Catching Up. Slow Stitching. A Winner. Face it, this is a mishmash...

I got behind in my blog reading! It is truly amazing how fast the number of posts in Google Reader goes up when you aren't looking. It's being pared down but I find myself snapping from one blog to the next with no comments being left. I'm reading, enjoying your stitching and your life updates but forgive me if I haven't commented lately. Once I catch up, I will be my usual chatty self.

Stitching is still slow. How can you concentrate on stitching when your reader has a gazillion unread posts? But I'm close to a finish on Blackbird Designs Small Token. This is going to make the prettiest pin pillow. I'm looking forward to the finishing.


I can announce the next stitcher on the Traveling Pattern in my recent post...Jan of Stitching Cats is it! Congratulations Jan! I will be in contact for your mailing address.

In case you missed it, I have a new freebie posted yesterday. You can clicky the cat in my left sidebar to see all my freebie designs, they are all still available for the asking. By the way...who is ready for a new reindeer freebie? Anyone?

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Hi Daffycat. I so enjoy reading your blog. And I know what you mean about getting behind. I didn't read my blogs last Thu and just finally caught up. Would sure love it if you had time to look at my blog. It would make my day.

Yes, it always amazes me how quickly those unread posts pile up!! You're not the only one, Sharon :)

I do love the BBD piece--why I haven't stitched it myself is beyond me. Maybe seeing yours all finished up will inspire me!

Congratulations to Jan and, yes, a new reindeer design would be perfect for this time of year :)

Myra said...

Can't wait to see how you finish small token. I have always loved the colors in that design.
Yep, would love to see your reindeer for this year. :)

Karen said...

Looking good! It wouldn't be the start of the holiday season with a reindeer from you!

happy stitching...

Lesleyanne said...

Christine said...

Small token is lovely. I know what you mean about getting behind on blogs, you only need to miss a couple of days and then it takes forever to catch up

I know how you feel, I am way behind in reading blogs too! Life just gets busy sometimes!

I can't wait to see this finished as a pin pillow! I just love the design.

Chris said...

Lovely stitching! So close to that finish!

Siobhán said...

I get so behind in reading and commenting, too. I try to pick a date and go from there. No worries, I think we all realize life happens!

Lovely stitching! I love the RoMerit designs.

Anna van Schurman said...

November is definitely not a month to get behind. With so many people NaBlowing, it really stacks up! Good luck.

Yana Hanim said...

happy stitching and i always behind in reading the blogs and now reading all comments above i feel that i am not alone :)

Lisa said...

Loving the little Blackbird Designs stitching, colours are so pretty.

Anne said...

That google reader is always going up for me too! I tend to do a lot of scrolling as well, and I usually comment on the most recent post. Lovely stitching so far. I think it'll make a pretty pin pillow too :D

I would love to see your new reindeer! I made your last one and gave it to my Dad who wore the ornie on his moose hat! He needs another one!!

Julie said...

Been trying hard to catch up on blog reading here too, I missed a few days with Dh being sick.

Super stitching, this deign is so pretty. I have it in my stash too.

Nicola said...

I know exactly what you mean about the number of posts, you go a day and there are soooooo many to catch up on.

Jan said...

Speaking of catching up on blogs - I won! Thanks Sharon.
Another reindeer???? That would be awesome.

Michelle said...

Small token is looking wonderful. Congratulations to Jan x

hard to believe it's new moon time again!

Lynn said...

I am loving your BBD! It's so pretty!
Me, Me (hand wildly waving!) I'm ready for a new reindeer!! They're my favourites.

I am also hopelessly behind in my commenting. I can't keep up with all the posts anymore. I get no stitching done if I do.
