A bad month... But maybe not as bad as I thought...

First of all I want to thank everyone who left me such sweet kind and encouraging comments on my last post. I think I was just having one of those days. My daughter was sick, then I caught it. And of course cold meds always knock me for a loop. Of course I wasn't getting anything done! I was under the sleeping curse of cold meds. Things happen, but they are usually just temporary. My mother always says "This, too shall pass" but it's hard to remember that when you're going through it.
I think I was just feeling so discouraged because last month was a great, productive one, and the beginning of this one was not as great as I was hoping. 
But! Now I'm better and my daughter is better so I actually was able to get a bit of stitching done, the last ten days of the month... I even got a finish! Granted, it's just a small one, but it's a finish!! So let me share with you what I accomplished!
Here's my finish. Santa ornament #3. And here's how far I got to with the 4th one:
And I think I would have gotten a finish if I hadn't had a desperate urge to work on this:
Which I am still in love with. My goal for this one was originally to try to finish this page. Once I realized THAT wasn't going to happen, I decided to try and finish the white angels hand which I did. Plus tons of other confetti fill in here and there. 
So I was happy to see this month wasn't a total bust!
Along with my stitching I also read 8 books this month as well. And watched 3 seasons of House MD on Netflix and season 2 of Ghost Hunters. And this week I've also been doing some little crafty/baking projects with the daughter. We've been having a lot of fun and she is super excited for Halloween! 
I guess that's it for now! I hope everyone has a wonderful, fun and safe Halloween!!!

May be a little while....

I just wanted to stop in and say hi! Life has just been so busy as of late. Boy, being a stay home mom to an active three year old is hard! I can hardly get anything done. I feel like just giving up. I've given up on trying to even keep my house clean, cuz the minute I pick it all up, the toddler makes a ginormous mess again! Then it seems as if I could sit for two hours doing absolutely NOTHING but stare at the wall, and she won't utter a peep, she's perfectly happy and content. The second I think "she's fine I can get up and do something" all of a sudden she needs me! So I've just given up. We are gonna get her in a mom's day out program after the first of the year, so I may be able to get back to doing some of the things I love then. But for now I'm just taking a break from stitching, and since I won't be stitching much I won't have much to blog about. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season! And I will see you again...not sure when... But I will be back... It just may be awhile! Thank you for understanding!!! Joyful stitching to you all! I will still be looking at all my favorite blogs. I thoroughly enjoy looking at all your beautiful projects and reading about your lives.
