No More Apologizing

apology 1.an expression of regret for having insulted or wronged another 2. a defense, as for a cause or doctrine
     I haven't posted anything for 12 days but I am not going to apologize (ever again). I don't believe that I have insulted or wronged anyone, at least, I hope not and in my own 'defense' I think that I have been just plain lazy about posting or I haven't had anything to say..and if I don't have any thing to say then you wouldn't want to read it anyway, would you?? There I got that off my chest and now I can go forward...it's not that I haven't been busy or doing stuff. Last week 4 of my quilter friends came for lunch and brought most of it. We had 2 kinds of soup, seven layer salad, cheese, crackers, pulled BBQ pork, bread and dessert..it was really tasty, what a nice way to entertain and get together with friends!!.They said they wanted to come over to see what I had accomplished on my PhD's. So we looked and discussed and pondered over my PhD's .I have been working on my Dear Jane and I am glad to report that I have 3 of the borders sewn together. I planned to sew today but it is already 3:30 pm and here I sit at the computer.

   A few weeks ago, I embroidered on a tea towel and plan to give it away to a friend, who had done several things for me and I think she needs to be compensated a little. I embroidered on opposite corners and I think the teapot, cup and saucer came out pretty good. Can you see a couple of little yellow beads that I added for just a little bling?  I love beads and put them on anything when I have a chance. I sure hope she likes it and if I make a loaf of Poppy Seed bread, she surely will. I will let you know when I give it to her. Well, I best go do some sewing, perhaps I can get that 4th border sewn together and then put them on the quilt. It will be a fine day when DJ is sewn together at last!!  Until next time, I hope you have a "Stitches" kind of day, my day here is very snowy.

Hi! I just found your charming blog and am so glad to have visited! Love your pretty sitching! I have a pattern that is close to the one you embroidered. I just love patterns like these, don't you? I know what you mean about not blogging every day and not having a lot to blog about. I usually only blog about once a week. I am too busy to more than that it seems. Have a great weekend. blessings,Kathleen
