I PROMISE I will be more 'newsy' later this week, but for now, suffice to say, we are fine after such a nature-filled week! First the earthquake and aftershock, then the hurricane. But no damages and have power, so am blessed beyond thinking!

I have a very dear friend who is going through really really rough times right now, and I am so closely wrapped in them, I am wiped nearly every day! It seems to be a time of health issues, because two other of my closest friends have been going thru 'stuff' of their own or of a spouse. (I am praying all the time for healing!!)But I will really try to get back to blogging this week, as I have LOTS to report. Be prepared for a long post! Or two!

Thanks for hanging in with me,

Hugs, Maggee

Two finishes

I have been away too long!! But been busy stitching whenever I can. So, without further ramblings, here are two finishes I CAN show you (still doing exchange pieces too!): Peace, Love and a Cure by Lizzie Kate, done on 32-count linen with a smattering of the called-for threads and other DMC threads. I think I will be making this into a flatfold. Been wanting to try that finish! Finished my version of the ABCD Sampler by La-D-Da, the Traveling Pattern ! I cannot send it out just yet, as I do not have the journal that goes with it. I used a piece of 32-count Rue Green linen, and HDF Deep Purple (two different dye lots)and GAST Cranberry. I like the way it looks. It will be framed--eventually!

Working away on A New Day--I am about half done the first one! And getting ready to start a few new ones, like a LK for Mondays and maybe a fall piece and a Christmas ornie or two! So much to do, so much to do!!
