A sampling of my designs as well as personal stitching, and life in general.

 Amy of Thread in Hand has died and her obit, written by her son, can be found here.


Her husband was kind enough to think of the stitchers who followed her blog to notify us via the blog.

Bermuda Reef

 Bermuda Reef is a canvas class I am taking from Kathy Rees.  As usual, I love the piece (as I do most of Kathy's pieces, especially the classes).

Here is my progress so far:

As usual (and not intentionally) 
I just kept on going after the first lesson
the top medium triangle was the first lesson.

I really like how it is coming along.
Usually I don't pay much attention to my backs
but I thought that this looked pretty good.

Sorry for all the shadows showing up.

In the non-stitching area of life
My trip to Washington DC was great.
though I nearly froze to death.
I had accidently packed a pair of warm tight instead of stockings
I was so glad.  Though I didn't take any really casual shoes
I took a pair of winter socks which I ended up wearing to bed.
I was really tired by the end of the week and glad to be back home again.

I still need a vacation
the kind without any work.
