I am definitely getting into the Halloween mood, so I thought I would dig up a few past projects! After perusing the blog a few nights ago, I realized this Night Creature is one of my oldest WIPs, from the Gathering Place.
When I am feeling lost, I often scroll through the pages of this blog. Each project reminds me of where I was in life and who I spent the many hours with stitching away with a cup of tea in hand.
I realized tonight that not only have my hands sat idle for the past 2 years, but so has the dialogue the Mother, Crone and I maintained through this blog. Time, distance, a lack of Wi-Fi, and an inability to stitch have created a void in this blog, and I will attempt to fill it with projects never posted and updates left unsaid.
Where has all the stitching gone? The Crone is finally on summer break and may pick up some UFOs in the near future and the mother is stitching away while on bed rest after breaking her ankle but has not posted. As for me, I continue to struggle with pain after my accident and have not been able to find a way back to the hobby I love. I remain ever hopeful, so in the meantime I stash!
Once retired, Gastlies has returned with a new line of quilting fabric. I am in so much trouble! I have signed up for a quilting class in September and cannot wait!
The crone was here for the weekend, celebrating 40 years of marriage! We did manage to get in some shopping at Stitcher's Paradise, The Christmas Goose (quilt shop) and a local bead store in between the numerous celebratory meals. I decided to bite the bullet and buy part one of the Sarah Sam Mystery Sampler (I have a strong aversion to patterns that come in parts, but could not resist this one!). Along with the pattern I got cute crocheted pot holders ($2 each for all that work!) and a stuffed cat toy pattern (Gastlies cats for everyone!). The Maiden
