What? A blog post? Shock! Awe!
Seriously, I realize I've been missing for the last week. February and March are shaping up to be busy months, and while I'll do my best to pop in on a regular basis, I expect there may be more days that I'm absent than present. Last week was newsletter week at church which, combined with making it a short week so I could head to WKY Friday morning, made for a whirlwind of a few days that I barely remember! The best part of the whirlwind was the blessed quiet of a long weekend at home. While the wifi and satellite TV make a trip to the woods not quite the getaway as it used to be, it's still a place of quiet relaxation for me. While there I made great progress on my first needlepoint project (Yes, I do consider one-fourth of the X part of the project 'great progress'...no, I can't imagine what I'll call it when I'm actually working on the blue part...):
A group of ladies at St.R are needlepointing various religious icons for our Parish Christmas tree, and I wanted to take part. My contribution, St. Andrew's cross, was the easiest pattern I could find. I have until July to finish, but hopefully I'll be able to share the finished project (my part of it, at least) much sooner than that!
