I know I've neglected my blog this month. It just couldn't be helped. Mom's shoulder surgery went well, but we're not comfortable leaving her alone because her sense of balance is not good. So I've been running back and forth. When I'm there, I don't really have much to say and when I'm home I'm busy trying to catch up with all the daily stuff, plus my Etsy work. Hopefully, I'll be back in the swing soon.
I have made a little progress on Quaker Diamonds. My stitching time is more limited than it's been in twenty years! I'm not used to going so slowly, but at least it's fun. As you can probably tell, my usual method of stitching every stitch of a particular color has been altered a little. I'm going page by page on this one, but still stitching by color on each page.
And on the Etsy front, I have added the first of my new line of beaded laying tools. Stay tuned, more to come!
I am a retired software engineer and needlework shop owner. I'm married and currently have two pug babies, Lester and Otis. I try to stitch every day...make that I NEED to stitch every day. I also make beaded needlework accessories and sell them in needlework shops and on-line at http://tjbdesigns.etsy.com
