LPN Graduation... Island Barbecue... and Snoopy Happy Dances ...


It's been a long while since my last post... and I am so sorry to have worried you all, my dearest friends... As you all know, I haven't been well... and there has been so much going on in my life...

I sincerely did not intend to worry you all by not posting... and I know I have not answered your emails either... and I am truly sorry... I wasn't ignoring you... and I want you to know I truly appreciate your emails and your comments here... Sometimes I tend to withdraw when things get a bit overwhelming... and I know I shouldn't, but it was all more than I could bare and I just couldn't cope, nor did I have the energy to do anything save try to make it through the days... Please know that you all have been in my thoughts and my heart even though I have not been posting here or on your blogs or answering my emails... and your kind and loving emails and comments truly helped me get through all of this... there are no words to thank you all... just know that you are all very dear and special to me and your friendship means more than I could ever say... :-)

As for my stitching... I have been plodding along a wee bit... I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have my stitching to keep me sane... or I suppose I should say... Relatively Sane... ;-) I have a couple of Snoopy Happy Dances to post... and a couple I'm saving to post next time... I'm almost finished with my Mail Art piece... the deadline was extended... which was a lifesaver for me! I really hope my partner, Roberta is going to like hers... I'm still quite a bit panicky about the finishing... hopefully, I'll get through it okay and not embarrass myself too much... ;-) I can't wait to see what Roberta's stitched for me... :-) I also have lots of piccys of my son Jamie's LPN graduation and Tropical Island Themed Barbecue... Oh, and let's not forgot the Rose Flame *hare* ... ;-) although you can't really see the *fuchsia pink* that well in the piccys I have... I'll save the piccys of my daughter's Cruise for the next post... ;-) She missed Jamie's graduation as she and her dbf were Sailing away into the sunset...

It's storming here again and I'm hoping I don't have to shut my computer down because of it... I had to earlier this evening... at this rate I'll never get finished with this post... I actually started it last night but after I got all the piccys ready for posting was too exhausted to continue... hopefully, if I don't ramble too much, I'll get this posted tonight so your minds will be a bit more at ease knowing I'm okay... :-)

I think I'll just spread my rambling out over a few posts... thus perhaps I'll get something accomplished tonight... I will be taking the Nurses finishes to the Framer's on Friday so they will be framed in time for the Pinning Ceremony in late July... I also stitched Lizzie*Kate's Bless the Graduate for Jamie... I'll post that one next time... :-) Thus without further ado... let the photo gallery begin... ;-)

maybe you can see them a wee bit... ;-)


Thank you all again, my dearest friends for continuing to visit my blog... your thoughtful and loving wishes and comments are ever rays of sunshine filtering through the clouds...



Blessings and Love in Stitches...


I am thankful for precious moments... my children and dear friends... my stitching... and love eternal...

Yea your back! I'm so glad to see you posting again. I'm sorry things have been so rough lately, hopefully things will go better in the future and life settles down and you feel better. The graduation pictures were great, looks like they had a wonderful time at the Island barbecue themed party too, what a fun idea.

The two healing hands pieces turned out lovely, can't wait to see how you get them framed. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you've been up to. However, be sure and not push yourself to hard to fast. {{hugs}}

Carto said...

Oh Lizzy, our Faery Princess! I'm so glad to hear that you're ok, but sorry to hear you've been having a difficult time of it. I can relate to how you feel when you can't cope with things. Like you, sometimes it is not that I don't want to know anybody or not post, but I know the feelings of being overwhelmed all too well. And I looove the hair! Bright Blessings to you my friend! xxx

Karen said...

It's so good to see you posting. I can completely understand why you withdraw when you're feeling stressed. I do exactly the same thing. Love the "Nurses" pieces, and the party looks like it was wonderful.

Oh, and your hair ROCKS! Love it.

Juls said...

Happy Fairy Day!!!! I love that you are back and wish only good things for you, my dear friend! I understand the need to withdraw and figure things out! Sometimes its the only thing to do.

Ps I found a working link to Fairy Celebration 1 and if it doesn't work just e-mail me as I have it stored and can snail mail it to you...here it is:

The Silver Thistle said...

Lizzy, my friend. I'm so sorry to have made you worry. It looks like you've had enough of your own to worry about.

I can totally relate to you when you say you retreat when things get too stressy. I do exactly the same thing.......obviously, lol.

I'm so glad to be back though, and happy to see you here too. I hope you'll feel up to posting again soon so we can catch up a bit.

Really excited to 'see' you in the pics, and your lovely children. I'm loving your hair colour. It's wild!

Great stitchy pics too. You've been busy :D
