Life's a Stitch

Finished my tiny pincushion today and it's all wrapped up and ready to go out in the mail tomorrow. :) Hope it gets where it's going in time.

Baby steps

Well, I'm sure that all six of you who read my blog :D will be delighted to know that I am back working on something again. I'm actually only finishing a previously-stitched project as a small pincushion, so nothing major, but hey, that counts, right? It needs to go out in the mail for someone's birthday soon, so I better get crackin'!

Truth be told

I haven't stitched a single stitch for over a month, and thus have barely updated here. Mostly I'd been preparing for my recent Chicago trip and have had other concerns on my mind unconducive to pondering linen and floss. And on the occasions when my thoughts did turn to stitching my hands were not cooperating.

I hope I do better now that it is September.

Art Institute of Chicago

While I was on vacation in Chicago last week I paid a brief visit to the Art Institute. Although I didn't have much time to wander I did snap a few pics of some of the highlights and other things I found interesting. I hope to go back some day and spend far more time exploring the Windy City. :)
