The Abbey-Progress!


For the most part I have been working on the right hand side on all those beautiful clouds! I love all those violets/grey-violets! So pretty! I haven't been stitching too much, been doing other things. I found two new types of computer games I really enjoy and I have bought about 6-7 new ones and have been spending all my time with them! My husband is a die hard gamer, he's the stay up all night swilling Mt.Dew kind of gamer, and I have never been THAT into games, I'm not into the shoot em up kinda things he likes, killing all things from people to aliens to zombie kinda thing, but I have found HOGS (Hidden object/mystery) games, and Time management games (where you are given so much time to complete a certain number of tasks) and I am addicted! So have been spending much more time in front of the computer with these silly (but addictively fun) games. And not as much time with my stitching...I'm sure this obsession will run it's course and I will soon be back to my stitching regularly, but lately I've been a bit distracted...

I think the fact that I've not been stitching as much has also kept me from blogging....after all, what am I supposed to blog about if I have no progress?
Well, thank you all for stopping by and saying hello! And I am trying to make the rounds and say hello to you all in your comment boxes, which my googlereader overfloweth, so I am slowly getting through it all, and there is ALOT of gorgeous stitching going on out there!

Joyful Stitching!!

Hi Lana. Thanks for dropping in & commenting on my blog.
I really love this house you are doing. Keep at it because stitch by stitch you are getting nearer the finish line of a future family treasure. xoxo

Computer games sure can be deadly! Your WIP is just lovely!

Just read your post over at Daffycat's about missing your Dal. I can totally relate! We lost our Haley four years ago. Even though we now have Miss Shelby, I still get teary eyed for Miss Haley and still remember her last day like it was yesterday. Glad to "meet" another who's had her heart stolen by a Dal!

Thank you, Inspired Stitcher!! I DO miss that dog so much!! He was so sweet! I can still see him running around the yard while us kids chased him,trying to get back the clothes he pulled off my mom's washline! LOL!!! Good memories! I also had a German Shepherd, she's still alive, but is living with my parents, not with us.I still miss her too!

I love the clouds/sky in the background of this one. I am the same as you with getting involved in other things (games/a good book/a new project) and getting distracted from my stitching.

It looks amazing with the cloud colors. I am a Sims2 and Sims3 addict. I will play for months and then not touch it again. I should just play in the evening on Fridays and Saturdays. I used to stay up til 2 am.

Lana said...

Shelleen! Like you I also LOVE the Sims 2 and 3! (by the way did you see the Supernatural Expansion for 3? Comes out in Sept! Can't wait! LOL) I can spend hours on those as well!
