Way too long!

OMG guys, it's been so long! I really didn't mean to be absent for... months. I started a new (great) job in February and for awhile it was just so busy that when I got home the last thing I wanted to do was jump on the computer and write a blog post. Or check email. Or Facebook. Or anything really. It's really calmed down since then, either I know more, or it's just not as busy, Or a combo of both, any which way I'm back for an update today at least.

I'm in the process of packing up the townhouse that my husband and I have been living in since 2007 (for him, 2009 for me) so we can move to sunny North Carolina! We are both keeping our jobs and will be work from home employees. The hubby has been since he got his new job in August, but it'll be a first for me. I'm excited and sad at the same time!! We don't have an official move in date yet (the apartment we're renting is still being built) but I'm thinking by this time next month we'll be North Carolina residents!

Anyways, you read my blog for cross stitch news! I had been so busy with work that I really haven't gotten much done. :( I did finish a couple things, and start a few others and leave some behind in the dust. You all know how it is!

Most recent first (since that's what I can remember!)

I just started my third design in Angel Stitchin's ... coffee series, Cafe Latte:


That means I also finished two, Hot Cocoa & Espresso, but I'm going to have to dig up the pictures somewhere... they are all packed now.

I also finished this little ornament from one of the Just Cross Stitch Ornament editions:


And this little lady was a freebie on Durene Jones' Facebook page in October:


I finally finished this guy too (I started back in.. 2013 I think):


I started Glendon Places' Friendship Compass (and then stopped, I have ADD ...):


I started Damask Square by Ink Circles (on 40 count, my eyes!):


And I did work on my Plum Pudding by Glendon Place, there's just no way I'll get it done for the SAL that I was hosting. I'm still going to draw for the winner though! Sorry I poofed and didn't have regular check ins.

I think there are a few more things sprinkled in but I can't track down pictures right now. :) I'll update when we move and I find them again :)

How is everyone else's year been? It's almost over, it's gone way too fast!
