And We're Back...

Phew! I feel like I have been running nonstop for the past 2 months or so!

April really piled on the mayhem. I had an exam every week in April, and I was tutoring my lab partner for all of those exams. I felt like I was always leaving the house to run off to the library when DH got home from work. Cuddle Bug also celebrated his 4th birthday with three parties of varying magnitude, and Easter came and went in there somewhere. But my class is over (I got an A) and I'm not taking any classes this summer. So I am finally feeling like I have a second to exhale. I feel like I haven't had a second to breathe since March!

Speaking of March, I haven't stitched anything since March either. But I do have an exchange coming up that needs my attention so I will be getting to that very soon.

I can show you the exchange I sent to Ann through Stitch It and Exchange It way back in all the craziness of April. I stitched the Egg-cetera bird from Cross Eyed Cricket (one of my favorite little spring-time stitches) and finished it as a pinkeep. I included Hershey's kisses, tea, a cut of fabric, a skein of CC and (because Ann is Catholic like myself) I threw in a book of Poetry by Pope John Paul II and a finger rosary.

The only other crafty thing I have to show for myself the past few months is this quilt I finished up yesterday. It is going to DH's sweet cousin who just had a baby girl a few weeks ago. I made it with Thimble Blossom's Double Dip pattern and some of the Nature's Chorus layer Cake Camille sent me a few months ago.

In other news, I've been working on improving my health and physical fitness. I ran consistently before my pregnancy with LadyBug. Now I'm back at it. I have decided that 2011 is the year I will run my first half marathon and maybe even do a marathon! I've been eating right, cutting out the crap, and running as often as I can. I'm feeling better, more energized, and stronger. At least I can say in all the crazy of the past few months I'm getting it together!

Thank you to anyone who has stuck with me during my absence. I missed so many amazing projects and giveaways from all of you while I was on a bloggy hiatus.

Happy Tuesday all!
