I Promised Astrid

At StitchFest in Herndon Va this weekend I met in person Astrid of Dragon Stitches and Other Stuff. It's been so long since I posted. I promised her I would post today. We had a great time. In the project bag exchange she chose the bag my sister put in. It was made of dragon fabric. Here's a picture of the whole group.

I'm going to start catching up for the past year. I started the year doing the #stitch9challenge created by Michelle Rudy of @farmgirllovesgoats. These were my picks.

These are the first five I finished. They were completed January through April. In April we went to Ireland. That will be a separate post in the future. We also adopted two new kitties at the end of April. This is Honey. 

and this is Roxie.

Well that's all for this post. I'll post the remainder of the year next.

Thanks for stopping by.

2018 Stitching

I've added a page for my 2018 finishes. I haven't made a page for these for a few years. I'm going to try to blog more. I still come and read the blogs but I don't post as much as I used to. I think Instagram is spoiling me because all I have to do is take a picture with the phone and I can post it right then and there. I need to make the extra effort to move the photo from the phone over to the computer so I can blog about it.

2018 was a rough year for me. Our mom went to join our dad in heaven in March. August I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disk Disease and had to have two shots a month near my spine to alleviate the pain. That's how I spent my August, September, & October. Just when I thought I was over all that pain I got the kidney stone from hell two weeks later. I had to have two surgeries, one to put a stent in to push the stone back into the kidney as it was too pick to pass (13 mm!) and the other was the lithotripsy to blast it into many little pieces. That took up the first two weeks of November. So I am looking forward to a less painful and healthier 2019. My goal is to get myself healthier, try to eat better and lose some weight. Oh and do more stitching!

Happy New Year Everyone!
