I haven't been on here for a few days, so thought I'd better check in. Didn't get much stitching done this past week due to my work schedule, but I did work on my Bird RR for a little while last night. Got some housework to do this afternoon, and then I can stitch some more.

I can see that one of these days as soon as I can I would like to get a digital camera so I can post progress pictures on here. I can scan with my computer, but a camera would be much better.

I have only one small experience on anything other than Aida (several years ago, and did not finish it), and all the work I have seen on Teejay's site and others is inspiring me to want to try it. I have one very small project that I can work on to try it. I have all kinds of "stash", but a lot of it is kit form on aida, which I really need to get to work on one of these days. Also have several WIPs that are in dire need of attention.

I have enjoyed hearing from all who have left comments for me, and I am already addicted to gathering stash, and have been for years. I am glad to know that I am nowhere near alone in that!

It's A Beautiful Day

It's a beautiful day here, with the sun shining-a little cold but that's ok. I am enjoying a half-day off from work today, as I work a half-day this coming Saturday.

I found the chart I needed for the next leg of my RR and will get started on that this afternoon. I will scan a picture of it when it is done and post it here.

Thank you Kathy, Sally, and Ranae for leaving comments for me. I enjoyed receiving them very much.

I clicked on the Feedjit link on Teejay's blog and added that link here as well. It's pretty cool to see where in the world people are from, and that they were here.

I am new here

I am new at blogging. I visit a friend's blog and have visited others and decided that I would like to try it as well.
I have not worked on any stitching today, but I did get a RR in the mail yesterday, so that was progress. I am currently looking for a chart and getting the thread ready for the next leg of the RR, which is birds. I have taken part in several RR's over the last couple of years and enjoy them very much. After this one is finished I am thinking of taking a break from them for a little while. I have a friend and fellow stitcher who tells me that the stitch-a-longs are pretty neat to do and I am thinking about looking into doing that. I notice that the ones I have checked out do not use aida, so I will be trying out linen or evenweave, which will be something different for me. It will be good for me to expand my horizons and try new things.
