There have been few postings from me lately, and I apologize. At least we've had Jake to keep us amused.
This has been a not-so-happy summer for me. I am wildly busy at work, with complex projects that require a lot of focus; I've put in a lot of late nights this past 2 months. This economy stinks, and it is unsettling not to see improvement on the horizon. I would not say I am an optimist, but I do think I have a bit of Scarlet O'Hara in me, often saying, "tomorrow is another day," with the implied hope that it will be better. It's getting harder & harder to say that, I'm finding. The weather has been exhausting too. Also because of the economy, I think, everyone is a little bit cranky & testy & impatient, which just makes everything a bit harder.
I haven't had time or energy to stitch much, and in fact am feeling a little bit overwhelmed by my stash as well. Just about everything I've worked on this past year has been large sized. When I do sit down to stitch, I enjoy it just as much as ever, but there just aren't enough hours.
On the plus side I still love my nook. :) While I may be too tired to stitch I am not too tired to read.
Last night I finished the baby buggy canvas that Linda photographed for you over the weekend. I will try to drop it off for finishing this week. It was a Princess & Me canvas, which are fun to stitch, although their stitch guides are......well, see my references above about cranky and testy & impatient. I did enjoy working the canvas up, and look forward to giving it as a gift this Christmas.
Now, I will return to Ponza's rocks. This is the last of the rocks canvases; I am hopeful to finish the rocks in the next 2 weeks, and then go on to the Ponza door canvas. I will post some progress this weekend---I will really try!!
