A Little Progress......



I find it hard to believe that I haven't posted here in two months! Anyone miss me? LOL Life has been busy, getting the kids ready for school. Very little stitching has went on-I have been distracted with all the kid related stuff and reading more. Now that's not to say I haven't been stashing some because I can not tell a lie-LOL

I am working slowly on The Simple Things by Blackbird Designs. So you can see a little more progress now. You can see previous progress if you scroll down this page a bit. Sorry about the wrinkles. I have also spent some time going through my stash and thinking about what I really want to stitch. I don't have any concrete ideas-but at least my stuff is a bit better organized. I am also excited because there is a market this month and that means lots of new stuff! Also, the new Gingher scissors come out and not to forget the ornament magazine too!

I had considered not blogging anymore but I can't as blogging has been a beautiful source of friendship, fun and inspiration! Thank you all for your continued support, friendship and visits! Below is a wonderful ceramic teapot that I bought from Etsy. It is by a lovely artist called Karin and you can find out more about her at Karin's Art. It is such a fun piece that I thought I would show it to you! Anyway, I have yakked enough! I am going to run for now! Have a great holiday weekend!

Great progress on Simple Things. I'm envious of your blackbird - now I'm gonna have to get started on the birds in mine!! Your teapot is fabulous - what a great find!

Bette said...

Very cute teapot. I'd miss reading your wonderful blog if you quit.

Kathy A. said...

Ahh, there you are. Summer seems to do us all in. There is decidely less blogging in those wonderful days of summer. Nice to have you back.

Hazel said...

Sharon that is one beautiful wip! I know what you mean about giving up blogging as it is very time consuming but I have decided to blog when I want and read who I want and comment when I want etc etc. I have met some wonderful people in blogland and have many fond memories so I couldn't just give all that up. I did quit facebook though. Facebook yes, blogging - no. Anyway, I love your posts too much so don't you dare go giving it up! xx

Mylene said...

Very good progress on simple things.
I understand what you mean as i considered stopping with my blog recently too.
Hope you are having a good weekend.

Cute teapot, and I think you've made good progress on your WIP. Looks like with summer a lot of people have been busy with things other than stitching lately. Glad you decided to keep your blog. As with stitching, seems to be a bit harder to keep up with blogging too, but occationally is better than not at all. Enjoy summer/fall and being able to get out doors and such while it is still nice weather.

Janaina said...

Ohhh girl... I so understand what you mean about having no time for blooging. Tell me about it! =/
Anyways, even you cant do it as much as you want it, plz, dont give up on us. I surely missed you! =)

Mare said...

Oh dear, of course you were missed! At times I also have been bad about not blogging because life can get complicated with all of its demands. But stitching and my stitching friends are my escape. It is something that I do 100% for me. It refreshes me and helps me cope with the demands of the world. Your tea pot is FUN & funky, love it!

I hope you find lots of wonderful new stash! Since I am on a stashless diet I live vicariously through those purchases of friends so heat up those credit cards and have at it!

Hugs,
Mare
