It seems like it has been awhile since I posted anything on my blog. Shame on me but sometimes life just gets in the way!
Very little stitching for me over the weekend. We stayed busy during the days and since my stitching lamp is still broken, it was next to impossible to do any stitching in the darker hours. I needed a break anyway. My hands are fine. As much as I love the current WIP, I am just starting to feel tired of it. It seems to be dragging on a little more than I had planned. Of course, I had originally planned to make this piece be a year long project. I missed getting it finished in time for the framing sale so I don't feel as pushed to finish it off so quickly now. I just want to do something with more rich reds and greens and mustard yellows! Something with my color pallet ! On the other hand, I am over half way finished so I hate to set it down in fear it will become a UFO! Talk about being torn in two different directions at once!
*update* My very smart and very sweet husband fixed my stitching lamp so I am good to go now!
Yippy Dippy Doodle! I have over 100 followers now! How fun is that! That's not really a lot compared to some other blogs I read but for little ol' me, it's fantastic!
I went by the library and picked up the quilt book they had on hold for me. It is an older Thimbleberries book and I used to have it but a lot of my quilting books went missing mysteriously and I wonder if someone packed them up in a box that was being sent to Goodwill! Anywho, I have the book on loan for a few weeks and can get the measurements I need to get started. They are waiting for another book to be returned and they will hold it for me also. Sure beats having to buy them!
The past several days have been very rainy and we have even had some very loud thunderstorms! Thankfully, no heavy winds or hail along with them.
It has been so much fun to go outside this past week because the air has been full of the sounds of baby birds chirping up a storm for some attention and food! I was thrilled to discover that the bluebirds who I thought had abandoned the nest they were building in our bluebird house really didn't! There is a whole family of little baby blues in there just making all kinds of sweet noise!
