A Stitch in Time*

Pretty Pictures

Time for blogging and any other sort of fun pastime has been sadly short in the past several weeks. I haven't had a chance to work on my pretty Summer Queen for awhile now. Sigh. I so hate when life gets in the way of doing the stuff we like to do, but that's how it is.

I spent 13 years at home as a Stay-at-Home Mom. My heart is still at home, even though I'm now in my tenth year at my 'grown up' job as a teacher.

What have these past several weeks brought? I'm sad to say it, but just work, work, and more work. One would think my job would get easier each year, right? Sadly more and more is put upon us, so time spent doing paperwork becomes massive. This has definitely been my most demanding year ever.

On a happy note, I was recently able to turn in paperwork this week that reflected the completion of my Master's Degree. Hurrah! It took me over two years to do it, while many of my colleagues were able to do the program in less than a year. At least it's done.

Also in the 'happy' department is time spent with our little grandson. I get to see him about once a week, as we just don't live 'down the street' but about 20 miles away. What precious times those are! This picture was taken last week while my mom was holding him. He's wearing a onesie our daughter appliqued with his first initial:

I'll end this with a sharing of a gallery of photos I compiled on Flickr. Thanks to all the people who took these gorgeous photos. Enjoy!

    Thanks for stopping by. Your cross stitch pieces are beautiful. I used to do so much counted cross stitch and needlework, but I don't do much anymore. I used to do some of the most complicated patterns and still love the pieces that I have framed in my house. If I had all the pieces I have ever stitched, they would not fit on my walls. I have given away so much needle work over the years. Now I do a lot of knitting and quilting. Have a great day! Love & blessings from NC!

    I know what you mean. It seems like I do nothing but work, work, work...I don't seem to get enough time to work on my needlepoint projects - of course all the time in the world would probably not be enough time...I have some older, retired customers that have said they think they had more time before they retired - now that they are retired, they can't seem to get anything done! We probably plan our time better when we don't have as much of it to work with...

    Congrats on finishing up your Masters, what an accomplishment. Glad to hear you were able to spend time with your grandson, what a cutie. As to work, one of my friends is a teacher and I can't believe all the extra work it requires. So many people think teachers have it easy, short days and summers off, that is soooo not the case. You all are way underappreciated for all you do.
