More Stitching!

At the doctor's office yesterday I got some more stitching done while I was waiting. So here is a new update picture.

Quaker Welcome by The Stitcherhood

Dusty, I am hoping Bridgette will want to stitch when she gets older. I'm trying to help that happen by letting her help me stitch sometimes. I put the needle in and she pulls it through. She has a blast doing it. I have some pictures of her helping me stitch her birth announcement, Crescent Dreams by Miribilia in 2009. She also helped me with Blackwork Winter by Tam's Creations so I put her initials as well as my own within the sampler as stitchers. Here are some of the pics, you can see the rest here.

Stitching At Last and a Question

I did some stitching Sunday night. I worked on Quaker Welcome by The Stitcherhood. Here are some pictures.

Quaker Welcome, I added the bits on the right

I would have gotten more stitching done but I had a cute little helper. My niece kept wanting to help me stitch, which is cute but it does not amount to much actual help. LOL

But I did manage to stitch finally! YAY!

Now I have a question. I do read every comment that comes through on my blog but I am never sure how to respond to them. I have responded by posting reply comments in the comment section, but I'm not sure anyone sees them. Would it be better to reply using email as other bloggers do, or posts that reply to comments, or just comment on my own posts in reply? I don't want to annoy people by sending unwanted email thanking them for reading and commenting on my ramblings, but I also don't want people to think I do not read them or appreciate them (because I definitely do both!). So please, let me know what you think is the best way to reply to comments.

Thank You and Still Alive

Thank you all for your condolences and caring comments on the post back in early December about Pharoah. I really appreciated every one of them. His loss has affected me more than I expected the loss of an animal to do. I've been saddened by it and felt "off" since then. I haven't stitched much at all. I did a few stitches here and there but not enough on any piece to take pictures. That is why there haven't been any new posts to this blog.

I spent 3 weeks of January sick as a dog, which didn't help my mood much. I finally got over the sickness only to land in bed for the last couple of days due to increased pain. We've had wet weather and that always makes me hurt more. Though I did finally catch up with all the blog posts I hadn't read yet. I don't comment very often but I do read them. Now that I am caught up I hope to be able to start commenting more often.

I know I missed my blogoversary (it was in October) but I am hoping to be able to do a giveaway for it within the next week. So keep your eyes peeled for that!

I did do a little bit of stitching today and will be doing some more tonight before bed, so hopefully I will have some progress that I can post a picture of tomorrow.

Again, thank you all for your support and concern. I really do appreciate it!
