Found my needle and thread.....

...well, at least that is how it feels. I had to disappear from blogland while we went through our move to the new house. I cannot believe it has been over two months since I have been able to visit with any of you. And believe me...you were all missed! I did post about it on my other blog so, if you are curious, you can read about it there. Thank you very much to those who emailed me concerned that I was okay. It really made me feel good to know you were thinking of me. Out of sight in not necessarily out of mind. Thanks for being such great friends. Much better friends than Murphy...you know that menace from Murphy's law...who was keeping us company during our move.

I felt like I lost my needle and thread. Who knew I would not be able to thread a needle and get 'my fix' of much needed stitching for so long. I painted and cleaned by day, to exhausted by night to do anything else. Then my mother arrived to see our new house baring gifts. This one to be exact...the Santa Button Sampler by Homespun Elegance and the DMC thread too. Now where did I put those needles???

Boy, does it feel good to be back to stitching! I even tea dyed a small piece of 20 count Flemish farmer's linen for this little sampler.

I will be making rounds to visit you all in the coming weeks. Bet I missed lots of inspiring stitching and quilting and fun stories about life in general. I am looking forward to stopping by for tea and a chat.....
