Stitching and more

12/09/2011

 
Yes, I am stitching and yes, trying to blog but it gets frustrating when you write a perfectly good blog off the top of your head and then it gets lost in cyberland.  I KNOW I saved it!  Ok, I feel better now.
I'm practicing for TUSAL 2012 by saving my ORT's.  If that sentence doesn't make any sense to you click on TUSAL 2010 in the side bar.  Next I need to find a pretty glass container to put them in.  If only I'd have known to look last summer when I was going to garage sales, but I'm sure one is just waiting for me my next trip to Caring and Sharing. 
The Christmas ornaments are coming along, I'm about 3/4 done with 9 of 10.  I've had about enough of blending filiments for the time being so I'm anxious to finish 10 of 10.  I like the effect of the shiny filiment but much more enjoy just using floss.  I'll get some pictures up soon. Afterall, it's what I look at first on everyone else's blog.  That's where the inspiration comes. 
After seeing so many cross stitchers doing and talking about HAED's I just had to find out what that's all about.  What beautiful designs!  (Click here.)  I know what my next cross stitch purchase is going to be if I can decide which one.  Of course, until then I have plenty of WIP's and such around here to keep me busy. 
I've also been playing with the appearance of the blog/website.  It seems each time I look at someone else's I see something I'd like to do for mine and then the time playing around and getting it done becomes consuming.  I confess, I sometimes suffer from the "grass is greener" syndrome.
Better get to work, I've got pictures to take and then back to stitching!!!
And a big happy stitching to you, too!!
OK, this lets hope this post doesn't get lost.  Here goes......
