Late update on Snow Valley Express!


I should have posted this on the 15th of March, but that apparently didn't happen! I am obviously quite a bit behind on my posting. I try to post every 5th day, after stitching on one of the 3 projects in my rotation for 5 days. So, I owe posts on all three of my projects! (If that makes sense!)

I was able to get quite a bit of work in on this one. I especially liked that I really started to put in a lot of the backstitching on the front of the engine!! It is really starting to come along!

So! What about all this hooplah about Googlereader, huh? I can't believe they are taking away this wonderful feature!!! I have been looking into new options (like many of us are!) I have seen many posts about "Bloglovin'", which I still have to check out! I do have "Feedly", which is much like googlereader, and I like it.  And if all else fails, there is always the "reader" in our blogger dashboard, but only the blogs that you follow will show up there.  I am sure I will still get plenty of enabling for my stitching addiction through these ways of keeping up with you all!

I have been reading blogs alot lately, just not commenting too much, I'm sorry! I have alot less time now to fritter around on the computer. My FB participation is practically nil, and I spend most my time reading blogs, or stitching and reading. And of course spending time with my little one!

Thank you to my new followers, and all the lovely comments you all leave, even though I have been lazy about it myself!!! I really appreciate it!  Have a great week, and I will be back soon with an update on "The Abbey" in a few days.

I also have some thing fun to share! I just ordered stash!! I haven't done this in SO long!!! A few years at least, other than the required smallish purchases of threads I've run out of, I haven't spent any money on any new patterns! But! I have been drooling over one at "Kustom Krafts" for a LONG time. It is called "Morning Song-Orca Whales" it depicts some orca whales in water, and The Aurora Borealis (Northern lights) In a backwash of light purple/lavendar light! It is gorgeous!!! I also bought the coordinating fabric that goes with it-light blue, and now I just realized, I may have made a mistake in doing so...shoot! Yes I made a mistake! I like to work on 18 count aida, and the piece that comes with it is 14 count! Dang it! Well, guess I will have to make another order...Oh well. I will share a photo of it in my next post!

You’ve doing a fantastic job Lana. Once the back stitching starts to go in it really does lift’s the piece and the detail starts to take shape, doesn’t it. It doesn’t look as though it will too long before it’s finished.

Happy Stitching!

gorgeous stitching! :D

I'm so annoyed about google reader! I'm currently trying out feedly but not sure whether I like it. I was told about newsblur but it costs.
