Hello, friends -

I haven't been around in a long while, and thought I'd pop in and say  
hello. I'm telling you, full-time work really gets in the way of  
stitching time! But I keep at it (the stitching, that is), just much  
more slowly.

I've made myself a promise to finish WIPs before undertaking any major  
new pieces, and am proud that I finally finished Emie Bishop's "The  
Garden," which took several years of non-continuous stitching. I posted  
a photo on r.c.t.n.p in "Sue's folder". And Joan encouraged me to stop  
in and say hello after a long absence.

Just at the moment I'm working on some little bookmarks - using up  
scraps of fabric by hemstitching around and cross stitching a little  
something on it - and completing another WIP, a Nutmeg company Christmas  
cottage 3-D ornament. I did one two years ago that got first place in  
the state fair and I started this one at the same time, then didn't look  
at it again until two weeks ago. This week I've been cleaning out and  
rearranging the TV room where I have a lot of stash just piled around;  
in the coming week I'll be organizing it and choosing which WIP to  
tackle next. DH and I are getting to the "we REALLY have to think about  
downsizing" stage, so I have to get a handle on my stitching addiction!

Happy to see a bunch of familiar names still posting!


Re: hello again
Good to see you Sue.  It is always nice to get pieces finished.  I need to  
do the framing on a lot of stitched pieces and I have enough stash for 10  
people to be able to stitch in a lifetime.  Hope you stay around.

I agree!  If we didn't need the money to supply our fixes, life would be  
much better! :)
