I'm not back yet, but I'm on my way

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!


  1. Quacker Diamonds is looking lovely. Hope your Mom is doing well. Have a great day.

  2. Quaker Diamonds is amazing! It's going to be hard not to do some stash enhancing after seeing yours. Are you using the charted colors or did you change them up?
    I also love your laying tools. I don't use them myself, but as beautiful as they are I may have to add them to my stitching tool box anyway. Hmmm.......they would also be nice to add to a giveaway! ***looking at checkbook and trying to get this worked into this month's budget***

  3. Quaker diamonds is so, so pretty. So glad your mom is doing better.

  4. Glad mom is progressing~~~ wow, you must have been burning up the roads~~ Be safe and you know I LOVE your progress on your stitchery~~

    Hang in there, Faye
