Crazy Challenge Day 9

Just the briefest of entries for Day 9 Of the Crazy Challenge, we're nearing the end of this... only 6 more new starts to go!

It was  a full day today, first day back at work after the holidays and on top of that I was teaching at Taekwon-Do tonight.  So I had only an hour (if that) of stitchign time after I got home, had a shower a snack and a cup of tea.

Snow White from Little House Needleworks
Stitched on Navy Blue 28ct Lugana
Stitched with DMC B5200 (booyeah love this white it rocks!)

Today's start (and a poor one at that) was by Little House Needleworks... which I swore I would never own one of ther charts that it just wasn't my taste.  I do have a weakness for monochromatic designs if you haven't noticed and this one jumped into my hands and came home with me sometime last year.  So may I present to you Little House Needleworks Snow White.  Please excuse the very poor picutre, the colours aren't right and the white is blown out, but I'm too tired to go try to shoot it any better!




I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all the fantastic comments I've received in the past 24 hours!  Its been overwhelming!  Its a true sign of how much you all support me and the life of this blog!  I was surprised by how many of you clued into the fact that my blog was gone (for a short while thank goodness!) and that you persisted and came back when it turned out to be only temporary.  Its going to take me awhile but I will eventually visit you all back at your blogs and leave lovely comments (who dosen't love comments?)  The Stitching/Crafting Blogging Community is just an amazing group of people who to me aren't just names but faces, and personalities too!  I hope in the coming months and years I'll get to meet more of you in person, I have been lucky to meet some of you and treasure each in person meeting!  I also appreciate the time people have taken to meet me when I've been in their neck of the woods and made a day or a trip very special!

Isn't it awful going back to work after some time off, it really does interfere with my stitching time lol. I'm glad that your blog is here to stay, it's one of my favourite places to visit!

Sara said...

Just read your last few entries, what a scary thing to think you've lost your blog! Glad it was just a false alarm.

Nice start for the day, LHN isn't usually quite my taste either but they do have a few small designs that have caught my eye and made their way into my stash.

Julie said...

All work and no relaxation time makes for a grouchy stitcher LOL.

Hope you manage some time for yourself now you have returned to work after the hols.
