A Year and 7 months later...

I figured with it being a new year that it was time to bring this back to life a little bit.  
The last time I wrote I was still recovering from having a large kidney stone.  I thought that was the end of my troubles for a while but it wasn't.  In June of last year I went to the hospital because my blood sugar levels were creeping back up and also I was having a horrible headache..Now I get a headaches a lot so I didn't think to much of it at all..but after 3 days of nothing touching this headache I figured I might as well get it checked out to be on the safe side.  A week or so before this my Urologist had scheduled another CT because he thought I might still have a smaller stone or 2 so when I went to the hospital this time I told them about my headaches but also about the CT and so they did the scan right then.  An hour or so later the Dr came into the room and said they were flying me out of our small town hospital to a larger one it seemed that my Kidney that had the stone in it in March had died and was gangrene and was starting to leak a poison into my system so a few hours later they flew me to a hospital 3 hrs from where I live and 2 days later they removed the kidney so now I have just the one but thankfully no dialysis needed yet but I do have to be a lot more careful with my health in general.  I kept meaning to come back here but never took the time till now.  I have got quite a bit of stitching done lately with the healing of my surgery and just taking life a little bit easier and focusing on the crafts I really enjoy.  I have also gotten into diamond painting as well which relaxes my mind so much.  I would like to try and post at least monthly here so I will leave you now with a picture of where my HAED is now and a finish from last year..

My finish above is The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's Halloween Town.  It was such a fun one to do and I love most of their patterns.  I am hoping to get some finishes in 2018 as I got 0 done in 17 to many new starts lol.

Happy New Years Everyone!

Long overdue

After a long absence I am back with my stitching.  I had to put it down at the beginning of March due to some major health problems which are now better for the most part and I am able to happily stitch again.  I finished up page 1 of Andromeda earlier this month

And am well into page 2..

I have a few new starts calling out to me..not sure what to do really tho as I am still enjoying Andromeda..thinking about finishing page 2 and then maybe putting her aside for a little bit and working on something without so much purple lol.  

Hoping to be back next month with another update..

New Year and HUGE New Start

Wow..I had no idea it had been so long since I last posted.  I read blogs daily but never think to post to my own but would love to change that and get more involved with the blogging world.  So with the New Year I started a few new projects but only have pictures of one so  without further ado I present..Andromeda   

This is what she will look like when all finished..she is my first start on 18ct..The piece of fabric she is being done on is 3 ft by 6 ft..of course she wont be quite that big when finished..but not to far off from it..I am really enjoying her so far even if very slow going.

This is 3 weeks of progress on her..but have actually been on her for about 6 weeks..Will be taking another pic of her soon to show how much I have done..would like to post monthly updates on her as she grows.

I just had to post a pic of my very spoiled almost 7 year old Misty who looked too cute to ignore wrapped up in my sheets..

Hope to be back soon :)

August Update

Not a whole lot to share just a few pics really..First off my DH finished another page of his John Wayne

Then last year my kitty was given a bed from a friend that had to put his dog to sleep..she ignored it of course till the same friend got a new dog and we watched him for a day and he got in the bed so now of course the cat wants to use it too lol

Then she decided mom's lap is better than the bed so this is how we end up most nights then of course right after the pic was taken she bit me and ran,,she can be such a lap and bed kitty at times but when she has had enough she bites and runs more often than not she bites my feet which are bad to begin with from the diabetes.

Since my last blog post I started and finished the first part of The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery..A Very Merry Christmas Town

I will try and post a little more often but sometimes my health just isnt good enough for me to do anything but lay on the couch..I also got an exercise bike to try and get in better shape and that is when I really realized just how bad of shape I am in physically but I think if I slowly work at it I will get healthier in time..

Until next time...

Back again..

I had to put away my Pink Lightning for now I was just getting tired of all the dark colors but I am sure she will be coming out again soon.

 My health in the last few months has gotten some news not necessarily bad or good really..I've known I had diabetes for years now and the nerve pain that can go with it if not taken care of properly, what I didn't know but did suspect was that I have Fibromyalgia so been trying to learn how to deal with the pain that comes along with that.

I also started a new project that I will try and update on here monthly..the project I started is Save the very first and definitely not my last so will leave you with a pic of it and hope to be back soon..
