A Little Spring

This is my cherry blossom tree.  If you like it it's available at Valley Artisans Market.  I'm sharing it to remind myself it's spring.  It doesn't feel much like spring in this neck of the woods.  Doesn't feel much like spring in my heart either.  Stormy, dark and gloomy, only for the moment though.  Been dealing with some stuff and just a wee bit sad.  Haven't embroidered much lately, always feel blue when I'm not embroidering.  Must be that idle hands are the devils workshop thing.

My wonderful son turned 26 recently.  He's a great man, very kind and warm and responsible.  I'm very proud of him, after all he is my greatest creation.  I worked myself into a tizzy looking through an old photo album.  So many happy times,  it's pretty clear I adored him even then.  It all goes by so fast.  A completely different life.

The world is moving at breakneck speed even faster since Trump became our president.  Not getting too political but maybe god is feeling cold and stormy too?  Maybe it's time to be inspired and start embroidering and writing a blog post once in a while.  I think this is it for the moment.  Keep on stitching.

Hi There!

Hi All!  This is the Pond.  It's a piece I made for my show at Valley Artisans Market back in February.  It was very exciting. It's been a really long time since I've written anything but I went down the rabbit hole of my past and read a few posts that I wrote when I wrote too much.  So here I am.  I'm still an artist and still a member of Valley Artisans Market and I'm still a server.  I work at my local Cracker Barrel and I love it.  My son lives within walking distance and he has made me a very proud mother.  He is handsome, charming, responsible and has a good job.

I'm pretty well used to being alone.  I still wonder if I'm going to meet Prince Charming but happy enough to live life without him.  I've got great friends and my trusty dog and I'm so happy spring has sprung.  I'm still trying to find my way, keeping stitching and working and sane enough to appreciate how much my life has changed.

I'm gonna try and revive my blog and share my embroidery and see what happens.  It's late and I'm tired so it was just a catch up post.  Be happy and keep stitching!  P.S.  The Pond is still available at Valley Artisans Market.
