How long has it been?

Since I actually made a post - it has been awhile!
I went to Houston with hubby last week and had no internet access so I couldn't post from there. When I have been at home I have either been packing or cleaning. I think most of the packing is done for now - until we actually sell the house that is. The storage building is pretty full (we might be able to shove a few more boxes in but that would be all!) and I think we have pretty much taken all we can fit into the apartment.
Since I have been packing and cleaning I haven't done much stitching but I found this finish that I don't think I've posted yet. I'm not sure of the actual finish date, but I took the picture on Jan 16.

I hate that the picture does nothing for the fabric - it is much more golden than it shows up in the picture. (it is Meadowlark from Birds of a Feather - I love that fabric and I don't think I have any more!)
The design is from Stone and Thread. I can't remember what kind of floss was used (it came with the chart) but it was one I hadn't heard of before. Not sure exactly what I am going to do with it - for now it is just hanging on the bulletin board.
Well - better get busy. The realtor will be out to take pictures today.
Have a great Monday!

Good luck with the realtor; hope you find a buyer soon.
That piece is beautiful, your stitches look so perfect. I know you'll be glad when things settle down and you can get back to life as normal!

I LOVE your finished piece! Thanks for the info -- I'll have to look for it. :)

Best wishes with the realtor.

If only things could get back to normal for you (with the moving and selling the house and all). And you could once again, after years of living in your current house, live just as it says, simply. Hope it's soon!

Well hello stranger!! I was wondering if you were ever coming back to Jacksonville! I've been thinking about you. I hope things slow down for you for a while.

Sweet finish Tina. With all the packing finished for now and the realtor listing your home maybe you'll have a moment to catch your breath. Hope you have a buyer quickly. Hugs, Linda

So, things are moving right along. I knew that they would. Lots of hard work involved, though.
Maybe you will soon be getting back to {your} way of living, and I'm looking forward to it for you.
