Flower Power Update

On to stitchy news! I have picked up Flower Power again and have made some progress... I FINALLY FINISHED THOSE FOXGLOVES! Too many colour changes, they were making me NUTS. Well, they are done and I am on to Coneflowers. After those I will be at the 2/3 finished mark and from the middle all the way left will be complete. I have other blogs to post on so I'd best get going but check back here, I will do a much better job from now on of keeping you all in the stitchy loop.

Here's where I was at last time I worked on Flower Power, December '07

Now I am here, April 08. Not much progress but I will persist!

Traci L, if you are reading this, you were right! There is 032 Pearl Cord on the list and I have ordered some in. We could always share the spool, I'm nowhere near that part... yet :)

Have a great day everyone!

Just a Little Behind :)

It has been a while, but it's not unlike me to skip weeks here and there. With all the packing then the moving and the reopening at work, different shifts/schedules... spending every spare minute I have either with my sweethearts or catching up on sleep... I haven't had much time to think about techy blog stuff. A break is good now and then but this space is how I keep track of various projects so I'd best get on with it. On that note and seeing as how this blog is now read mostly by stitchers here is some news:

Originally this started as a 'gratitude' blog to open my mind to the everday joys I have in my life, then into a 'rant' blog to relieve stress from life's frustrations and eventually into a 'family' blog to share my sweetest memories of the two most important men in my life (hubby AKA Spaz and step-son AKA Boo), all those changes, within a year! Lastly, it has finally and forever evolved into a stitching blog. That's it. I will be starting a new blog for family news which will be for members by invitation only, so if you email me I will assign you a username and password along with the URL for that blog. One more small step for those who have access to it, peace of mind for me. Any posts on this blog relating to my family have now been transferred to there. Co-workers and shop customers and strangers won't have to read my personal stuff anymore! Phew eh? Yay! I feel better now!

Have a wonderful day!
