I know that over the past several months my blogging has not been as often as I would have liked. My commenting also has suffered. It seems that there might be a lot of this going on right now int he blogging world. Is it because it’s summer over here, or because everyone is just busy? I’ve noticed that several of my regular commenters have been absent from my blog. Perhaps what I’m posting is not up to the usual par? Anyway, to make up for my lack of posts, I thought I’d share a finish, a WIP, and something drool-worthy. I hope to be able to post some of our Philadelphia pictures soon, but at the moment Eric is holding them hostage on his pc. I also need to show you my birthday present from him – as soon as I have a few minutes to get it out of the box! So, on with the show… and I want to take a second to thank everyone that does stop by and comment. I really appreciate it, and know that it is precious time you are taking out of your busy life to come and take a look at what I’m doing in mine. So, thank you!
I think I have three more of these Limited Edition WhimZis in my stash to stitch, then I will be caught up. One of my goals is to be caught up on these by the end of the year. I also intend to be caught up on my Shepherd’s Bush ornaments by then as well. So, my next small to stitch with be Bethlehem Slept.
Here’s my current progress on Baby Garden. I’m close to being done with the row I’m on, and that will put me past the halfway mark. It’s moving along a little faster, and I hope to have this one done in order to give it as a Christmas gift. The sooner I finish it though, the sooner I can get back to stitching on Barnabee. I can’t believe I’m still not done with that one!
And have you seen the new Just Nan piece at Silver Needle?
I couldn’t resist this one either, and have reserved my piece. Too cute, huh? A lot of people are comparing it to CA Wells’ Pyramid Etui, but I think this one has a completely different feel to it.
That’s all I have for you today. I’m going to a friend’s birthday gathering at a tea shop this afternoon, which should be fun. Hope to hear from you all, including those that are “missing”.
I am grateful for beginning a new poem.
