Well its been awhile but I don't think my audience will complain too much! ;) I've been really busy with life lately I would loose my head if it wasn't attached. So my husband has since moved out and is living with his best friend who happens to be going through a nasty divorce. If it comes to that with Dallas, I think we'll be able to come to terms without any significant damage. I still love my husband dearly, I just don't think we're compatible in the personal relationship sense....if you follow me.

On another somewhat sour note I still haven't received the towels I'm waiting for from the Tea Towel Tour from craftster. Its been nearly a month I think. I fear the worst. :(

Here's the last towel I finished which was Beetastics. I managed to fit 13 stitches in and the majority I learned for the first time. They weren't too bad but I definitely need more practice.

Speaking of the wonderful Beetastic, you should go drop her a line at her blog Sweet Bee as she's celebrating her one year anniversary as a blogger and she's even giving away a sweet bird towel she hand emrboidered and some other goodies.

Since I've had a bit of downtime without the towels to work on I've finished the kitten cross-stitch I've been working on so I'll take pics of that and have it ready for next time. Now I'm attempting to finish a butterfly cross-stitch I've been wanting to give to my mother for mothers day for a couple years now. I should have it done this time around (fingers crossed!).

I've been waiting for to post again ever since I read that you love to pick scabs. I do too but would never admit that to anyone. I'm glad you've blogged again but I'm sorry to hear about your husband. I hope you guys can work it out.

Your embroidery is pretty! That leaf on the botton left, is that couching? I love how that looks.

Its actually called the Vandyke stitch. And thank you for reading... I didn't think I had more than a one person audience! SWEEEET! ;)

I'm going to look that one up. Thanks for telling me what it is! And, you probably have more readers than you know. :)
