Sorry for being MIA!!

It has been so long since I have posted that I am really embarassed.  I guess I have just let life get in the way.  I have stillllll been working on Village at Hawk Run Hollow and am on the next to last box.....YEAH!  I have a bunch of WIP's waiting to be finished and of course my STASH that is calling me.  I am posting a picture of my progress on box 11 of VoHRH.  It is not the best picture, but I did not want to take it off the Q-Snaps.  Hopefully I will be able to make progress this weekend.  I said that about box 10 and it just seemed to take forever.  I guess I can't be too hard on myself, this piece is huge and I do have this thing called "work" that interferes with my stitching

I also wanted to share a system to organize silks and specialty floss.  The system is called Annie's Keepers, maybe some of you are using or have heard of it before.  It has a strip similar to a pendalfex file that fits into a plastic file container.  There are plastic keepers that you label with the color name, etc. and they hang in the file box.  No more wondering if you have the color or not and I have heard it is better to let the floss breath rather then having them in plastic bags.  When you kit up a project they keepers have a hole at the top so you can put the floss on a ring.  I have not finished setting this up but am including a picture so that you are able to see what I am talking about.  I ordered mine from Acorns and Threads in Portland Oregon they are really helpful and have them in stock most of the time.

Hope everyone has a great and safe Halloween.  I will try and post my progress on Monday.

Thanks for sticking with me.


Oh....GO USC!!!  Fight On!!
