Resurfaced !!

Hello my friends !! I know I have been gone for almost a year. Time goes by fast and things around here have been very hectic . As most of you know my husband has quite a few health issues and they have not improved. This has been a year of doctors, hospitals and a lot of worry. His heart continues to get weaker but he is a tough old bird and continues to fight the fight. So life is usually a day by day thing. I know I haven't been here but I still think of all of you often. For those of you that know me from Facebook and have posted comments, I thank you. The support means a great deal.

As far as stitching, it has been slow and sporadic. But I do what I can. I did manage to make deadline on several exchanges and RR !!  So I guess I am not totally out of things.
Here is my offering to my partner for the Easter exchange and the gift I received.

This my offering to my partner, the Hardanger chart was a freebie from the web quite a while ago and the card is a freebie from Just Cross Stitch mag


This is the Easter egg and the card that I received from my partner, I love it !! The egg is a chart from The Cross Eyed Cricket.

I was also in a Spring exchange, both of these exchanges are through Needlecraft Haven, a great group.


This is the tote bag and goodies that I made and sent to my partner. The basket is a chart from Lizzie Kate.


Here is the lovely pillow I received from my partner. Isn't it cute !!

I am also in a Welcome Round Robin through the same group. Here is the design I chose for mine. It is an old chart from Debra Designs, I don 't think it is even in print any longer, but I love the colors.


This is after two people stitched on it. Doesn't it look wonderful !!

Well you have been patient with this long post , so I will stop for now and try not to be gone for so long. Take care my friends and have a wonderful day !!
