Still Here...

I know it's been a while. Nothing is wrong and I'm still stitching (albeit not as much as usual). I guess I just haven't felt much like blogging lately and I do feel a bit bad about that. Though honestly, what makes me feel worse is that I haven't been commenting on everyone elses blogs lately. I do a "catch up" on my favourite blogs every 2-4 weeks or so. But by that point, I have so many to catch up on that I find it difficult to leave everyone comments. :-( I'm truly sorry if I haven't stopped by your blog in ages.

Just to show that I've still been stitching a little, this is what I've completed lately.

Morning Birds by Plum Street Samplers
Stitched with NPI silks on Lakeside Linen 40-Count Navy Bean
Loved stitching this and absolutely adore the designer
(love her blog as much as I love her designs!)

Moon Garden by Blackbird Designs (Loose Feathers #8)
Stitched with GAST on R&R 18th Century Rook Linen
I couldn't get a decent photo or scan of this in any way! :-(

If anyone is still reading, thanks for dropping by. :)

Hi Concetta, good to see your stitching again, and what beautiful stitching it is! Particularly the BBD, so pretty!

Oh what lovely finishes!! I also have a difficult time getting good pictures of light floss on dark fabrics. It seems to confuse my camera. LOL.

Don't worry about blogging or commenting - it's not an obligation! :)

Sharon said...

Hi Tina, they are both gorgeous! I love the fabric Moon Garden is stitched on.

Paulette said...

Oh goodness, I just had to leave a comment bc you made my day! Your finishes are both lovely, and one of these days I'm going to stitch Moon Garden - yours is stunning!

lol I know what you mean. I finally managed to catch up on bloglines reader list last night and this morning there are 39 new posts. I usually try to catch up in the morning while I sit and have my coffee otherwise it would get beyond me.

Both pretty finishes but i like the top one best - the colour is just so right for that design.

Karoline said...

They're both gorgeous, congratulations

Siobhan said...

Wow Tina, they're both fabulous! I love Moon Garden, though I kept singing that song by James Taylor, "I'm being followed by a moon shadow..." the entire time I sang it. I must stitch Morning Birds. We have a small wooded areas below our garden and the birds are so loud in the morning that I always think of that design. Your stitching is wonderful!

As for the commenting and blogging, it's meant to be fun, it's not an obligation. I am new to the whole thing but don't sit and watch who comments & who doesn't, and those who do aren't worth the effort it'd take to leave a comment. I say go with what works for you, comment when you can, blog when you want to--because we always want to see what you're up to! ;)

Always nice to see a post from you Tina, both your pieces are gorgeous.

I don't post regularly either, it's hard to fit everything in sometimes isn't it? And then sometimes I just can't think what to say!

Hope you're getting a hint of Spring up in Scotland?

Melissa said...

Both finishes are gorgeous and now I want to do them both! Congrats!

CindyMae said...

Of course we are still reading!!! Love both pieces. They are both great and you done a fantastic job stitching them both!

Christine said...

Both projects look great, Tina!!

Karen said...

They look great, I especially like Morning Birds. I haven't been stitching at all lately, and my blogging has suffered as well. I find I pay more attention to my Facebook page than my blog lately.

Carolyn said...

Wow Tina! Beautiful stitching on both, but I MUST HAVE the Plum Street Sampler one as I love birds. Thanks for the enabling. I'm off to order it now. LOL


Kelvin said...
