Life Gets in the Way

It's been over a week since I've posted anything. Life has been getting in the way lately. I hate it when that happens. LOL I ended up with over 150 blog posts that needed to be read and a mountain of email in my Yahoo groups. Needless to say, they all got deleted. So....if I missed anything important you think I should know...drop me a note to let me know, K?

I have an ornament for an exchange on ILCS that will be overdue by a few days. I've let the people involved know, so that should be alright. It will only be a few days late.

I got my floss in to finish ALQ, but I think that is going to take a backseat for a little bit. I've decided to stitch a memorial to my grandfather. November 29 will mark the one year anniversary of his passing. And the closer I get to it, the harder it is for me. I'm hoping that this will help me deal with it better. I'm doing La-D-Da's Bushel and a Peck. The saying is something that my granddad used to say to me all the time. I'm going to use Vikki Clayton linen and silk to do it. I've already placed my order and now I just have to wait. I don't think that I will get it finished by the end of November, but I take vacation the second week of December. So, if it isn't finished by then, I'll finish it during vacation.

I know what you mean about life being in the way. I struggle at times too to read all emails and keep up with blogs.
That memorial piece will be a beauty. It's lovely.

It is hard to keep up with it all - your memorial piece sounds like a great idea. Good luck with it!

I'm constantly playing catch up, what with work and kids but hey, it's nice just hanging in there... the memorial piece sounds lovely, hope you have a quieter week this week.

I so understand about life getting in the way. :) Happens to me all the time. LOL
And I understand how you feel about your granddad. My Dad passed on December 2 and Thanksgiving always is a little bit of a downer. That was his favorite holiday.
Those we love and loose are always with us in our hearts.
Take care. And let every tear you spill as you stitch your piece bring you a little closer to healing peace.

LOL, only 150 blog posts? Once I had 1000+ and usually I have around 600-800. Yikes...
