This is just a test!

I took one of those tests, and wanted to share it here.  Let’s see if I’m successful ?!?

You Belong in Fall

Intelligent, introspective, and quite expressive at times…
You appreciate the changes in color, climate, and mood that fall brings
Whether you’re carving wacky pumpkins or taking long drives, autumn is a favorite time of year for you

What Season Are You?

It worked!  First time around, no, but once I copied it all under code, viola!  I must keep repeating to myself ‘try, try again’.  I love the fact that I’m ‘Fall’ – that would have been my pick.


It’s been awhile!

I must be one of the most inconsistent blogger around! Yes, Jill, you are right, I need to post at least weekly! I love reading everyone’s blogs, and am constantly finding new ones to bookmark.

It’s the middle of March already – where did that time go? My current stitching projects are quite numerous:

Finishing up a Quaker RR (one more mailing round to go)
Just mailed out the first round of an Ornament RR
Will be mailing my new DT RR out tomorrow

There are several exchanges on the horizon. I love sending packages out and receiving them! It’s great to see what others stitch and how they interpret the given theme. I keep all my exchanges in areas around my stitching spot, serving as a wonderful visual symbol of my love for this needleart. Now, if I could just get some of my finished pieces framed!

Here is a picture of my part in my DT RR (not complete, I still have a house to finish and an owl to add):

I am so looking forward to my Quaker RR coming home – one more stitcher and it will be mine to treasure. I chose a monochromatic theme using Vikki Clayton’s Wenge. No pictures to share at this time, I’ll make sure to post one when it makes it back to me. I think my next Quaker will be either red or green – there’s always room for more Quakers!

I got the chance to meet with some special stitching friends yesterday, and to meet Dani from Ottawa ( who has been down visiting these southwestern states! Our international community amazes me. What a blessing the internet has been bringing us in touch with so many wonderful people!

My next post will show all my recent exchanges I’ve received and sent, as I’ve been very remiss in acknowledging these in picture.

Trying something new

I’m trying a new blog!  I don’t know how things will work here, there are many techniques to learn.  I’ve struggled just a bit with Blogger, and wanted a change.  Next challenge, importing my blog from Blogger over here!
