Hey all! Thanks so much for the encouraging comments! Those of you that know me know that I’m one of those ‘let me blend in’ kind of people. If there’s a crowd, I’ll be the one in the middle or at the back trying not to be noticed! It’s not in my nature to be at the front and, although I’ve been contemplating doing this for a while, there’s no doubt that the thought of actually putting myself and my thoughts out there in blog-land somehow felt to me like standing way out on my own waving my arms wildly saying ‘look at me’!! But, now that I’ve done it I’m realising that everything is still fine in my world, I’m not going to be struck down by lightening and in the vast expanse of blogging out there I’m very much ‘one of the crowd’ and I should just settle in and enjoy it.
Stitching-wise you’ll see I’m still working on Betsy. I always have been, and probably always will be, a ‘one project at a time and work on it until it’s finished’ person although my stash is not totally free of UFO’s (DT’s Toccata I comes to mind straightaway but let’s not talk about that this time!). The word ‘rotation’ is yet to be in my stitching vocabulary. I see how it can work well but I have this mental image of me going round and round in circles and never actually finishing anything! Now, in truth, I do slip the occasional smaller project in and I’m starting to hear those words that should only be whispered when we’re still in October …… Christmas stitching ….. perish the thought! However, I know that I need to start thinking about it now and then I’ll actually get some done. Can someone please tell me why 2009 seems to be going so quickly?!?!?!?!
Okay, let me leave you with a picture of my progress on Betsy.
Until next time…..
