Awards, pictures, and a new start
and then I received the
from Noreen and Veronica
I wanted to tell these ladies thank you so much for the awards. I love reading blogs of others, but am constantly surprised that people would enjoy reading mine. Comments are always so welcome, and an award is as they say icing on the cake. However, I really can't narrow down the blogs I read to just a couple, as I love following all your blogs. And, I've noticed most of you have already received one if not both of these awards already. So I hope I won't upset anyone if I don't pass these on to any specific blogs, I want to tell you I'm awarding these to all the blogs in my blog line, as well as those blogs I visit regularly and haven't gotten around to adding yet, and if you haven't received one so far, please consider one awarded to you and post it on your blog.
I've also been experimenting with my Camera. I got an adorable little Blue Fujifilm FinePix Z10fdIsn't it adorable? I still am learning what I'm doing. For example I took quite a few pictures, then couldn't figure out why I couldn't see them. I tried everything. Then...I went back to the directions. Seems that you press once to focus and a second time to actually take the picture. So, looks like I got lots of practice focusing, LOL. Anyway, through trial and error (mainly error so far) I have the following pictures to present.
First off is my Stitch collection, although I forgot to put the Stitch videos in the grouping. The top Stitch is the Stitch on my sweatshirt that I got as a birthday present from my DSIL Kim. Then I have my big Stitch and three smaller Stitches. The tiny Stitch on big Stitch's head is actually a decoration. However, he actually hangs on the side of my stitching basket. Aren't they cute, and they are all such a lovely blue, do you see a pattern here. :) I also have a Tigger collection, hmm guess I'm a kid a heart do you think?
Next up is my newest start Joyful Summer by Country Cottage Needleworks. I'm doing it on 28 ct Little Boy Blue Linen with a combination of Crescent Colours and DMC.
This is what it will look like done Isn't it an awesome piece? I so love the colors, so bright, and fun, and.....blue :)
Finally I'll leave you with a picture of my invisible cat, Isis Even though she's been living with me a year now (she's actually my DD's cat) she still is such a skittish cat that many times you don't even see her. If she wants attention, it is always on her timetable, don't even try to pick her up. However, she can be a real snuggler on occasion, especially at around 3 in the morning when she's awake and thinks that she'd love to have her head rubbed, so she curls up on my head purring and licking my ear or eyelids. Boy, talk about waking up quick. Needless to say she can't quite figure out why I'm not honored that she is going to let me pet her and looks totally insulted if I push her away so I can roll over and go back to sleep.
Hope you're all having a good week, and this weekend I'll post my finish of My Needle and My Floss. Yup it's done, and I love it.
