Is Christmas Really Here?

I am just checking in for a quick update of what has been going on in my little corner of the world.
I found this little Christmas picture that reminds me of my best friend Gump that I lost a little over 2 years ago. I am always sad this time of year missing him, he loved Christmas so much.
He always had so many packages under the tree and he knew just which ones were his.
He always opened his own gifts and it was so much fun watching him enjoy them.

About a month ago, I quit my job. There was a lot of conflict going on and circumstances were beyond anything I could cope with. I worked there for 9 years. I was semi-retired and only working 28 hours a week to keep my insurance benefits. I finally bit the bullet and said I don't need this stress and quit. So for now I am staying home. I know that I am feeling a lot better although I do miss the gals I worked with.

I have been busy working on my website The Stitcher's Abbey which has been sitting idle for several years. There is also a link on my sidebar. For now I am listing things from my stash that I have collected over the years. Most are things that at one time I thought I might stitch but now don't interest me anymore.  A lot of them are things that I purchased to sell on Ebay and my other website that I no longer have. Some of you might remember Millenium Stitchery. I am hoping to get more done and listed but it is a slow progress as I am doing everything myself.

I haven't done much stitching. I did finish This Joy Love Peace christmas tree by JBW. I have been stitching on Country Cottage Needleworks-Snowflake Serenade. I was going to take a pic but it really needs to be ironed first. I still have my LHN ornaments waiting to be finished but I just don't feel like tackling them. I don't know why. I keep saying I will do them tomorrow but tomorrow never comes.

 I have been taking some time out to organize my craft room. I have been winding floss on bobbins, I am getting tired of searching for floss. I think I only have a couple hundred to go. lol. Then I need to tackle my fabrics. I will never purchase fabric again without labeling it. 
Then on to my patterns and my WIP's and my UFO's. Who knows what I might find. I need to find what I want to keep and what I want to sell.

Your little pillow is darling, Bonnie--the colors are so fun!

I'll bet you do miss your co-workers, but it sounds like you made the right decision about leaving your job. Good luck with everything :)

Your little pillow is so pretty, I also like JBW designs very much.

Sorry to hear about your job, but for sure you thought a lot about it and made the right decision. At least from now you can spend more time stitching :)

I wish you a Merry Christmas,

Good decision about quitting your job. Life is too short to work with people who have hidden agendas. I did the same thing about 10 years ago. Best thing I ever did. Since moved on and working with a very supportive group of people now.
Hopefully your little 4 legged friend enjoys his Christmas in heaven
