Please forgive me - life has intruded and I've not posted nearly enough this past 18 months.
I had a massive lifestyle change in May 2012- leaving my husband and striking out on my own.
I did barely any stitching in 2012 -a wee bit more in 2013 - who knows what is likely to happen in 2014
Stitching, prior to my break was my crutch - to the point of obsession - as was my blogging - dropping out of the world of reality and huddling comfortably in the welcome arms of my stitching sisters (and brothers)
While I don't think I will ever return to the excessive output of 2011 - The year of the sheepies, I do miss the camaraderie and show and tell aspect of blogging. I truly felt I have friends out there, beyond the keyboard and screen, friends who have their own interesting lives.
It's nearly Christmas - and I've managed to almost catch up with my Christmas Tablecloth.
2010 - We celebrated Christmas and my Dad spent the holiday with us - so naturally, Santa symbolises that year around the table...
2011 - It was heading into prickly time - I didn't know at the time, it would be the last Christmas with the extended family - Holly seemed to be a suitable symbol for that year.... located on the edge of the cloth..
We also had lunch that year at a friend's home - there were more at the table, but I've included the family on a banner above the 2011 square
2012- After calling in to see my boys late morning on Christmas Day, I was invited to lunch with my girlfriend's family. All I need to do is to add the names and 2012 is done

Time now for me to log off again. It shouldn't be so long this time around.
Seasons Greetings to all my friends - Happy Stitching - I'll be back in 2014
