One Done

Hello stitching Friends!
I hope that the first week of 2013 has been good to you. I am trying to get back to a normal schedule but it is hard. The stress at work this month is extreme. They are reorganizing the pharmacy and installing a new Rx system. I will be glad when the month is over. I hope that I can be patient and be able to shake things off easily. It has messed up my diet and I have been stress eating. I hate that. I am hoping to be in control this week.
I did finish my LHN ornament...



Sorry for the poor photo. Now I need to get some stitching on Marietta done.
Rich and I did get out and hike this morning.



I saw this guy on the trail. The trail looks so different since all the leaves are gone.
That's it from here. Have a great week.

Lovely finish! and I can totally relate about work being stressful. This month for me is hectic already and there is so much to do. We both just have to take it one day at a time. :)

What a pretty ornament! And that tree made me laugh! :) Work issues can definitely make life stressful - hopefully you can find some relaxation in your stitching. Hope the month goes by as painlessly as possible. :)

Chris,
I hope things at work settle down for you.

Don't stress about the eating and exercise. You will get back to it. Just think of it as a little break. Keep telling yourself it is okay. I know you will get back to it. (((hugs)))

Your finish is gorgeous. What a cool looking tree. Thanks for sharing.

Margaret said...

I love the finish! Sorry about all the stress. Doesn't sound like fun at all.

Nicola said...

Stress especially work related is not good for diets. Hopefully the new system when up and running will make life easier.

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Great finish! Hope your work situation will calm down soon. It's so hard to have to go everyday, and especially when it's not a pleasant experience.

Vickie said...

That is very pretty Chris. That tree is funny,huh? Hang in there. We all slip a bit now and then. Just work a bit longer at exercising. ;)

Mary said...

Lovely finish! Hang in there - it will get better. That's an awesome face on that tree! Kinda freaky, though...

Susan said...

Beautiful finish. Hope work calms down for you. I haven't been back to work yet - tomorrow is my first day back after 5 weeks out (been nursing The Hubs after brain surgery) and I am not looking forward to it. The only thing really saving my sanity is that I was able to do some work from home so my email box isn't overflowing! That tree photo is awesome!

Siobhán said...

Congratulations on the finish...it's beautiful!

I think that tree looks like he's just been told some shocking gossip about the elm down the path! =O =)
