Nervous Needlepointer

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!

Ummmmmn..., Not technically an icon, punkin. I know, the last thing you probably need today is linguistic correction, but it may be a shield, an ornament, aa project or any number of other things, but an icon it's not. Oops.
