Catching My Breathe




Oh my! Can anyone say exhausting?!?!?! That is what the past almost 3 weeks have been. We had the boys for a total of 18 days. That is the longest we have had them & oh my! We all know how busy ONE 19 month old can be, multiply that by 3. They left on Sat. am. We were not able to take them, like we had planned. The other grandparents had to step in & fulfill that duty, as we had obligations with our other son that afternoon. Long story, leaving it at that!!!
On the stitching front, I actually have stitched SOME every day so far this year, except for Sat. With the boys leaving, then doing operation 'put the house back in order', then going to the other obligation, there just was not time.
But......on Sunday, I finished my March LHN Sampler. Again, it is done on the same fabric as the others, using Victorian Motto Samplers flosses, for the most part. This one had a couple of the actual flosses used in it. This is finish #8 for the year and finish #6 of 15 for the new project challenge. Not too bad! WAY BEHIND LAST YEAR!!
I had a bridal shower to go to on Sunday, but I was still playing catch up around here, plus I wanted to make at least part of the gift, so I nicely told the bride to be that I would not be there.
I started her gift yesterday & hope to have it finished by this weekend, at the latest.
I have also added a picture of the floss & fabric for an upcoming project. I still need a few flosses.
I am sorry I have not been visiting blogs too much over the past 3 weeks, but I should be getting back to normal real soon. I also am sorry I haven't replied to comments from my previous posts. I usually take time to do that, but with the boys here, my computer time was very limited. Please don't stop commenting!!!!!! I love reading your comments & believe me, I read each & every one!!!!
Have a super day......thanks for hanging in there with me!!!

Your finish is cute Shari :)
I didn't have 19 month old triplets but I had 19 month old twins and a 34 month old at one time :)
Good Luck on finding some stitch time among your busy schedule!

Aww your finish is adorable Shari!
Hope you get a chance to rest and stitch soon. There is still time to join in the Easter exchange if you like. Hugs!

March is wonderful, I really do like that series. And that new project looks to be a whopper - good luck.

Enjoy a little down time for a while, you have earned it!!

the sheep are lovely

Carol said...

Woo hoo! Your walking meter is almost up to 100 miles! That's great, Shari--keep it up :)

Love your little March sheep--what is is about sheep that is so appealing, I wonder? I hope you can get a lot of rest after that long visit from the trio! Treat yourself to something special--you deserve it!

Your March piece makes me long for Spring. :-)

I seriously would have pulled my hair out having 3 19 mo olds for 18 days. We had Amberlyn over on Sunday and it wipes us out! LOL I'm so sorry you didn't get to see your son, I'm not sure what happened, but I know how I would have handled that either. You must be much more laid back than I am. I can't believe you got ANY stitching in! Great job.

Denise said...

Love these monthlies - they are LHN??? Must go search them out! I can almost see them in my stash box. Ooohh, bad things since I am shopping Thursday!

Brigitte said...

Such a pretty finish! It's really great that you still find time to stitch being so busy with obligations a lot.

Mylene said...
