Getting back on track

I'm a creature of habit, and when I get out of the habit of something (like blogging), I have a very difficult time getting back into it. Case in point: I've posted only one blog entry in the last 2 1/2 weeks.

I could come up with plenty of excuses-- work has been extremely hectic, I don't feel like spending time on-line at home, etc., etc., etc. But really, I was just being lazy. So, no more laziness... back to blogging!

Image hosting by PhotobucketThe first weekend of the month is my FUFO weekend. For March, I assembled the June Sampler Accent from Periwinkle Promises. I stitched this little thing YEARS ago, but just got around to putting it together. The photo isn't great, because there's a lot of tone-on-tone stitching, which doesn't show up very well.

I'm happy to report that I have stuck to my plan of assembling at least one FUFO per month. The pile is shrinking!! Well, sort of... I seem to be adding to it with various ornie finishes.

Over the weekend, I started working on my Spring Exchange project. I had a hard time choosing a pattern for this one-- there were so many I liked! Once I settled on a design, I decided to change the colors a bit, to something I thought my partner might like better. This resulted in a bit of frogging along the way, but I think most of that is resolved now. I'm very happy with the color change. I hope the recipient likes it!

Speaking of exchanges, the St. Patrick's exchange that I sent to Heather arrived safely. My pics didn't turn out very well, but if you visit her blog, there are better pics there. The pattern is from Sweetheart Tree.

DOH!!! I just realized that the (bad) photos I took of this exchange project haven't been uploaded to my Photobucket album yet, so I can't share. You'll have to visit Heather's blog if you want to see them.

I haven't taken any update photos of my stitching lately. I'll do that tonight... I promise!!! Check tomorrow for plenty of pics.

Hello Juanita, your June sampler looks great, and has been for a look at the pics of your exchange to heather and wow! I love it. The scissor fob looks so neat. Looking forward to see more of your update.

Your June Sampler is a gorgeous piece! I love tone-on-tone, even tho it doesn't photograph very well. :D

What a great piece! Keep that needle moving all right...You are motivating me. You see, there is this "how many UFO's you can turn to FUFO's before August is over?" - project. And I am struggling with my "Praying Child" still today. I started almost one year ago...and I want to get it done! It should have done when the date was June 24th this year, but it wasn't. So now I hope it is done by August 31th this year or June 24th next year. Thanks for motivating me...I hope I get my canvas done.
