Being English the word "colors" in the second verse looked really odd to me so I just had to change it and make it into "colours". Another personalisation lol. I also added the four missing stitches. And isnt it amazing what looking at a photo can do because this time I realise that I have missed the two little butterflies. I meant to go back and add them at the end. Well it has now been put away so they will just have to stay missing until after my holiday. I hope someone will remind me if I forget about them when I get back.
I actually got a couple of hours this afternoon to do this and so this evening I have made a start on my Friends are Treasures chart. There is not enough done on this at the moment to show a picture but I hope I will find a little more stitching time in the next couple of days and be able to post a picture of it before I go.
Not long ago I was feeling frustrated at going through every blog on my list each time I came on and maybe only finding one that had an update. I happened to mention this and someone (sorry I cant remember who) pointed me in the direction of Bloglines. It has been a revelation as now I only go to a blog when it is updated. This has also meant that I have had the chance to browse new blogs and add them to bloglines and I now have about 60 blogs I visit but as some only post occassionally it doesnt take up that much time now. I am amazed at some of the stitching and finishing I have seen. One lady I visit is making the most exquisite christening gown with hundreds of the most beautiful little rosebuds. Another is doing a beautiful abstract design in lovely bright colours but working on black. Some of the finishes that these people do also amaze me, brilliant boxes, baskets and needlecases, I could go on and on. I am just so glad that I have discovered the world of blogging and it has made me realise just how much I still have to learn.
Also though I havent said it for a little while I would like to say a big thank you to those who visit my blog and especially those who leave comments for me. You are all so kind and encouraging.
Bless you all and hope you have lots and lots of stitching time.
