(if that even makes sense). This pretty much sums up my existence at this point. Things be a bit hectic. Between the kids' school stuff, work (inconvenient and often boring but unfortunately necessary), volunteer activites, and a house that needs cleaning no matter how I try to ignore the problem, there's the fact that I've signed up for a zillion exchanges and need to stitch for my BF's birthday, DD's birthday and the school's annual fundraising auction. It's so bad I actually dragged out a calendar and made a stitching schedule. My blogging and blog-reading and commenting have definitely gone by the wayside!
I have a (very few) things to show. I did do a lot of stitching during vacation but I think many of those finishes will end up being exchange pieces, so I won't show them here at this point. I didn't go too crazy at my favorite cross stitch shop in Reading (about two minutes after we walked in the door DS asked when we were leaving) but I did pick up a few BBD patterns--one of which was the Peacock Pinkeep above-- and indulged in some Belle Soie for the first time (which I love). I also finished a few WIP's including this little Goode Huswife quaker.
I hope to have some exchanges to show soon. I had to stitch a replacement piece for Mayte for the BBD exchange since this went missing, much to my distress (although, according to the post office records, it was delivered, Mayte never received it--she lives in an apartment complex and I am afraid someone might have stolen it). I sent the replacement piece with signature confirmation required, but she never received the notice (although, again, according to the P.O., a notice was left). I hope the second turns up since I don't know if I can produce a third!
Thanks all for letting me rant. I promise the next post will have more stitching and less complaining : ) At least the weather's cooled off...and only a little over a month until Halloween!!
