Whole lot of stumbling and tuning going on

Thank you to everyone that drops by and reads my posts.  I am still a bit mystified about the whole "blog thing" but I am certainly glad I took the plunge and started writing. 

I almost completely lost myself in iTunes and StumbleUpon last weekend.  I had wonderful plans to start Chatelaine's Serengeti and make progress on Carriage House Sampling's Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow. instead I listened to lots of music and found some really amazing ideas for home decorating, gardening, crafting and food.  It was almost as relaxing as stitching and I really don't feel too bad about not meeting my weekend stitching goals.

Not that I totally flaked on the stitching, here is where Autumn was when I put it on the frame Friday evening:

And here's where it is as of tonight:

The colors in the "before" photo are much closer to true.  Despite my apparent indifference to this piece, I really am enjoying the stitching and the big bite mark is finally filled in.

Blue Ribbon Designs' Countdown to Christmas is going on the frame for this weekend.  I am still working my way through Midsomer Murders, Queen's Another One Bites the Dust has started running through my head every time the music changes to a minor key that's a dead giveaway (pun intended) that someone is going to die, but I saw that Sherlock Season 2 will be on Masterpiece this Sunday, so some competition is in the future a development I am sure you are all grateful for.

Great progress, I love a nice Before and After picture!

I'm glad you're enjoying the blogging. For me, it's one of the best thing I've done.
