The World Is Back On Its Axis...Temporarily

Going back to school has sure put a stop to a lot of things. :) It has been a pretty drastic change for me. For four VERY LONG months, everything I enjoy took a backseat to school. I guess it was worth it, as it resulted in four A's. For my sanity's sake though, I need to figure out how to keep the things I enjoy in my life, and do what I need to for school. There must be a way? As much as I hate schedules, I'm hoping that maybe that is the secret to having it all. Delusional probably. :)

I've been on break since the 15th of December and I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed it!!! My son and I took a quick trip to North Carolina to visit my daughter, future son-in-law and my grandkitty (their demon cat), Kahlua.

She really is a sweet little cat. :)

After a whirlwind Christmas, I was able to settle down and do what I've been waiting to do for a long time. :) Stitch!

Hannah Cummins by With My Needle - ignore the fuzz and cat hair. :)

Hopefully, I can finish this before I go back to school on the 15th. I've enjoyed the instant gratification of some smaller finishes too.

Good Tidings to You by The Sampler Girl

August Word Play by With Thy Needle and Thread. I love the little garden girl!

Having no time to stitch hasn't kept me form ordering some new things. :) The Country Sampler always sends your order so nicely packaged.


I couldn't wait to order Christmas at Hollyberry Farm!

Another thing I have really missed - READING!

I finished A Reliable Wife and am currently reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

My world really has seemed to be back on its axis for the last few weeks. I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs once again and really am going to try and figure out how to maintain this once I go back to school. I've missed my old life terribly! :)

I really appreciate you taking the time to visit and hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend!
