Thoughts, 18 Hours Later....

I want to thank all of you who took the time to make such uplifting and heartfelt comments on my last post. I've received emails and phone calls from dear friends - all of which I cherish. I was touched by all the people who shared some of what they have gone through - and some still going through - I know I'm not alone. And, more importantly, I hope you all know YOU aren't, either. I'm a note or a phone call away.



 My outlook is better and my "New Do" is GREAT!! I love, love it. DH didn't have any idea I was going to get my hair cut and styled yesterday. When I walked through the door he was surprised, but I could tell he approved of the new look. It's not drastic, but it's classic and elegant. I can still pull it back in a ponytail if I want to, or wear it down.

Stocking update: After 18 hours of stitching, here's what I've accomplished:


Almost all of her red robe is completed. I also received the few thread colors I had to order...and now I'm thinking I may need more metallic threads, but I'll make that decision after I've stitched in a bit more color.
