Well I have been stitching Middle Earf, but due to schoolwork and... other things (see title of post) I don't have enough done to merit a photo and a post. But that's alright because I will... eventually! I've also been doing a bit of secret stitching for Handsome Helpful Fiancé which I can't show until it's done but I'm getting close! I have also, finally, gotten the hang of knitting lace. I realized that my issue was not with knitting itself but with the fact that I was trying things that were too advanced for a beginner such as myself. But I've figured that out, found a gorgeous lace scarf pattern, and have been knitting away - photos when I'm done! I do absolutely love it, though!

On top of all that I've started playing Skyrim. Those of you who play Skyrim know how dangerous that is. But it's also amazing!

And on top of all THAT I've been going through a huge transitional time - mentally. Lots of thinking. Lots of discovering. Dreams and plans of traveling. Things like that. So, unfortunately, no stitching pics right now, but I promise they will come and you will love them!

Hugs and happy stitching!

Sickness, Stitching, and Wedding Snafus

It has been about two weeks and in that time several things have happened. I'll start with the stitching. Middle Earf is still going strong and here's the proof.



It's kind of fun to watch it fill in bit by bit. I have to say that my stitchy bug had been gone for a while, but I think it's finally coming back! All I want to do is stitch these days, so I have a feeling I'll have a page finish soon.

Regarding the sickness, last Monday night I went to bed and at about midnight I got violently ill. All night. For a week. It was awful. But I'm finally eating real food again and I don't feel like I'm going to throw up the moment I move. I can even sleep on my side and I don't physically feel the pressure on my abdomen as excruciating pain. So yay! Progress! Handsome Helpful Fiancé was wonderful, though. He kept making me tea and bringing me water and crackers (which didn't exactly stay down) and tucking me in like a little burrito. Hero saved the day!

And the last bit of news is that there was a little snafu with my wedding dress. I ordered it in early May (maybe May 7th?) and was told it wouldn't be ready until November-February due to the holidays, turnaround time, and the fact that each dress is made to order. Fine. No problem. My wedding isn't until October 2014 so I had absolutely no problem with this. Well... it turns out the designer read my wedding date wrong and decided to rush the order on his own thinking it was October 2013. I checked the receipt and the receipt was correct. So one thing led to another and my dress is now ready. Which means I need to get all my undergarments etc. and plan a trip to Dallas. Honestly, if this is the worst thing that goes "wrong" then I'll take it. Seriously.

 And with that, I'm gonna go stitch while listening to lecture. Yay! Happy stitching everyone!
