dinner ready. Hubby Is on his way back from out of town. Back to the
happy chair and more stitching!!!!
Just ordered a couple of the Little House Needlework Christmas
ornaments from 123stitch.com. Not sure that I ordered them in the
order they were put out. Trying to join Vonna's LHN ornament SAL. I
think hope these will be travel/ plane friendly and that I can get
some ornaments cranked out before Christmas.

All day stitching today!!! Will be working on Mary Wigham and on this WIP: The Teacher by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum. She was big in the needlework world for a while there. Now I rarely hear about her. I rarely see any of her pieces on any blogs. Anyone out there stitching any of her work?

I continue to try to get this blog thing going. I know the type of blog I want, just cant seem to get it either in design or activity. I just figured out how to send pics from my phone to my blog. Perhaps that will help in getting pics up on my blog. I still dont like the font size, styles or layout so will continue to play around with it. I also set up a Good Reads widget so I can keep track of the books I have read, am reading and waiting to read.

I am not sure I am doing this right, but wanted to advertise a giveaway I just signed up for. It is a giveaway for Down Sunshine Lane. I put the link in the left hand side of my blog. Any tips on how to advertise future giveaways in the posts area would be very helpful

I dont know why the last pic or Mary came out on its side. I could not straighten it out. Here is an upright pic. I just added the blue to my existing pallete. Not sure if it will stay. I will have to see what it looks like interspersed throughout the piece. My living room in red with some browns and gold, but recently I added some colonial blues.

Not sure what blogger is doing or why its loading the pics weird and not lettin me type where I want to type. Below are some pics of what I am up to. The first is an artichoke ball, ( my German friend taught me how to make these when we lived in Germany) I made it for one of hubby's co-workers. Next are some fabrics I picked out for a baby quilt. The colors look so much better in real life, I promise!. Next is my latest Vera Bradley. Got it for our next vacation. Last pic is the squares I have been making for my new niece or nephew. Again the camera or my phone rather, did not do the colors justice, they are far brighter, I have also added a lime green and am putting them together now.
So, I thought I was going to reform and become a great blogger and get loads of stitching done this summer but that has not happened. I am going to be a new aunt so I have been spending time crocheting, reading and not much else (besides some summer courses). Pictures to follow...
