Over the past couple of months, I've had two people contact me after seeing pieces I've stitched here on my lil' ol' blog, asking for help. I cannot even begin to tell you how much that means to me. I've been neglecting my blog so much this past year, yet somehow still inspiring people to stitch their hearts out.
That said, I've made a promise to myself that I'd be better about posting more regularly. I've even written it in my planner, so you know it's serious business. I lost my stitching mojo there for a while, but I think I got it back. At least, for now. So, fingers crossed it hangs around for a while so I can share some of the fun things I'm working on.
Even with a bit of a lack of stitching mojo, I still managed to finish an ornament. Little House Needleworks always has the cutest ornaments, and this one is no exception.
And, hello! BOOKS! How could I pass up an ornament that's of a bookstore?!
I need to make sure I do the finishing work on this one so I can put it on the tree that I promised myself I'd put up this Christmas. I haven't had a Christmas tree in 3-4 years, and I miss it.
Oh, and what are you guys reading right now? I've hit a couple duds so far this year, but I read The Nix, which was ok, The Bear and The Nightingale, which I really liked, In a Dark, Dark Wood, which was unfortunately very predictable, and I'm currently reading The Last Days of Night, which is about the patent lawsuit between Edison and Westinghouse back in the late 1800's. So far, I'm loving it. I have nine books on hold at the library for my nook, so hopefully they'll keep me busy over the next couple months!
