Still around - just not stitching much these days!

I had no idea its been 4 months since my last post!  We had a busy summer and with my ever growing belly, I found it harder and harder to sit and cross stitch.  I seem to recall that most summers I tend to put away the projects as there are lots of other things on the go, but by the time fall rolls around, I am usually back in the swing of stitching.

Not this fall.

Some of you may recall that I was expecting my 3rd child.  Well, he arrived on September 16, 2013 and I've had my hands full, figuratively and literally speaking.  I barely get a few minutes to check my email let alone a few hours to stitch.  With the older two kids needing just as much attention as ever, precious "me" time is scarce, to say the least.  If there is any time for myself, I am usually found taking a shower, having a coffee, or more often, trying to catch a few zzz's.

Life is great though, don't get me wrong. My new son is now a month old, he's gorgeous and healthy and nursing like a champ.  I am recovering well from surgery and hoping to get back into running in the next few weeks.  Once life and our new routine settles in for the winter, I plan on picking up that needle and thread and getting back to work. 

Until then ... happy stitching!
