament I started during the Olympics? Well, I completed the stitching,...
and I finished the back stitching.
I'll admit that back stitching is not my favorite part of the process, but it certainly makes a difference. I'll hold off on really "finishing" this little guy until the other kittens are stitched and ready (so who knows what decade that will be). For now, though, I'm back at it!
