Thanks, everyone, for your warm thoughts. I've always been a "Web-baby" - heck, I met my husband via blogging - but it was so nice to be reminded that there are, in fact, REAL people behind all those keyboards and web postings.
DH and I are doing fine, all things considered. Take each day as it comes, right? That has always been our view of things, really.
I must confess to engaging in a bit of "retail therapy," though...I ordered a few things from ABC Stitch's clearance pages, and I'm considering an order over at Stitching Bits and Bobs, too. can't beat Bobbie's "25% off everything" sales! I know I might have to wait a bit to GET the order, but that is fine. The arrival of happy mail is always welcome, whenever it gets here.
I've been stitching right along on a few projects - here is the latest progress on my "Worst Enemy" dragon. I had the urge to count down and start the lettering over the weekend.
This just makes me grin. When it is finished, I think I'll have it framed and put it on my desk at work.
I've also finished the sheep on the Wee Shepherd piece that will be a birth announcement for my friend's son, but I don't have a picture yet.
