Thank you for your Patience!

I know it has been ages, almost a month I think since I have posted last.  I feel terrible about it, but there hasnt been much progress on my stitching.  As you can see, it has taken me almost a month to fill in this cloud.  A MONTH!!!!!!  I have been very, very busy, and continue to be so, but I have managed to get in some time this past few days to stitch this cloud.  It seemed eternal.  Easy though, not to have to watch the pattern, but forever with the filling in.

Not much to report otherwise, I appreciate all of you who regularly visit my blog to see if I have posted something yet...... and to all those who have commented and emailed, to hope all is well with me.  Yes, it is very well, just very busy.  I have been able to scan some of my favorite blogs, not much time to comment and chat.  I miss it terribly!!  Everyone is moving along so wonderfully on their pieces, I love the progress on Sarah Woodham so many of you are making, and Ann Reyner.  Wow, I cant wait to get my hands into those projects, although I dont see that happening too soon.  

I know that Nashville market has come and gone, and I havent even had much time to see what is new!!  It is hard to keep up with all the new projects and gossip!!  Wow!!!

I noticed yesterday that I have had my blog now for over 1 year.  It is fun to see what I was working on this time last year.  How many projects I accomplished.  It sure is a great way to keep a 'diary' of what has gone on in life.   Gosh, I wonder if I will finish 1 this year?!  Yes, I think/hope at least 1!!!  

I am hoping to get some time in the next few weeks to stitch more on PL, and hope to post more in March then in February.  No promises though!  Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!!

Banner done!

This is my progress on PL!  What a relief to get that banner done. I wasnt going to just do the whole thing, but I am glad it is out of the way.  I am happily stitching the cloud--but last night I began to panic a bit, I didnt realize that the cloud was not centered with the banner.  HUH?  How could it be that off?!!  I scrambled for the picture and  luckily saw that I was not off at all.  Thank goodness :)  I dont really look at the picture when I am stitching, just the graph, so I guess I wasnt paying to much attention.  Non- the- less, I hope to be filling in the cloud later today.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring for PL?!

Grammys Anyone?



Anyone watch the Grammy Awards last night?  We did...we watched 2 different ways.  Back in the City of Angels, we decided to hit the carpet running!   Here are just a few pics from our afternoon out.  We did alot of sightseeing yesterday.   The red carpet for the Grammys was a sight to see- if anyone has been to a red carpet event, this one is definately different then the typical Movie premiere.  This is a covered event, unlike the Oscars, and it was very hard to see anyone.  We got a few shots in, and it was so fun watching limo after limo after limo pull into the street-- and wait to see who would be rushed out.  Since we were there really early, we didnt get to see Beyonce & Jay Z or Lady Gaga or Taylor Swift, but we did see Shir Shomron (the gal in the orange flowing dress).  Inside the tent were glorious chandeliers and lights everywhere.  The last pic shows Chandeliers for the after party-- They are just spectacular-- sparkling in the sun. 

After playing Paparazzi for a while, we went and grabbed a bite to eat on Sunset Blvd., and ended up rubbing elbows with Adrian Grenier from Entourage (HBO), he plays Vincent Chase.  He was very close, and had his buddies with him. No pics of him though, we put our cameras to bed and just took it all in.  I didnt want to be Stalk-erazzi :)  What a great time.  I love Los Angeles, love to get dressed up-- for no reason what so ever.  We are meeting up with friends and relatives in the next bit, I know it will be great fun.  As always!!!!

I do have PL updates, but I will wait until tomorrow to post, I have to get the iron out and make it look presentable.  We shall see it soon enough!  Hope everyone enjoyed there weekend!!  Thanks for the comments on my stash, I have an idea on which to do next, but that could change-- in an LA minute!!!
