African Lady Update...



Here is a little more on my African Lady by Bleu de Soie. She now has her turban on and one arm complete. If you scroll down a couple of posts, you can see where I was previously. She has been fun to stitch! Please forgive my wrinkles. I have started work on my winter seasonal exchange and I also started alchemical romance by Ink Circles on a lovely piece of lilac fabric by WDW. I will show that perhaps when I get some more motifs on it. There is not too much going on here, I have been playing around in my stash which is always fun! I am also getting excited to see what is going to come out of Nashville this year! Some really gorgeous things being previewed already such as the new designs by Cat's Whisker's. Also, the new designs by LHN and CCN too. I am looking forward to sweet treats by CCN-maybe because I am on a diet-LOL If you can't eat it-stitch it!

Allura presented me with the you make my day award, which is so very kind of her. I can't just pick ten people as so many of you make my day by blogging and coming by to visit me and by commenting on my blog! Thank you again Allura and thank you my stitching friends!

On a sad note. Heath Ledger's death is very tragic,to be so young and have so much ahead of you. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends. Tomorrow is not promised-live each day to the fullest!

Such progress on your African lady! And she's so beautiful, elegant...
I also feel Heath Ledger's passing is a tragedy. You're right, living each day to the fullest is the best way to cope with unavoidable death...
Take care,
