Where is everyone?

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.

I read your blog about everyday but rarely post as I don't have a blog of my own yet. I am pretty close to you, but in WV. I do have a webshots album - you can search briggb. Can't wait to see the lion - it sounds like a great idea. I am currently working on some wolves and the Mirabilia Halloween wingless fairy :)

What your state fair does is very interesting. Im sure it helps to get stitchers motivated and get projects entered.

Cant wait to see updates on your choice for next year.

Lions sound like a good choice and baby animals are always a crowd favorite. Personally, I don't like stitching animals much..the color palette just doesn't keep me interested, but I do admire the results of others.

Oh, that sounds like a really nice design to put in :o)

I love your blog. It's so witty and fun. I just have never posted on it before but decided tonight I would come out of lurkdom and let you know how much I appreciate reading it. And not to worry, not too many people read mine either. ;-)

I'm here! I try to blog atleast once a week. Sometimes i fall behind wit working and the boy.

Ithink you should go with the lion and baby. Everyone loves baby animals.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
