Nothing to Show

Galatea

I have no stitching to show you today, but since I’ve been so inconsistent with blogging lately, I thought I’d go ahead and post. I’ve been stitching quite a bit, even if I have nothing to show. I was so thankful to have a holiday yesterday. Eric and I spent the majority of the day watching Season 1 of Dark Angel and I stitched all day on my Neighborhood RR. I am making good progress on it, and should have my block finished by the end of the week. I’ll post a photo when I’m all done with it. I’ve also been stitching quite a bit on Tesori. I finished all the border for the first region, and have most of the block filled in. Once I’m finished with the Veneto block, I’ll post a photo. It just seems like for such small-ish pieces, there’s no need for me to post progress photos. But, soon – I promise! I am going this evening to pick up my mat for our maps, so that I can finally get that framed – hopefully the mat is right this time. I also hope to get Lemon Meringue Sampler framed and hung this weekend. It’s such a shame to have all the pieces, but not have it framed and hung up!

We did go see fireworks last night. Luckily the rain held off long enough that we were able to enjoy the display! It has been raining and raining and raining here. There are a lot of places in Texas that are having severe flooding issues, etc. Eric’s parents live on some water here, and the water level has risen so much it has completely submerged the posts and cable at the bottom of their property. Their neighbors across the water have their entire wrought iron fence submerged. It’s crazy. I am so thankful we are getting lots of rain because every year we have such a problem with draught, etc. It is even relatively cool outside in the evenings, which is heavenly! But, back to fireworks… I took my knitting with me and restarted my Homespun Wrap, and made a bit of progress on it before the fireworks started and I lost my light. Eric got some great photos too, so if may post one as soon as he has a chance to really look at them.

I am back at work today, but it is nice only having two days left to work this week. The photo above is of the new Passione Ricamo design, Galatea. Love her!! I have really been wanting to indulge in some PR charts lately…they are all so beautiful. I did purchase The Night, but I am also wanting to stitch Dawn (Carol’s is coming along beautifully!), Queen of the Fairies, Lady of the Snow, Enchanted Fairy and of course Galatea!! They are just all so beautiful. And frankly, I am not that into fairies, but these just have something about them that draw me in. I’m off to update my wish list!

Thanks for stopping by. As always, I appreciate it! I promise I’ll have photos soon!

I am grateful for a day of stitching.

    Isn’t it fun to stitch and watch a series of shows like that!? I get more done that way, too. I’m with you about the PR charts..there is something very ethereal about them. Can’t wait for the little mermaid. I’m hooked…
    Hugs,

    The concept of TV show seasons on DVD is excellent!! We’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy.

    For a while now, reading your blog reminded me of another blog, but I couldn’t place it. Recently, it came to me: Good to be Girl. It’s a knitting blog, but you both have really cool artsy blogs.

    I ‘try’ to watch and stitch but I either miss parts of the show, or miss parts of the chart, lol.

    I listen to story tapes instead, on my walkman. Bliss 😀
