Not Disappeared Totally

I'm still here, just not feeling much like blogging or anything else for that matter recently. Going through a very down period and although I'm still stitching I don't seem to be able to get the joy out of it that I usually do.
But I thought I'd better add a couple of pics before you all think I've disappeared totally.
First of all is my update of Cabin In The Woods. I've done a tiny bit more since this pic and now have about 1200 stitches left to do to finish the page. I'm not sure whether I will start the next page once this is finished or move onto something else for a change. I'm struggling to decide as nothing is really calling at the moment so will see.

Next is an old finish that I finally made up into a cube type finish last weekend, only 2 years late. I finished this in Spring 2007 so it was about time it got to be displayed. It is Waxing Moon's Simply Spring and I have Summer, Autumn and Christmas in my stash still to stitch at some point.

I am way behind on my blog reading and commenting. I'm also aware I never interviewed Karan some time back for a position in the craft shop I'll be running in Helen's neighbourhood when construction is finished. I'm really sorry Karan, I haven't forgotten, but I will get around to it soon I promise.
Over the Easter weekend we went away in our caravan to North Wales and DH agreed to take me to The Nimble Thimble for a visit. I had a great time drooling over all her models and came back with some lovely additions to my stash. Once I'm feeling a bit brighter I'll take some pics and let you see what I got.
I was also lucky enough to win a giveaway on Bev's blog before Easter for The Trilogy's Easter Line Up and I said to celebrate my win I would in turn have a giveaway on here, so watch out soon for mine.
Thanks to everyone who stops by to read about my stitching even though I'm very lax at updating lately.

Simply Spring is such a lovely finish. The great spring weather seems to inspire us to finish-finish some of out spring stitching as I was doing the same a week or so ago.
