Where has all the time gone!!!

Well. Look who decided to drop in and post on her blog! Thank you to the kind friend who sent an "are you still ok?" email this past week :-). It has indeed spurred me on to update. I can't tell you how out of the loop I feel at this point, I haven't been involved in any of the online tatting communities in the better part of a year, and I am even taking a year off Shuttlebirds. I am still tatting, and plan to do the Farmers Market again this year. I haven't designed anything new in quite awhile though. I don't really have time to just sit and doodle with thread like I used to. We have started homeschooling this year, and that takes a serious chunk of time out of our day. I really love the time I get to spend with our girls, and I wouldn't have it any other way. If I could wave a magic wand and make myself more organized in other areas, I'd be thrilled. As is, I take it one day at a time. It is definitely the priority around here, so some things had to be shuffled to the side... this blog, even my band for the time being have fallen to the wayside for the time being. Dr. Vonthreadmore doesn't speak to me anymore. She says I don't deserve her. I hope to be back in the dye studio this summer when school lets out for us, I actually need to do some thread for myself soon. Until next time, Happy tatting! I can't promise regular updates, I have many projects that take priority. Such as getting the Etsy shop back in order as well. I know this was just another quick update, and I do miss the tatting community as a whole. Life comes in seasons! Best wishes! Krystle

So, so good to at least see a post from you, Krystle. I've been using your Larks Head Picot join almost exclusively and am very thankful for your instructions. It's easy and improves the look of items tatted with two or more colors. I, too, will miss Shuttlebirds this year. Your priority seems so right on. Those girls are precious gifts and worth it all.

I figured you were pretty busy with home schooling. I'm sure it's a lot of work, but well worth the effort. It's good to read a post from you!

Gads! T'is thee!!

You know, I actually checked your Facebook page this a.m., and I NEVER go there, but I was wondering how you were. And here you are.

Glad all is okay and you will return. : ))

Family is so important.
I do catch your occasional quips on FB so I know that things are going reasonably well.
Nice to see you blogging as well.
Have fun at the Farmers Market this year. and will be interested to see what the good DR stirs up this summer.

Hi Krystle,

Ha, here I wander over here too, thinking "wonder what she's up to these days" - so I decided to follow this thought - come see if you need praying up in any area. Ah - but you are a GOOD mother and Dr. Vonthreadmore will be your companion in another season of your life, allocated there as she shoule be. God bless you for having your priorities right.

I'm so happy for you with your family, it is THE true treasure.

So glad I popped in, will just cover you in general prayer.
