Hmm, poking around at my pics on the desktop, I found this other pic of SK Blossoms. It's older, from last year, but I don't think I uploaded it here. Hmm, maybe I did...but it was a while ago. I've done a nice bit finally, in the last few months, so it's farther along, but this should tide you over for a little while. Amazing how difficult some of these confetti spots can be.
I am getting antsy. I still have to break my day down into very small bits. I do make a mental list, now that I can get away from having to write on paper there for a while......so at least I do have goals and errands in a clear light, of what needs to get done. I just can't get it all done, by far. I am the XMAS tree decorator, for example.........but even with the tree assembled and the ornaments out and unwrapped, it took me 3 days(one day off in the middle, too sore) to do lights, garland and a few ornaments, in between a few other errands out of the house.
I will be looking forward to some serious stitching pretty soon. I got my first charts ordered from Tilton Crafts, too. More of the same, unsual and interesting charts. You guys may have to help me figure out which one to start first!

I had wanted to take the latest update pics on everything, now that I am making some progress stitching. But, my energy is not up to snuff yet, so a little at a time. This is MS October Birthstone, small, on 18ct white. Mostly just the black outline. I have tried to fill in with a few confetti stitches, but that's not as easy as I was thinking. The confetti doesn't follow any pattern or simple lines to jump around nicely in a small area.
My initial website is up and running. I've just started working on it, again, very small bits at a time. Nowhere near ready to really put out there for advertising, etc. But you can peek, The Blushin Rose and check it out. I'm hoping to chip away at some good progress on it at least by the end of the year, but, never know with the holidays.
And my holiday plans are pretty quiet(ha, that's what I said last year---don't need a repeat of THAT). Hope you all are having a decent holiday season, with stitching time! Don't let the stress get you bonkers!
