Hello dear readers!
Oh, how I have missed seeing everyone and reading all of your wonderful posts. Life has been crazy and focused on work, work, work. I have dearly missed everyone and am so glad to be able to poke my head in and say "Hello!" Hopefully you all are doing well, stitching like crazy and keeping cool! I look forward to catching up!
As I mentioned, life has been crazy and I have been searching for some balance. What good is life if it all work and no play, right? I do have good news though...I finished the requirements for my teaching license and I received my official license in the mail just a few weeks ago. I have been madly filling out teaching applications and then hurriedly waiting for telephone calls. I have had some calls and interviews, so things are moving forward!
I did get two of my 2010 finishes framed...I am rather pleased with the results. I framed "Blessed Be..." by Blue Ribbon Designs and Sara Schultz by Ginger and Spice. Here they are...
Friday was a glorious day filled with fun, fellowship and a trip to my LNS. My dear friend Robin met me at my LNS, Cross Stitch Station. We talked, shopped, talked and shopped some more! It was wonderful being able to spend time with someone who is as excited about stitching as me! We both found some great stash...unfortunately, I did not snap a picture of what I found...guess I will have to do that next time!
Believe it or not, I have had a *little* time to stitch over the past month and a half, but unfortunately do not have any finishes to report. Here is a snippet of what I have been working on. First, I was able to get about a third of Twenty Third Psalm done...now I am over half done!
I have also logged a few hours on Richmond Sampler. I have had so many people contact me about this beautiful piece and I am thrilled that so many of you are planning on being a part of the online class through the Essamplaire. I have finally stitched the border outline all the way across the top. Now I feel like I am getting somewhere. Here is a pic of my progress so far...(please excuse the wrinkles...the iron was not handy at the time)
Again, it is good to be back and I look forward to catching up with you all! Hubby is at work, but I am off to meet him and watch the fireworks! Stay cool and enjoy the holiday weekend!
