A Quick Hello

I just wanted to pop by and say hello. I haven't been able to do much stitching lately - a close family member was just diagnosed with a very serious form of cancer, so much of my time and energy has been taken up with family issues. I did make a start on Schoolgirl Lessons by LHN; today I will be taking it to my son's soccer game, which will apparently be played despite pouring rain. I wonder how stitching with gloves on works? Guess I'll find out!

I've been trying to keep up with blogs and continue to be awed and inspired by all the beautiful work being created. Reading them has been a nice relief from sadness and stress, so I thank you all for helping me through a very difficult time. I hope to be back to regular stitching and blogging soon.
