Where does the time go???
We were just talking about the daffodils coming up and the next thing you know Taylor and I are coloring Easter eggs.
I'm not complaining....we've had a beautiful Spring for sure and Easter is my very favorite holiday.
I think that might have something to do with the chocolate bunnies : )
Let me tell you about the new Pattern I just released and then I'll tell you what I've been up to.
Here is the Spotted Hare Pinkeep Drum & Velveteen Carrots
This was first done for Willows & Early Blooms at Country Sampler last Spring. I made just a few changes and now it's available as a Pattern for everyone.
The little Spotted Hare is so sweet....and there is also a wreath with the date 1820 and a flower basket full of lilies and tiny blue flowers stitched on 32 count linen.
The Pinkeep Drum measures about 5" high by 3 1/4" in diameter.
And check out these little velveteen carrots....they have been nicely worn and aged.
The Pattern includes all the instructions to stitch and finish the Pinkeep Drum and how to make and finish these sweet little carrots.
I just listed this sweet little Pattern on eBay and next I'll get it on my website.
If you'd like to have one just send me an email and I'll happily get it in the mail right away.
Well friends....I've been in a funk.
It really has a hold on me and I've had the hardest time shaking it.
My babies are growing up and it hit me like a ton of bricks.
Michael will be graduating from high school next month.
We've been planning his party and talking about college.
I can't wait for the party.....we're having a combined party with lots of his friends at a reception hall.
I'm so excited for him....but I know I'm going to be a hot mess.
I've known his friends since grade school and it's so fun to see them all grown up now......but unfortunately it's not going to stop me from crying and embarrassing him : )
And Taylor is graduating from Kindergarten and next year she'll be going to a big school.
I know she's ready and she'll make lots of new friends. I'll be the one crying on her first day of school.
Watching her reminds me so much of Michael.....I remember his first day at Kindergarten and First Grade....and now he's graduating.
It boggles my mind how fast it's flown by.
I think that's what upsets me more than anything.....how fast it's gone.
In the blink of an eye we'll be planning Taylor's graduation.
Geez...I'm such a baby....just reading this makes me cry.
I really want to enjoy this time so I'm pulling up my big girl panties and getting my act together.
I know stitching is going to help me so I hope to have lots of new things out for you to see.
I can't believe how long it's been since I posted last.
I'm so sorry about that.
Stitching and keeping in touch with you is going to get me back on my feet.
