Y'all can't get rid of me that easy!

I'm ba-a-ack! Miss me? Thought I fell off the face of the planet? Well wonder no longer, dear readers. CraftWench is back.

My life has been, to put it bluntly, circling the drain. Mr. CW's grandmother passed away (may she rest in peace), D-san (the ninja baby) decided giving the entire family a heart attack by not breathing was a good idea, my migraines are packing a huge punch, my computer is still dead, and finals happened. D-san is now being treated for apnea and finals are over. Two out of five ain't bad, I suppose.

So what does this mean for the craft-corner? No progress was made... at all. I dropped everything to deal with what life threw at me, until two nights ago. I picked up my hummingbird cross stitch, took my frustration and turned it into something positive.

I've decided to donate my hummingbirds (that one was bittersweet as it was meant for my grandmother) to a friend's rescue to auction off at a fundraiser. ( Check them out, they're a great organization.

So to get back into the swing of things, I'm answering the newest SBQ:

For seasoned stitchers: Define a stitching term or acronym for new stitchers.

Well, my favorite term has always been SABLE. SABLE means Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy. I... am so there. Between what I have acquired on my own or through my pusher (Mr. CW), and what I inherited, there is no way I will ever finish.
