I realize my blog is not interesting with no photos, but I keep going on everyone's blogs and there's not a lot of new posting. That makes me sad. I like your blogs. I like y'all. I miss reading your writings. Please come back. I'm still here. I'm still real. I really am Rachel from Maryland--I would show you my driver's license to let you know I really am me, but I don't think the world is ready to handle seeing that picture.
Anyway . . .
Not much is going on here. I decided what my project is going to be for the special contest at the state fair next year. The special contest, which is a class where they choose a letter of the alphabet, and you have to stitch a subject that begins with that letter, is " Things that begin with L." This year, it was "S", and I did my sheep for that, last year, it was T. I think you have to be pretty specific; one lady stitched a gorgeous Barb and Cheryl "Sunshine and Shadows", and it got nothing. I think they didn't see how it was something that began with S. Anyway, this year, I thought about going with a lighthouse, but that's pretty common, and I want to stand out. Plus, I had this gorgeous Maria Diaz design in an old Cross Stitch Collection magazine of a lioness and her cub. It's just like a photo, very lifelike. So that is my entry. I misplaced the magazine (of course), but I found it last night, and spent most of the evening cuddling it.
