I know a lot of people don't participate in these awards and if you don't want to participate that's fine. I am literally amazed at and enjoy EVERYONE'S blogs. I think this is a good opportunity to open up new blogs to people.

While I was on vacation I did start a very small project. It's called "Cheaper than Therapy" by My Big Toe Designs. I'm doing it on a 32 ct Silkweaver Solo with WDW and GAST threads. I changed the thread colors so they would match the linen better.
I am basically done with my daughter's bedroom (just need to buy new curtains and hang them) so I'm going to make myself sit down and stitch this afternoon. I'm not sure what I'll pick up, will probably just look in my WIP's basket and see who's hollering the loudest.

This is absolutely the longest post I've ever posted. Thanks if you made it to this point.
Have a great weekend.

Wow! Thank you for the nomination of Brillante Weblog. You're such a sweetheart. I've been remiss in keeping my blog up grandmother and all. But I enjoy passing by everyone else's. Though I don't always leave a comment... Sending love and hugs, Deb

Thanks so much for thinking of me and nominating me for the Brillante Award! I won't be able to pass it along at this point since I'm still on vacation and currently using the library computer. My time is limited!
I'm anxious to see more of your new start. I love Big Toe Designs. Pretty fabric you're using!

Wow, I see some new to me blogs that I need to check out from your awards.

Love the Big Toe-Therapy design. Blogs are never too long. Enjoy reading everything.
