Update and exchanges

It's almost a month since I last posted. It had been a busy and sad month. My dad was very sick in November and passed away on the 26th of November. His death hit us very badly especially my mom. I missed my dad very much. I have been spending time with my mom so that she will not feel too sad and lonely. I guess time will heal the pain and sadness.

I have tried to pick up my stitchings again but the mood is not there. In the meantime, I have set myself some stitching goals for 2009:

1) A Quaker Christmas by ByGone Stitches

2) Flip-it Blocks by Lizzie Kate - one block per month

3) Christmas ornaments - one ornie per month

4) exchange stitchings

I hope to start stitching after the holidays. Have a couple of exhanges to update, I received my HoE Christmas ornament from Leigh D. She stitched a lovely stocking ornie by Blackbird Designs. She also sent me some note pads, chocolate and a nice card. Thank you, Leigh for a lovely exchange. I also participated in the EMS 5th Annual Ornament exchange and received this lovely ornie from Melissa McQueen. I am not sure about the origin of this design but thanks, Melissa for this ornie.

I join LHN Winter SAL and started on Peppermint Lane. Here is a picture of where I left off.

Thank you for visiting. Merry Christmas and a wonderful year ahead!

I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. My condolences. And I know how you are feeling. I just lost my Mom on Dec 6th after a long illness. Even if it is expected you are never prepared.

I'm really sorry to read of your loss. I hope you (and you mom) are finding some solace. Best wishes for a healing new year.
