Things that Go BUMP in my Mind

Knitting, stitching, reading, gardening, cooking--I have no time for any of it.

Friday, January 14, 2005


I haven't blogged in so long that Blogger had logged me out, which it almost never does. Have no doubt, fearless readers, I will return. It's just that right now I am (a) snowed under at work, and (b) sick like a big dog. Owen got a nasty cold and kindly passed it on to me, and I have apparently passed it on to Chuck, and probably Andy as well. Gonna be a fun weekend.

I'm overdue for a state of the stitching, so here's a brief roundup. I finished the Chatelaine dragonfly freebie and the Mirabilia cherub (which was a Xmas present for my parents, and they loved it). I had also intended to finishe the L&L angel, but I didn't even pick up a needle on that one. I did, however, do some stash organization. Can I just tell you that I love those DMC stitch bows? They're so much easier than winding bobbins.

I've never done "guilt-free January", but I'm gonna this year because my secret stitcher got me a design I've been wanting to stitch for ages. So I'll start it, but I don't know when I'll finish it--I want to do a sampler for my best friend's wedding in May (or maybe June, who knows? They haven't exactly set a date yet) and something for my siter- and brother-in-law, who are expecting their third (!) child in July. And oh yeah, there's that little think about making a Christmas stocking for Owen sometime before he goes off to college ...
