Quick Little Update

I seem to be in a funk lately; just not good about posting on my blog in a regular fashion. (I haven't been responding to email all that quickly either - sorry!) Those of you who have been around awhile know that I go through this every so often. Life just gets busy and there isn't time for the computer...or blogging. I'd rather spend any extra time I have stitching.

I've been working on an LHN project lately. Remember our little stitching group that gets together in August for a mini-retreat? We worked on a project together last year and decided to do one again this year. This year's project is these six blocks from LHN (I'm too lazy to pull the patterns out right now, but I think they were in the Dear Diary series.)

We're each stitching one of each square and then putting our initials in the top corners. In August we will swap squares so that we have one from each person. We are then planning to do a "cube" finish...we'll see how that turns out. Now there is a little twist to this project, but I think you will have to wait until August to see what it is! :)









I've also been working on some hardanger doilies. I am taking a trip in July and I need to bring gifts with me. These little pretties don't take up much space in the suitcase!



Last night I pulled out Happy Hearts again. I think that if I put my mind to it, I could finish that sampler by the end of May...we'll see.

Hope you are well in your little corner of the world wherever that might be. Happy stitching and thanks for stopping by!

The hardanger doilies are just lovely and the Dear Diary series is very nice too! Can't wait to see everyone's finishes on them.

Maybe now that the sun is shining you'll get your groove back.

Posting is just something we do for fun, even if it does get to be irregular now and then. It's always great to hear from you. :D

Your stitching and doilies are FABULOUS!

Sometimes it's nice to just enjoy life and stitch and not worry so much with the computer. Your projects are beautiful!

Gabi said...

Lovely squares. It will look great as cube. And what a lovely idea to swatch squares.

I'm in one of those blogging funks myself right now. I'm so far behind in my reading but life has just been too full lately.

I thinks it's wonderful that you all get together and stitch something like this each year. Those squares will look great finished as a cube.

I love your LHN squares, they will work up into beautiful cubes!!

The Dear Diary series looks great, and a cool idea to swap and make them into a cube.
I love your hardanger doilies, I've tried hardanger a couple of times but can't imagine ever being good enough to make something like that lol.
