If you read my previous posts you know that I changed positions within the same company. I am a pharmacist for Stop and Shop-a grocery chain. My previous position was per diem and it included lots of travel, sometimes more than an hour each way. It was taking a toll since my days were usually 12 hours plus a commute. The benefit was that I could choose the days I worked and when hubby travelled I didn't work. That made it easy as far as managing the boys.
My new position is local but I work more days. I thought I would have all this extra time to do things but the joke is on me. It's more stressful than ever and working 5 days a week leaves little time to catch up. What used to be my stitchy days are now loaded with appointments and chores. An adjustment for sure.
I have done some stitching but not as much as I would like. And forget about finishing, that has taken a backseat to everything else that needs to be done. I finished Year of Hawk Run- Feb and March blocks, I did 2 models for The Drawn Thread which I can't share yet and two tiny pieces--- a LK kit called a Little Grey Hare and Scarlett House---stoneware Street. Here are the pics

Hard to believe we are in the second month of the new year. I have been finding little bits of time to stitch but can't seem to focus on any one thing. I am grateful to be back to the Year of Hawk Run so I can focus on one thing. Here is a picture walk of what I have been working on since my last post.

I started a SAL with my friend Ellen on January 1st. We are doing a block a month on CHS Year of HRH. I am stitching it on 40ct Lakeside linen Sand Dune with NPI silk. I finished block 1 and now it's back to model stitching and a pre-stitch for an upcoming class.
We had lots of snow yesterday so today will be clean up so we can start the work week tomorrow. Oh what fun! Quite honestly, I HATE snow and cold weather. Looks real pretty from inside when you can be snuggled up but just plain yuck. If I could move somewhere warm that didn't have large insects and reptiles I would definitely consider it but I hate those worse than I hate winter.

So hard to believe we are starting a new year. 2016 has been a year of change for me. I started a get fit program for myself which required more time working out and less time focusing on sedentary hobbies. I have a goal of 50lbs of weight loss and so far have dropped 32lbs.
I changed my job before Thanksgiving making for less time commuting and a better balance. I am now back to fitting in some Stitching time and feeling a better balance.
My stitching goals are to enjoy the process. Love what I am working on when I get to work on it. I am continuing my model stitching. I started Year at Hawk Run Hallow on New Year's Eve and hope to work on some of the many class pieces I have started.
I hope to do a regular bog post and share what's happening in my world.
Happy New Year and Happy Stitching everyone.
