Caught Up

I'm all caught up with my blog reading and I've got to say that there are some very talented people out there. I wish I could meet all of them and see the pretties in person. Not to mention that some of you are very prolific. Makes me want to go sit and stitch the day away. But the garden is calling and needs some attention. Especially as I went to the nursery yesterday.

There was some sad news in the Washington Post today. The obituary of Ray Dockstader, needlepoint artist extraordinaire. I've admired his original artworks at the Woodlawn Needlework Show for years. His talent will be missed.

Last night was Stitch N Pitch here in Washington, D.C. They lost a close game. I brought my Sunflower Seed cross stitch - "When Life Hands You Lemons...." Didn't get a ton of stitching accomplished as I started outlining the word lemons in green and didn't like it and pulled it out. I guess I will do this with the yellow instead. Somehow this word needs more definition on the yellow fabric. That's what comes of changing colors willy nilly.

Did you see the article in Sunday's Post about the Uniontown Country Club?

I'm sorry to hear Ray D. is gone. I hadn't gotten to the Washington Post yet so I hadn't found the obit. Thanks for the tip.

Jane, sighing at April's loss of Jean Hilton and now Ray Dockstader....
