I'm Back After A Year

I just had to take a time out with all the problems I was having, emotionally and physically. My stitching was suffering, and I could barely see because of fastly growing cataracts, rearing their ugly heads at an early age, mostly because of my prednisone usage. The posts you see prior to this one are a year old. That's when I gave it up.

I just had my 2nd cataract removed January 29th, so it's time, now that I'm seeing much better already, to get back into stitching and blogging. It had become a chore to do anything, and I couldn't even drive safely.

I'm going to be spending my spare time in the next few days getting pictures taken to make my posts here more interesting. It's really going to nice to be able to catch up with all my friends have been doing. I see that Blogger has many new optional new features that I will be playing with, and I'm sure there will be things from my older blogging days that I'll be deleting. It's like starting all over.

During this year, I never quit buying stash, which, at my age, is a crime. I'm a stash slut, but I no longer care. I'll be adding my accumulated stash to these posts. That, however, has come to a grinding halt with the economy as it is. Our income depends on the stock market, and we've had to cut back quite a bit. I'll just have to be satisfied with what I've collected, and no, I won't even be pimped out for stash. That took a lot of thought to be so strong, but at my age, it's not exactly hard to say no.

Have a stitchy weekend to those of you I love, while I do some stitching, some taking pix. and studying the new features here on Blogger.

It's good to see you posting again! I've taken a bit of time off as well... for no good reason.
