I have been a bad, bad blogger.
Where should I start?
First, I talked Bonnie into ordering me a stitch bag. She oh-so-nicely did so and Dani was able to pick it up for me when they saw each other.
I know - shocking that it's blue.
Then I got the most excellent surprise in my mailbox from sunny Arizona. Kathy sent me these lovely scissors
They're in my scissor frog now but I'll have to make a fob soon. Thank you Kathy :)
I've been trying to do some "professional development", and have been using precious stitching time to work on a course about project management. Yes, I know I'm crazy. But the first part is almost done.
I went last week to see the ice sculptures at Winterlude - and they were closed. Despite the fact the weather had turned cold they had closed the exhibit and wrapped everything - for the final weekend. So no cool pictures this year. I was not very impressed (and at the time also cold).
I do have a little stitching done. I strained a muscle in my hand a couple week's ago on the bus so stitching was slow/not happening for awhile. It seems mostly better now so I can pick up again.
Here is Earthdancer:
It's kind of hard to tell, but there is a trail of white down the left side. In fact the white is the very edge of the design.
I managed to get a little done on CdC
I received a wedding invitation in the mail this week, which means a new project. I spoke to the bride in June and she picked the piece. Wedding row by Bent Creek. Her colours are silver and navy/midnight blue. If any wants to suggest fabric or thread let me know.
Now that I've bored you all with that - I'm off to study - then stitch.
