I had a wonderful time on Saturday - I met with my stitching group and was able to stitch UNINTERUPTED from about 10 am to about 3:30 in the afternoon. BLiss! I worked a bit on Alla Turka and some on Growth rings. The little sampler has fallen by the way side for now, but when I'm done with June's portion of Alla Turka, I'll pick it back up. Here's an updated pic of Alla Turka with the new color accent added in. It really pops! I was so anxious that this color choice might melt into the background because the pinks are so similar, but it doesn't at all. The picture doesn't really do it justice, the brown is a rich chocolaty brown and the rosey pink is perfect with the fabric. What do you think?
I am a Mom, a growing, struggling and damn good mom of 4 but that's not all I am. You know what I mean - There are layers to me - Yes I'm a Stay at Home Mom, used to be a working mom, I am also an artist, a wife, a little funny, a bit of a slob who loves things neat and organized (is that an oxymoron?) I am an overweight and philisophical woman with ideas, passions and dreams. My job right now is to raise my kids to be happy healthy and productive members of society, save money and loose weight while doing it, and of course, not loose my mind at the same time. :) This blog is about all that and whatever else I am in the mood to talk about.
