Hiatus

hi·a·tus   [hahy-ey-tuhs] plural hi·a·tus·es, hi·a·tus.
1. a break or interruption in the continuity of a work, series, action, etc.
So, after thinking long and hard, I've decided to take a hiatus. I know, I know... am I sure? No, not really, but it's something I think I should do.

At least for a bit...

I'm not saying that I won't come back to it, but right now, there are other things on my mind...

... like stitching...
... and blogging...
... and hanging out with my blogging pals.

*looks around in amazement* Y'all didn't think I meant I was going to take a hiatus from blogging, did you??!!! Nooooo, I meant a hiatus from "the game." ;)

Last night, I did what I never thought I'd do: leave a project hanging (poor third butterfly has little lines of black and not much else) and started a new one. And can you believe, Vanessa called me a 'serial starter'!!! Well, I never! The nerve!!! *snort* LOL!!

So, back in the saddle again and here is the very abysmal start to Gardenia, stitched on PTP's Chrysalis.



I wish the color of the fabbie came out better. It's actually a soft, light green. It's not anything that would make you go 'wow' or say it's 'stunning' but it's such a sweet, soothing color (almost like the early buds of spring as the cool airiness of winter says farewell) and it makes my heart sigh. :)

Pfew! You scared me, girl! My first thoughts were: no more lovely blogs and comments and what about the IHSW's?! But it's just the game. Pfew! Welcome back in blogland ;o)

HaHaHa - now step a lil' closer so I can smack you for scaring us like that! JK!

A lovely green swirl you stitched! Nice start!

LOL You goof. I'm sure your chicky will understand you taking a break. She is tired and needs a vacation from all the killing she's been doing haha.

I love starting new pieces and yours looks beautiful. Good luck with it!
Hiatus are forbidden. LOL. Just kiddiing.
It is sometimes the things at the end that go wow and if we never start them, we never get the "Wow Factor":))
TFS darling.

Heart - a- tack - the effect such an announcement has upon the stitching community!
I haven't had such a scare since I watched "Final Destination"! I believe more strands of my hair turned white! (smile) You are such a stinker! But we obviously all love you and are glad its D3 you'll be interacting less with and not us!

LOL, and here my first thought was "aahhh, so she finally announces her leaving us for D3, I see, I see. I understand the pull of The Game. *sage nod*" But no! LIES! XD

G'luck staying away! I can already hear Skyrim calling me back for another couple of characters.

I like your fresh start! Green things are wonderful since everything around here burnt to a crisp this summer.
