Sorry for being awol

Sorry I've been awol for a while.  I've had a great time traveling a lot more than I've ever done starting in March when our first grandchild was born.  I've gone to visit her in CA twice already, Ohio to visit my parents with my son who was visiting from Denmark, to San Diego with DH while he was there for a conference, and I just returned from almost 3 weeks in HI visiting my sister, brother, and their families and helping my sister with some summer day care for her 7 and 11 year olds.  I've got another trip coming up soon (helping DD with day care when she goes back to work before her day care slot opens up) and maybe another with DH before my wings will be clipped for a while.

Needless to say, my stitching time has been much diminished (although I did teach my niece how to stitch) and I'm very behind on my ornament stitching.  I came home to a new model to stitch but hope to get back to ornament stitching as soon as I finish that and stay home long enough.

I've enjoyed seeing everyone's ornaments here.

Rita, you have an interesting life! No wonder you do not have time to cross stitch. Enjoy it!

Glad to have you back. Sounds like you've had a most interesting time.

Those are wonderful reasons for not getting any stitching done!

Sounds like you have been having a fabulous time and family always needs to come first. Your new model stitching sounds interesting - may I ask who it is for?

It's lovely to get a chance to enjoy life! Can't wait to see your stitching when you get a chance to show it off :o)
