I’m Back …


It’s been a long time … well … 9 months… since I have posted an update … and almost as long since I have done any stitching … Life and other things just got in the way..

So.. in an attempt to rejoin the blogging and stitching world I offer this update.

Let’s see… when last I posted, I was mid stream into the Crazy January Challenge of 2011 … I selected 15 projects, one begun on each of the 1st 15 days of January … Then, I was to complete them by December 31, 2011 … HA !! that didn’t happen ..

Currently I am working on the cute “Nickademus” by Raise the Roof Designs..  I am stitching a pair of these to be finished as ornaments to contribute to the Stitchers Corp.. for this year.  It is a great group of stitchers that stitch pairs of ornaments that are sent to deployed military personnel and their families in December.
