A touch of the blahs

I'm feeling a bit low and stressed at the moment, so I haven't felt like posting. Haven't felt like much of anything, to be honest.

This will pass. With gritted teeth at times, but it will pass!

Plans changing and disappointing turns of events aren't helping. But I have talked over one of the major stressors with a person who is in a position to help, and I feel better for that.

I had struggles with depression for years, and I know that I can and will overcome them. But when an episode hits me, it still has the power to knock me off my feet and mess with my head in all kinds of ways.

If you are waiting for a freebie pattern from me, I will be sending them out at the weekend. And I will be posting April's freebie pattern then too. I'm sorry for the delays.

It hasn't been all doom and gloom - on Saturday, I went with my Sis, BiL and The Tot to Hardwick Hall, and I will post about that, especially the needlework... but for now, I will just leave you with a taster of the building:

Here's wishing you a little joy ... I noticed when browsing some of your older posts that your wish list included LHN's Seasons of ... series.
I no longer have your snail mail address, but if you send it to me, I'd be happy to forward the charts to you. Can't have you feeling blah ... I enjoy reading your blog way too much!!!

Chin up! My whole life has been colored in blues and grays so I understand, but knowing it will pass ( and it will) is a great relief. Tomorrow will be better....

Sorry to hear you're feeling the blahs. I know how that is! I hope you find your happy center soon. It's the little things that really help!

Bless your heart...I think we've all struggled with varying degrees of depression at some point in our lives. It's a beast to deal with, but sometimes, it can help to know that others have been there, done that, and survived it.
I'm sending gentle hugs your way - hope they help you feel better soon and that you'll get back to your lovely stitching.

Hey Nic, I can sympathize from a "been there" standpoint, too. Ugh, isn't it a nasty beast? Just when you think you've stamped it down for good, there it is again. Take care.

Oy, so sorry. That's the way depression hits me, too...total apathy. Here's to good feelings coming your way again, soon!
