Missing In Action

I know I've been missing for a while, and I want to apologize. I am currently fighting a major health problem and the medications are causing me to have very little motivation to get much done, let alone share it.
I've been working on the never-ending tatted orniments for the soldiers, doing a little beading every day on a surprise project and just whatever I get in the mood for (lots of reading and tv). One new thing - I am exploring the world with food. I am trying to eat healthier and am trying new foods from around the world so I won't get bored. :->
Here is one of my embroidery projects I managed to final do and finish. It is a cross-stitch kit in 18-ct Aida.

This is my pride and joy! I started this piece last fall and finished it about a week ago. It is all freehand embroidery using the split chain stitch. It began as an experiment to learn the stitch and just kept growing and decided it wanted to be a complete piece.

Your split chain piece is beautiful! You did a very good job with it. I'm going to have to look that stitch up. I like the little Halloween cat too. :o)

Your work is lovely. I used to cross stitch and sew a lot, but I just can't seem to find the time any more. I would love to learn tatting! It is a lovely art that is slowly being lost. I would love to see some more of your tatting work!
