I have been having more "foggy head" moments in the past six months than I care to remember which led me to talking with one of my best friends from high school (not as close now & to be honest that's ok). I was talking to her about my forgetting stuff & she suggested that i get my thyroid levels checked. So last Friday that's exactly what I did. I had labs drawn that morning and most of my labs were back the next afternooon (some were back way before than). No thyroid issues but i do have mild eczema and a vitamin D deficiency. Both being treated. So what's up with my blog title? Wheat is a trigger food for eczema flare ups. I met with a nutritionist yesterday and the meeting was wonderful. I got some help for me & a little help for my daughter (she thinks she doesn't need breakfast). When I was in that meeting I mentioned my eczema diagnosis to her & what set off that morning's flare up. She suggested I go gluten free due to a possible gluten intolerance. Great not only can I not have regular dairy bye bye every cake i love from the bakery :(.

I first learned to cross stitch in junior high or high school (to long ago to remember). I gave it up because I didn't have time in college. I wish I hadn't though.
Anyway, let's jump to now...I have been watching Round the Twist with Carin pretty much since the beginning of the podcast. She has been cross stitching these really cute patterns. So a few people I follow on Instagram also cross stitch, yeah do you see where this is going? I get emails w/ free patterns daily thanks to one of the followers. Then I ordered 4 (yes 4) of The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's patterns.
+Autum Harvest Festival sampler
+A Very Merry Christmas Town
+Story Time Classics sampler
I am currently working on the autumn harvest festival sampler. I think then I'll work on the Christmas one.
I have a lot of Christmas knitting to do too so I guess I'll see how much I can truly get done.

Knitting wise it's been a productive 17 months. I've knit 2 sweaters, 4 1/2 pairs of socks, crocheted a shawl & working on another one.
Life in general....dating someone for a little over a year. He's a sweetheart & someone I know I can lean on.
