Welcome To My Corner Of The Cross Stitching World!

I love cross stitch, chocolate, tea, exercise and my heating pad under a pile of blankets. I am a little ADD and extremely busy with life so don't always post as I should. I usually only update with new stitching accomplishments but, may try to blog a little more in the near future. HOWEVER, if you are here visiting me, I hope I can make you smile and bring joy to your life even for a brief second.

After all, isn't life a bunch of brief seconds running after each other to weave the story of our life?

Fair & Square Summer Round and Round 14 Exchanges Received

Above is the Summer Round from Karen R. in Australia.
Below is Round 14 from Pokua in Australia.

I love both of them. You can go to the Fair & Square Blog to read my comments about these 2 pieces. I really like doing exchanges.

Whew, Finally Home

Got back in from Florida/Bahamas last night. Glad we came back then. Needed today to regroup (unpack, wash clothes, grocery shop, etc.) I am not looking forward to going back to work tom.

I will discuss my trip a little further later this week. Today, I want to post my stitching updates.

To begin with: This is from Aury -Tiny Treasures Exchange Floss Ring. I love it. Go to that blog and read my response.

Florida Bound

Suitcase is packed. Everything is taken care of around the house. Just going to double-check the most important item I am taking, my stitching. I can stitch riding in a car so, I hope to get a lot accomplished. I am taking my Pals stitching exchange piece and my ornament to make for the month of August (per my new years resolution). Pray for us to have a safe trip and plenty of good family bonding. Will post on my return.

Needy People

Sometimes working with the public can drain you. I had a few "needy" people today that gave me a headache. Oh well, after a quick shower, I am going to take Faye Raye's advice and kit me up some projects for Florida. I have finally decided what I am going to stitch/finish for the Pals stitching exchange; something I have never done before and am excited to try it. shhh wait till October for the convention. (faye, if you are reading this, i need your email and/or your blog address-got a question for you)

Desperately Wanting Stitching Time

Between work and training for the mud run, I have not had much time to stitch. Boy, can I tell. I feel a little high strung and it sure calms me down. I have several projects I would like to complete this month but with vacation in Florida next week, stitching will be limited to the car trip down and back (maybe at night on the ship and in hotel room). I plan to pick out the projects tomorrow night. Too tired to feel creative tonight.

Summer Round 2009 Fair & Square Exchange

I thought this design was so cute and Karen R. in Australia has informed me, she really likes it. Tea is huge here in the southeastern United States. I am glad she enjoys as well. Her summer is just beginning over there. So cheers to you Karen.
