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
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!
