Blog hopping is a lot of work, I have tried to catch up on reading blogs and commenting and then replying to the comments on my blog. I like to let the people that take their time to comment on my blog know that I really appreciate them, but I am failing miserably. So to all of my lovely followers I thank you from the bottom of my heart, it brightens my day when I see comments and compliments on my stitching. I was having a little bit of a rant in one of my past post, but I am all better now. I’ve seen my doctor and am now trying to get my eating habits under control. I really do need someone to tell me how to stitch and walk at the same time so I can get in more exercise and not miss any stitching time, that would be great.
I completed the stitching on the 5th installment of “Around the World in 80 Stitches” that was a lot of fun a little easier this time there was no cutting, thank goodness. Once that was done I wanted to go back to the “Africa” piece by Joan Elliott but my other “African Women” piece was screaming FINISH ME! FINISH ME! So I decided that I would at least finish the stitching on it before anything else. I’m almost there and this is one of my original Wipocalyse (which is coming up again on Friday) pieces and I want to have a finish to share then so no picture right now on that. I have to remind myself not to add any more new starts and finish what I have on my wip list; it’s so hard to do.
I know he doesn’t read my blog but today is my one and only brother’s birthday, he is 70 years old today. When I spoke to him this afternoon he joked that it is kind of a shock to him to be 70, growing up the only people that old were smelly old grandparents. We agreed that this ill-conceived notion is no longer true, we are not smelly. So Happy Birthday to you, big brother!
Well here are the pictures of AW80S, it's getting a little hard to show it all clearly in one picture there is also a close-up .
Now it’s time again to prepare a sensible meal and then make some more little xxs.
