NEW LOOK, NEW POST, AND HOPEFULLY NEW VISITORS TO ADD TO THE REGULARS!!

FINALLY!! I figured out how to change the look of my BLOG! I've been busy reading some wonderful stitching Blogs lately and when I see the number of comments they have, I think "wonder why my poor little Blog doesn't get many comments?!"....Okay, agreed, it might help if I updated more often!! But, if you read my Blog will you comment on this post for me??? Pleeease?!! That'd make my day...really!!!!

Life's been busy around here...raising 3 teenagers (okay two teenagers and an "almost" teenager!)...but I still managed to find the time to stitch and do a bit of knitting....

I'm on a Plum Street Samplers kick lately...I love Paulette's Blog and her designs, which I discovered a few months ago!

I started "My Pretties" on some 30 count mystery fabric I have in my stash....and I also started "Still Waters"...on some 28 count fabric I had. This is a larger project for me, but I will get it done at some point this year!! I see on her Blog that she has a new chart coming out soon....ofcourse I'll have to get that one too!! Can never have TOO many charts!!




On the knitting front, I had all this extra yarn left from my Blankets that I make and my youngest is on a Legwarmer kick, so I told her I could make her a pair...I started these last night...and I'll be working on them until they are finished, so had to set my stitching aside...


anyway, my friends....thank you for reading this post!! Maybe one of these years I can hope to get more and more comments!!!

Have a great day!
Marion

Love the new blog look! Very nice. :) I love your progress on Paulette's designs. I have promised myself that I can get Still Waters when I finish a few of her charts that I have in my stash. Of course, then I just buy more of the new things she has out, but she's such a great designer that it's hard to resist the temptation. ;) Nice work on the Nevermore design, too!

Hi Marion,
Your new blog look is very nice. Love your new starts. Paulette is one of my absolute favorite designers. I keep eyeing that new design that she is giving sneak peeks on as well. I know I will have to have it when it is released. I am looking forward to seeing your progress on all of the things that you have going. I had no idea leg warmers were becoming popular again. That takes me back to my teen years in the 80s very quickly. :)
Have a great rest of the weekend!

Love the new look and just the other day I was wondering where you had been. I love your progress on Paulette's pieces. She really does have some great designs. I look forward to seeing more progress on your pieces.

And your knitting looks great too. Definitely need it the way our weather has been lately.

Hi Marion,
Thanks for stopping by Corgi Cottage and taking the time to leave a comment.
I stitched the model of Still Water for Paulette. I hope you enjoy stitching the design as much as I enjoyed stitching the model.

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. Love all your new starts. I did the "Nevermore" raven on a an altoid box.. Love that design!

I knit and stitch too. Legwarmers seem to making a really big resurgence. You're making nice progress on your projects.

Nen said...

Ohh! I could go for some leg warmers! Wish I knew how to knit... just don't have the patience for it!

Nice New Look! :)
