There are 5 things in life you cannot recover: A stone...after it's thrown. A word...after it is said. An occasion...after it's missed. The time...after it's gone. A person...after they die. Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. Never regret anything that made you smile. Enjoy Life!!

Happy New Year!

I know I have been away for several months.  Between my chronic illness and the holidays I never seemed to find the time to sit and write a post.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  Other than another trip to the ER the day after Christmas for me we had an uneventful and quiet season.

I have not really stitched recently either.  I did get three ornaments finished to be exchanged at the two Christmas parties with my stitch groups.  Unfortunately I was only able to go to one of the parties as I was ill for the second.  On the upside I have one ornament finished for the 2012 Christmas season.  I plan on putting a few stitches into something today not matter what.  I have not figured out what that project will be yet.  I will let you all know what "blows my skirt up" and post pictures later of what I started.

For now I will leave you with pictures (again sorry for the bad pictures.  We really need a new camera) of the two ornaments I received at our Guild Christmas party.  The first I received from a lady I like to call my second Mom.   The second picture is from my Secret Stitcher.  I was very lucky to receive such wonderful ornaments from such talented ladies.

Here's hoping that 2012 will be a wonderful year full of health, happiness, love and kindness for all.




  2. Happy New Year, Christie! I am hoping that 2012 will be a much better year for you! I can't wait to hang out with all my peeps later this month!
    I hear you about finding time to post on the blog - add to that checking out and comment on my buddies blogs, writing e-mails and generally stay in touch. Sigh! We are off from work today, so I am trying to catch up on all my blog-reading...

    PS I gave DH some Steelers shirts this mas - he was pretty happy. Just thought that I'd let you know that he is a Steeler fan too.

  3. Lovely stitching!

    Wishing you and yours a blessed 2012!

  4. Hi Christie, I hope that you feel better soon and that 2012 will be a great year for you.
