It's been good weather for reading (I'm revisiting 1930's London with Lord Peter Wimsey at the moment) and for stitching. Just have to finish attaching some beads and I should have another ornament front finished soon.

Didn't find the poem I was looking for, but came across one that caught my attention while I was looking. Poet is Edwin Arlington Robinson, 1869 - 1935

Goodness, it's been almost 3 months since I last posted and I have no idea where the time has gone. Mind you, December was pretty much taken up by preparing for, enjoying and recovering from Christmas and the start of 2008 has been used up trying to recover from a cold. Don't know if it's because I'm getting older or because cold bugs are getting stronger, but they sure seem to last a whole lot longer than they used to.
Was busy stitching until the cold struck and got a few more ornaments stitched and ready to be finished off so they can be hung. Most of them can be seen at
This picture I turned into a pillow for a good friend - finished sewing the pillow the night of the 23rd and mailed it on the 24th!! Not what I had planned at all, but she got it by the end of Christmas week, so it didn't turn out so bad. If I decide to stitch gifts again this year, I MUST start earlier! Famous last words . . . . .
