I'm BBBAAACCCKKK!!!

So - it has been a ridiculously long time since I've posted in here.  Part of it was just being busy, and part of it was that I had lost my stitching mojo for a while.  But - I seem to have it back!  (And, by the way, thank you to those who were concerned that I hadn't posted for a while - it does make you feel good when people "miss" you!).

Anyway - when I resurrected my stitching mojo, I stitched a little bit more on my Vegas picture - but I'm not posting a picture until I finish the page I'm on.  But as a reward for finishing a row of blocks, I started a new project!  (That's a way to jump start mojo right - start something new!).

The something new I started is a Lizzie Kate - always a fun easy stitch.  I found it when I organized my stash over New Years - I knew I had the pattern, but I didn't realize that the pattern came with the fabric and the threads - so no work to kit it up!

The pattern is a 2008 Special Edition called "Christmas is Forever".  Here is my progress so far:



And here is the sideways picture of what it will look like what it's finished!  LOL  (I can't figure out how to rotate the picture on here, but you get the general idea.




As is always the case with a Lizzie Kate pattern, it's been a fun stitch so far.

My Southern California Stitchers group had a LOVELY get together yesterday.  Six of us descended on one the home of a very generous group member, and settled in for about 6 hours of stitching, talking, laughing...and oh yeah, lunch!  We had a great time, and that's where I got a lot of time in on this project.

I'm hoping to get back into a rhythm of rotating my projects AND updating my blog!  Wish me luck (I think I vow to be a better "blogger" every year!  LOL)
