First, welcome to all my new followers. My followers gadget doesn't seem to be working so I didn't even notice until I went into the dashboard that I had over 50! I appreciate your taking the time to read the drivel that I tend to post.
Second, I forget that not everyone reading hangs around with me and my mixed-up, confused idiomatic expressions. The galloping horse test is: Can a person riding by on a galloping horse see the difference?
And last but not least, here is what I've been doing the last few days.
Paper crafting. I make these for the Niblings (brothers and sisters are siblings so nieces and nephews are niblings - I'm fairly sure that came from Jo's blog, but if not let me know where I read it and I'll give you credit) on their 18th birthdays. The directions can be found at Stubby Stampers.
Here it is closed:
We put money in three of the boxes and a small card in the fourth.
Stitching. I'm sure you'll be shocked to read that I worked on Hawaiian. I am very pleased with my progress. I may finish the stitching on part 1 next weekend I'll have close to another full day of speciality stitches and beading for a full part 1 finish.
And finally, Birds of a Feather:
All the housework is done, the oven is cleaning I LOVE the self-cleaning feature on my oven, if I never spend another day with my head inside an oven trying to clean it, it will be too soon!! and I have several hours of uninterrupted time for stitching what a great way to end a long weekend.
