I finally replied to your comments via email today. Some of them are two months old and I cannot apologize enough for being away for long. I will be catching up with your blogs this week as much as I can, and I hope you can overlook my lack of comments.
I've missed you, my dear blogging and cyber friends and it is no one's fault but my own. Even hubby reminded me a few times to blog. But, do you find that when you fall out of the habit of doing something, it becomes an "oh I need to, I really should" but never quite get there kinda thing?
I got lazy, that's what I did. No ifs, ands, and buts about it. I thought that with being unemployed, I'd have all this time to stitch and blog. I mean, that's what I always talked about when I had a job... "Oh, to have more stitching time," "Oh, to have more time to read blog." Well... I got that time, and it all got eaten up by sitting around and playing games.
No regrets on that end though, as hubby and I had a blast hanging out, sleeping in, and doing as we pleased for the entire month of December, but this is 2013 and things need to get moving.
So, to that end, I have for you a picture of Lady A. I stitched quite a bit on her this past weekend. (IHSW was a bust for me... I did a lot of H'ing and absolutely no S'ing. ROFL!!!)
I have two colors finished on her skirt and have started the third. There is a blend for the lightest shade upcoming and that's always fiddly for me. So I'm hoping it won't take too long.
Like a lot of you, I'm looking forward to getting to her face. It'll be great to see her take shape. I haven't decided how exactly to do the chopsticks yet... adding some pearls on the ends might be kinda nice? Or maybe some beads from the skirt? What do you guys think?
Hugs and thanks for sticking with me through all the quiet. I'll make it up to you. :D
