Long time, no see...

So, I see the last time I wrote a blog post was November 27th of LAST year!  Egads.  I am going to strive to remedy that going forth.

Between then and now I have done a lot of starting, but not a lot of completion.  I did complete Needle Delights Originals Aquamarine, shown below in all its framed glory.  Really loved stitching this one, but definitely missed cross stitch.

For the past month or so I have been working on Nora Corbett's Wisteria pixie, on plain Antique White Lugana.  I am nearing the finish line on this one and then I am going to start her Faerie Spring Fling, I think.  That is at least the plan. 

I have completely fallen in love with Polstitches fabric.  I purchased this piece of Secret Garden and just love it, which caused me to sign up for their Fabric of the Month and also purchase a few other pieces, which should be here by the end of this week. 

I also entered three pieces in the Woodlawn Needlework Exhibit this year and won a 2nd Place and Honorable Mention!!

And in May I attended the Salty Yarns Stitcher's Retreat in Ocean City, Maryland.  

Have a good week!
