A update and recap of fall 10 (Part1)

Hello everyone, How was your 2nd half of 2010? When i ditched my blog in August I really ditched everything in the blogosphere, I stopped reading almost all blogs, reading message boards, participating in exchanges, being on twitter, and really slowed down my own stitching.  After some serious reflection I think this outlet fulfilled a need I had back in 05 that has since disappeared. But i cannot bring myself to shut her down. SO i thought I would post a brief update about what  happened  in my life, and part 2 will review the stitching i HAVE done in 2010. I have no idea how often i will be around in the future...continue reading to see why.

  • We went on a family vacation to a lake in VA this summer- tons of fun

  • I had a VERY hectic semester, I helped design a online class for high school on a 2 month deadline, and i took a grad school class which ended up a total disaster in the long run. (I got an A but am not sure i deserved it really)
  • I planned and executed a HUGE Halloween party, so of course there was buying and crafting and planning, and we had a modest turnout...but could of been better. (I was the Ghostess, Ian was Ashe from Army of Darkness, and A was a Witch)

  • I became pregnant -planned very carefully as usual, this baby is due June 14, 2011.  So now I know I will have to really cut back on crafts/stash, but this decision was well thought out for the past 3 years.  so currently we are purging our craft room, now the new baby room. (photos are mid purge) On the up side I am finishing a bunch of stitching, which will be the next post.

    How wonderful to see your blog pop up in my Reader just now! I'm so glad that you're doing so well. I think of you often.

    Best wishes for a happy and healthy pregnancy. That's wonderful news.

    And do we ALL have futons in our craft rooms? I have that exact model...

    Your daughter is as cute as that Mary Engelbreit witch everyone was stitching for a while. It's very happy news and a fine reason for less stitching and blogging. Congratulations and all best wishes!
