Happy Memorial Day and Blug Update

I'm back and it has been a long April and May for me. Now with tax season over(I work for a CPA), college graduation, my daughter's birthday, Mother's Day, and life, I can stitch on a regular schedule again. Another of my hobbies is making greeting cards and that has came me busy in April and May. I am now back stitching on my 15 cross stitch pieces rotation and have even finished a few items..
