Have you noticed the background of my blog? Do you know what that is? It’s a quilt block. When was the last time you saw something quilt-like on my blog? 🙁 This blog started as a way to share my current quilt projects with my mom and sisters. (I know one sister reads daily, and my mom has started reading more and more…) But there are hardly any quilt projects here. *sigh*
Frankly I’m unhappy with my blog. With blogging in general. I feel like I keep getting disappointed about lack of interaction and this that and the other. (Woah, that was a different blog post that has merged into this one, sorry.. more on that later.) I need more sewing, quilting and cross stitching in my life in addition to in my blog.
In case you missed it, www.MadebyMardi.com is up and running and I’ve been busy filling some Crayon Apron orders. (It’s not too late to get some by Christmas!)
In addition to the Crayon Aprons, I have been working on some cross stitch again. I posted my starting pictures and status a few days ago… okay a week. Here is an update on that WIP. I have not spent as much time as I would like on it, but there’s something.
Also there is another sampler cross stitch that I have been working on for a while now… I just need time to sit and do it. Anyone know how I can hold a book and read it while cross stitching at the same time (outside of audio books)???
I know this one is a little hard to see… I haven’t put in any darker thread colors quite yet.
Oh a wreath… that’s in the spirit of the season… right?
Ooh Look! A QUILT!
In an effort to encourage myself to do more… I’m going to try to participate in this meme from Freshly Pieced (something I only just discovered today!). So come on readers, cheer me on!
