Fourteen days since I last blogged. I'm in the January slumps - I find myself playing endless games of solitaire on the computer, and not much else! A bit of stitching, a lot of cleaning [sewing room, pics someday] and that's it.
We've had a bit of snow, but only a bit, and a few sunny days. Even that wasn't enough to get me motivated. My aunt bought me some new shoes, as a reward for my getting over my fear of chamber pots, lol....ugh. Kitty loves my new shoes.
Not sure if you can see it in this pic or not, but she loves to face plant in the corner of the box.
It's not quite big enough for her, but don't tell her, ok?
Mum and I went for a visit to our friend Shirley's, she's been busier than me. She made this for her grandson, from a picture he had...
It's drawn with marker, and colored with markers, and stitched. Then she made this for her great-grand-daughter...
From a coloring book, made with the same method, but she also used silver glitter paint on the dress.
Shirley always inspires me to get stitching!
Mum was actually having a good time, although she didn't show it in this pic.
Carrie from A Passion For Applique had a post about the robot-defeating captcha on the comment form on blogs. I also use a pop-up box for comments, and you do NOT have to check the "I am not a robot" box, you can completely ignore it and your comment will still go through. I too don't like the embedded comments - I like to scroll through the post again while I comment, and the pop-up boxes work great for that. So if you'd like to leave me a comment, just ignore the robot box, ok? Your comment will still go through.
I've decided [although I'm apt to change my mind] that Saturdays will be my blogging days. I'm scrolling through my Old Reader today, catching up on your blogs, and thought I'd better post something as well! I'd love to get on some kind of schedule, for ANYTHING, and this might work for me. We'll see how it goes, lol, we all know about best-laid plans. Now to get more coffee and do some more reading - I'm looking so forward to catching up with you all!
