No, I'm not dead yet!

I haven't been abducted by aliens either. I've just been away visiting my mom for several days. I don't get a lot of my normal stuff done when I'm away from home. Even though I have my laptop with me, I don't think you want pictures of me balancing her checkbook or all of us sitting around in our jammies being silly. So to spare you from that, I neglect my blog.

I don't get tons of stitching done when I'm there either, despite the fact that my wonderful husband replaced one of the bulbs in a livingrooom lamp with a daylight bulb! He takes such good care of me. However, I did get some late night (after dark in Mom's mind) stitching done on Shores of Hawk Run Hollow. (I'd abbreviate it to SoHRH, but I'm hoping there are new readers and they might not understand.) Block 3 is almost done. The only thing left is to fill in the water at the bottom and in the bird bath. Then I'll decide whether or not to continue on to another block or go back to Pigalle.

I've also been really working hard on my Etsy shop, making new scissor fobs and counting pins. My book thongs and shepherd's crook bookmarks were a big hit for Christmas gifts, so I'll be adding more of those. The new stitch markers for crochet have been very popular too. I just have so much fun laying out the beads and combining shapes and colors and textures. If you haven't visited lately, please stop by. You might find something you just can't live without. Or you might get an idea for a custom set of counting pins and a fob. I love doing special orders.
