Wow! My followers have almost doubled in the past two weeks thanks to the blog party! I say welcome to all of the new faces and thank you for liking me enough to follow me :) In the next few days I will visit everyone's blog and see what you all do for your hobbies!

The past two weeks I have been out of town house and dog sitting for my aunt. When there I don't have access to a great internet connection unless I hook up to her cord, so most of the time I don't bother and I enjoy the brief pause from social media, which is a nice breather. Recently I have also been diagnosed with Fibromylagia, which explains my frequent exhaustion and mind fogginess along with a bunch of other symptoms I have been experiencing over the years. It is nice to finally have a diagnoses but everything just seems to be elevated lately and it makes it tough to complete every day activities such as chores, everyday routines and replying to everyone's posts. I am not ignoring you all, I just find it hard to communicate my words properly so please bare with me over the next few weeks as I try and start feeling somewhat normal again.

Ok onto my latest project....

Mermaids of the Deep Blue by Mirabillia. I am in LOVE with this pattern. I can't believe how quick of a stitch it actually is when you sit down and do it. The colors are amazing in it and every time I pick it up I fall in love with it all over again. Today I managed to get the skin of the second mermaid started and her hair. Hopefully tomorrow I can get it almost done and ready for a soak in the water.

On Monday I start school for the first time in almost two years. I am pretty excited for it, but that means not a lot of time left for stitching. That's ok since it means I am finally getting my life back on track, but it also means not a lot of creative time will be had except for (if I am lucky) on weekends. The plan is to pack a small cross stitch pattern in my purse for those moments that I have nothing to do, so I can do little bits here and there. I haven't decided what kit I am going to take yet. Possibly either Ivy by Nora Corbett or a Stargazer Lilly I want to do on some fabric I dyed myself.

Again thank you for the new followers! I am going to go look at some blogs now :)
