Stitching update

I seriously cannot believe it's been since February of last year since I touched Maleficent. I left off at the third row finish here:

I started back on her Friday night and worked on her most all weekend. I was kind of proud of myself because I finished almost half a page in less than three days, but it doesn't look like much:

I'm going to continue on with her this week and hopefully will have more to show by next weekend. For some reason, the dithering isn't bothering me as much as it used to...at least not yet.

When it comes to everything else, time is passing very slowly and super-fast at the same time. I haven't had a payday without a house payment yet, so it doesn't feel like nothing's changed on that front and no decision has been made on my job title either. But the possibility of an available building lot that Matt might go ahead and buy and sit on until I'm ready was discussed last week and I spent a lot of time tinkering with my perfect floor plan and scouring the internet for design ideas.

Monday is Amber's 40th B-day! I can't believe my baby sister is 40 years old! How does that happen so fast? Seems like only yesterday my parents brought that little bundle of joy into the house and I spent several years trying my damnedest to torture her! Good thing she forgave me (eventually) because I don't know what I'd do without her now!

I tortured my little sister too and am not sure why she even talks to me but we are the best of friends now. Little sisters are the best. Love seeing Maleficent back out!!
