Looking back

This week, I got a 32 gig flashdrive with which to back up my data only to realize I'm a data hog.  I couldn't fit all my photos on it.  I then spent hours deleting redundant photos.  As I wade through years worth of photos documenting our work, I can't help but be amazed at the quantity.  When I look back at all that work, man am I tired!  It's been a productive ride.  I plan to eventually get many more of these examples of our
work put in their proper place on this blog, but for now...baby steps.

This week's highlights were really fun to create and really difficult to photograph.  I just can't seem to do some
of the frame choices justice.  The tall sampler has a particularly lovely frame that really repeats the motifs in the needlework, but I just can't seem to get that kind of detail.

Little Midge is still obsessed with my lone Daffodil.  She climbed atop a brick to put her little nose in it today
and brought to mind a circus elephant on a tiny stool.  I just can't stand it she's so sweet.  My Gidget has developed a stubborn streak and she will suddenly plant all fours like a bullheaded donkey and refuse to budge.  What she lacks in size she makes up for in determination.
Until next week - all my best stitching wishes,
Jill
