Hi, Friends. It’s been such a long time and I’m sorry I haven’t been around much.
I took a break in July and hoped to be blogging again in August. All because I had to apply for my job. Don’t ask me why I’m applying for a job that I’ve been doing for a year now! I sort of lost control of my life after I handed in my application and I couldn’t concentrate on anything else. I was interviewed in mid-August. Did I ever tell you how much I hate interviews? Thankfully I came out of it in one piece. Don’t know the outcome yet, though.
I’ve also been tending to my roses in preparation for spring. This year we’re having very early signs of spring – all the roses were in bud at the end of July when I pruned and fed them and other plants which usually flower in late September have started to bloom already :surprise:
I’d like to introduce my next major project for the Weekly SAL group after the completion of Drawn Thread’s Marriage of the Minds. Here’s progress with Sara Hathorne.
I’m stitching it as prescribed with DMC threads on 32 count Antique Tan linen from Zweigart. It’s coming along so well and I’m loving it.
By the way, I sent Marriage of the Minds to my framer for a professional finish. Picked it up yesterday and I’m speechless. Will show you when I’ve taken some decent shots of it.
Happy Stitching 😉
