I have been looking through previous blog post and you may have started to wonder if I stitch any more???
Well there have been some things diverting my attention... Jean and Candi have messed up my stitching routine by introducing me to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. Oh my gosh what great books and once you start one you can't put it down, even Danny was complaining that he can't go to sleep with the light on. I tried to explain I was just going to read one more page. I'm on book 3 so I guess I can get back in to my regular routine soon.
However I have not completely abandon stitching I'm working on some over one for a friend. You see she started this awesome Ann Smith sampler from Scarlet Letter and had it almost done... but she does not like over one stitching, so she asked me if I would like to work on it. I said oh sure, before I checked out the sampler and little did I know that there is lots of over one. I had been dragging my feet thinking what have I done. She would ask me how it was coming, I would say I had put in a few stitches, but I"m mainly working on patterns for market, anything but all that over one. Well I got to feeling guilty so I pulled it out and made myself start in earnest. Maybe because I had some other projects that I was not looking forward to I began stitching non stop on her sampler, and I'm loving it (I just hope that I will be able to part with it when it is done). I will get right back at it when I finish this last book.
The whole sampler so far
