Hello... remember me???
I'm not entirely sure what happened there... but man it's been a long, long time since my last post, hasn't it?
I've had so many wonderful messages from my readers - expressing both concern and encouragement - and I really, really, REALLY appreciate it. As a blogger... you sometimes wonder whether or not there is anyone out in cyberspace actually reading what you write. It totally cheered me up to hear that I was missed!
I didn't really plan to drop off the radar. It just kind of happened.
You know the way one thing snowballs into the next? And before you know it... it all turns into something huge. Well, that's pretty much what happened...
Lots of significant life changes - happening one after the next - and not leaving much time for crafting or blogging.
So, I guess it's been a good six weeks or more since we last spoke...
You would think that I would have accomplished so much craft in that time - but it's not the case. I've barely picked up my yarn at all.
Something which I have been working on, is cross stitch embroidery. Now, I have to confess that I have been working with NEW MATERIALS!!! I was given some birthday money a little while back, and I decided to purchase some embroidery kits.
I'm really loving this one: it's called ALL YOUR FRIENDS, and has been designed by DIANE ARTHURS... click here to see what the finished piece will look like.
And here is my progress so far:
Actually... I've just realised that I did do the TINIEST bit of recycling for this project! I recycled an old birthay card to use as my thread card. Just punched holes in it, sorted my threads into each hole, and then scribbled the symbol used in the graph chart for each colour.
So I wasn't completely evil!!!
