Last night was our stitching group and as we all gathered around the table, talking, laughing and some stitching going on a question was asked "when was the last time that I bloged?" Well the simple answer to that is awhile ago. I just don't think I lead an interesting enough life to talk about anything. I was corrected. So I will again put type to words.
First of all congrads to our fellow stitcher who is expecting a baby boy. My advice sit back and enjoy the ride. No two people have the same experience and the time will be as good or bad as you make it.
Now on the blog side of things. This morning as in many morning I opened and read a favorite blog and sorry to say but does the print really have to be that small. I don't wish to have to put on my magnifiers so that I can read it give a poor retired person a break. lol.
D and I have once again approached the idea of me moving out of our mutal craft/train space and giving it all to him. The biggest problem as most may know is that train modellers don't usually like windows in their layouts as it is hard to portray a night scene. A sewer/stitcher on the other hand relishes the natural light from windows. So a compromise has been made.
I will vacate the space with two new spaces to move to. I rubber stamp so it will go into the family room where the printer is so that I can use that when I am making cards. My stitching/sewing will go upstairs to my sons bedroom as the space becomes available. I'm not completely happy with this but I think I can make it my own. My husband is going up north this weekend so maybe it would be a good time to start the move.
My son has gratuated from college and has obtained a position in his field which we are extremely proud of. I have asked him if now we would start to clear out his room he doesn't have to take it until he and his girlfriend have there own place (end of the year) but as least it would be a start and I could also start to organize my stash. Maybe it will be time to purge as well.
My brother-in-law has asked if I would like his wife's, Barb's rubber stamping stash, she was the one that got me started in the first place. I suggested that he first ask her stamping friends and if he still needs to give them away I would take them. So now I have to find a large enough space in the event that this arrives as well. I guess the saga will continue on this over the summer. Meantime I will work out what I have.
My stitching has been picked up once again and moving along but no pictures at this time maybe next time. Time to get to work. Happy stitching one day at a time.
Keep on Stitching, one thread a day. Pennie
