Some Musings

I discovered a new forum the other day and as a result I am participating in 4 exchanges. The forum is Stitching Bloggers. I am participating in the Halloween exchange, the Redwork exchange, the Autumn/Fall exchange and the Christmas ornament exchange. I am really excited about them and I have everything all picked out. I am going to stitch a Lizzie*Kate snippet for Halloween, a French design for the Redwork exchange and a section of Fran Russell's Autumn sampler that was in a back issue of SANQ. And, I know how I am going to finish all of them too!

Today, I mailed the Quaker RR piece to Mercedes, and the Strawberry pattern to Karen in England. I will begin to stitch Sherry's sampler now. Not sure which motifs or medallions I am going to work on her sampler. Cindy's sampler is beautiful. I haven't seen a picture of mine yet for this round. I am anxious to see it.

This weekend, I want to return to stitching on Time & Seasons Sampler. I love the colors. And I am going to finish up the Lizzie*Kate Autumn Boxer too. I don't know how much I will get stitched though, Mike has the weekend booked with his buddies to come over on Saturday night for a video game party and on Sunday, a paintball party. David and I are going to the movies on Saturday night.

Weight Watchers wasn't really great last night, I gained a pound that I lost the previous week. Blech! Gotta get with the program! Or better yet, I gotta stick to the program....

Oh well, tonight I think I am going to take some pics (I keep promising to do that) of my stitching so that all can see. No one has commented on my blog so I am not sure if anyone is even reading it. But I am having fun writing it!

I'm reading it! I've added everyone from the Stitching bloggers exchange blog list to my blog reading list. I love pictures too! It's pretty exciting to be doing the exchanges - I've been having a ball looking over my stash trying to decide what to stitch.
