And no, I'm not upset! I've been having fun with cross stitches and have completed the base for the latest house ornament. This one is the book shop and next 'up' will be to add the topstitching to bring it to life.
- For those who are missing in-person quilt shows, perhaps a peek through THESE will help!
- The creations of THIS artist are fun to see. And have a click through the embroideries of THIS artist too.
- Scroll down through the gallery of THESE amazing artists!
- Experimenting with some of THESE techniques would be fun.
Yes to the quotation. And remember to enjoy now. That's already a lot, for most of us!ReplyDelete
Enjoying the now is sometimes difficult but that quote serves as a good reminder.Delete
Love the cross stitch. I have come to the conclusion that I like needlepoint more. Cross stitch takes so much time. That said, I will endeavour to complete the kits that I bought while in England.Delete
Needlepoint is definitely faster to do. It's been years since I did any so perhaps I might have to look into picking it up again. Hmmm.....although.....that might mean a whole 'nother acquisition of stash I don't need!!Delete
Thanks for more awesome links to artists and methods!! that quotation is so true--hugs, JuieroseReplyDelete
You're welcome! Glad you enjoy the links.Delete
Great quote. Love the bookshop cross stitch.ReplyDelete
Our oldest grandie is a reader now so thought this ornament would be perfect for him.Delete
Beautiful cross stitching Mary Anne and I love your quote! It's so true especially as one gets older. The time seems to pass even more quickly! Hugs Christine xxReplyDelete
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed the quote because I know it struck a chord with me.Delete
Thank you! Those dying techniques are just what I need for a tunic project.ReplyDelete
Yay - now I'm looking forward to seeing what you do!Delete
I'm so thankful Greg and I lived our life as your quote mentions. We went ahead & spent some money on traveling and doing things together. I had decided if the government decided to bankrupt my retirement they could just lay me on the roadside when my health turns bad. I saw my parents save money and sit home for naught.ReplyDelete
Good for you. So many of us try to save for a rainy day and then end up like your parents (and mine). Many think they need to leave their money to their kids when in truth most kids would rather see their parents enjoy their lives.Delete
