This Is A Contemporary Feminist's Take On Traditional Needlework -

I find it disturbing that this type of thing still happens to me. It obviously only needs the object to possess XX chromosomes. No need to be young and beautiful. Very powerful, what she has done with words here. Go, Duchess.

Stitching Update

Photos of what is in my stitching bag right now.

From these you'd think I was only working on painted canvas. Not true. It's just what's here in the bag available for photography.

The two small ones are DC Designs from Amanda Lawford. I'm gonna have fun compensating around the cats and bats! Not. Oh, and the cats' eyes glow in the dark.

The sheep is going to be all French knots with two strands of Burmilana. Cute little face.

And finally I'm approaching the finish line on my brickcover. Love this still.

Long Time Gone

Apologies. I certainly didn't mean to not post for this long. I hope no one's been concerned. 

First, some baby pictures. Look who turned one year old! Gosh that was fast. 

She's adorable. And she knows it. 

Below are a few of our travel photos from the summer.

We visited Portland Head in July when I was feeling awful. I had a bout of food poisoning and it took me a month to recover. It's an iconic lighthouse - I've even stitched it. 
From the ocean to the mountains of West Virginia. Time to ride a train. 

Back to the ocean - almost. We took a lunch cruise in the Baltimore Harbor to see the Tall Ships and Blue Angels flying over Fort McHenry to commemorate the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner. 

Trust me. I've been stitching. Haven't been finishing much. But I've been very productive. Is this what happens when you've got too many projects going at once? Stitching update soon. And a delayed celebration coming too...
