Well, it has been forever since I have posted a thing, I have had my head so far up under my Christmas Tree this year, I almost forget I have a hobby :) LOL. Less than 2 weeks till Christmas and so much to be done. Our winter break is almost here for us, and I look forward to much needed time off.
I am looking forward to some fun filled next few weeks. Relatives to see--(yes, you read correctly, relatives) I look forward to seeing these relatives :) There is a new baby that was born 2 weeks ago, and twins arriving any day. This is going to be a great next few weeks for sure. I just found out that another cousin of mine is due in May, they keep trying for the beloved girl...... So far, my 3 cousins in that family have ALL BOYS!!! Something I am sure, they are drinking from there own faucets :) Maybe this Spring, we shall have some frilly, girlly outfits to buy.
I have gotten a tiny bit of stitching in, all of you talking about new starts on January 1st, I am thinking of 1 or 2 I could start I guess, but this last week I have been focused on finishing. I have so many started, that it would be great to get these WIP's that I have had going for like 2 years out of the way, to make room for something just amazing.
For the last few nights, I have been stitching on Bramble and the Rose, by Ink Circles. Such a great design, that I started at least last year, with the most gorgeous Gloriana Ltd Edition Silk thread on 40ct Lakeside Linen Meadow Rue. Exquisite combination I must say, and I feel like I am finally making some serious progress. I have been stuck on page 3 (starting on the top right) and I have almost finished page 6 and started page 9. You see there are 3 pages across, by 3 pages down, for a total of 9 pages. I have been in the habit of starting everything I start on the top right, for over a year now. I love it. I cant believe I havent started in the center for so long. They still havent found me to tell me I am doing it incorrectly. I dont think they will be able too!!!!! LOL.
So, you wonder, will I ever get over these rambling? You know, the lack of communication I have daily, these blog posts are simply amazing for all the ranting and raving you have, and you now that your DH is NOT interested in Cross stitch right? (Well, I cant lie, my Husband is, but really how much can the poor man take?!!!!!) I do have pics of my project, I am not really far, but, it is fun after all to share these with all of you fabulous stitchers who read this blog at least every time there is a new post!!!
My goal is to get this done this month yet. A big yet small goal for me. Looking forward to the challenge. Isnt it gorgeous? The colors of course, right up my alley. Cant wait to show you more!!!!!!
