What's been going on!

**I know I haven't posted anything in a while. I've been fighting sickness for at least three weeks and just haven't felt like doing anything! We had another snow here in NC. I do love the snow but frankly, right now, I'm ready for spring! I have had some excitement over the past few weeks though! Colby and I went to see Anthony Bourdain speak in Durham. We both love his show No Reservations. We had awful seats but could still hear him just fine in all his snarkiness and hilarity. It was amazing and such a rare treat for us. We then went to Florida for Colby's family reunion. I was so glad to get out of the cold weather and into some sunshine. We had a very nice time visiting with family and we even took a day to ourselves to hit the beach. It was a little chilly but nice nonetheless just to sit in the sand. I'll post some pics later of the manatees we saw!
**I'm also trying to get together my application for the Exchange Gallery at the Visual Art Exchange. I would love to be a part of another show there and actually show more than just one piece of my work. I need to take better pictures of my pieces though and still have to do that before the deadline in two weeks! I'm such a procrastinator!
**I also finished a cross stitch a few weeks ago before I got sick. I made it for a dear friend that I thought of immediately when I saw the pattern in a cross stitch magazine I bought at a thrift store for 25 cents. It's a "vintage" magazine all the way back from 1993! My friend is a massage therapist and her motto it "Healing the world with Love." She truly believes that love that has healing powers. She's magical that way. She also just had a baby about six months ago and is going it alone. She always has a positive attitude and really flows with what the universe lays out for her. She's very special to me.

It actually took me a couple weeks on and off to finish this and there are a few mistakes but I just rolled then and made them work.

The flowers are very pretty and took the longest. There were alot of color changes. I still need to find a frame and give it to her. It's an odd size so hopefully I can find something suitable. I think it's so pretty.

I hope your lives are filled with love and happiness!
