I finally had time to scan in my progress on Mar’s Quaker design. I’m using Carrie’s Threads in “Olives”, on a 32 ct. Lambswool Jobelan and loving every minute of it! I started this in the airport on my way to Nashville, and was able to work on it a bit in the hotel room on Monday morning while watching a bit of TV. (I hadn’t watched daytime television in several years, and after last Monday morning I remember why.) It’s stitching up very quickly, and although I’ve had to set it aside this week to catch up on work stuff, I hope to pick it back up again soon. I think this will be my official travel project.
Delightful news! My blog has been added to Delightful Blogs, which is a listing of blogs which are… well, delightful :) Most of the blogs listed are chock full of sweet, pretty things; not sure how mine got in but at least I meet the “must post regularly” guideline. Speaking of delightful, Posy Gets Cozy, Wee Wonderfuls, and Molly Chicken are a few of my favorite all-purpose sweet & pretty daily living blogs. I keep thinking I need to make a new bloglist over on the sidebar because I think nearly all that I have listed are stitching related. And there is more to life. Not much more, mind you, but I do try to spend at least 15 minutes every day on non-xs related activities :)
I had a discussion today with someone about my writing a book. I’ll have to mull this over, because I’m not generally a good writer. Oh, I have my witty moments, but mostly I think I just don’t care for writing. I think the way I will approach this will be to write down my thought-blurbs (another term for casual essays) here & there when they hit me and see what (if anything) develops. Oh- and this would be a business book relating to the needlework industry, btw.
My cat has been all over me all day long! She’s in a super snuggly mood… perhaps I better go ahead and take the 4 day old valentine down from her wall before she overdoses on love vibes.
