The Marigolds that I always plant along the sidewalk to our front door are flourishing, as they always do this time of year. The flowers have grown right over the sidewalk, leaving a small pathway to the front door.
I have a blog question and hope that someone can help me with it. I want to be able to start another blog that I can keep private so that just those people who I have approved can read it. Is that possible?
I really REALLY enjoy writing and the last few years...you can tell by how my writing in here has virtually stopped...I've stopped writing in here other than business related things. I've stopped writing for a reason and that reason can't be posted in here for the whole world to see.
Basically, it's my rule to follow that I "don't mess with crazy". So I want to hide from crazy so that crazy doesn't become even more crazy!
And...actually, once I'm hiding from crazy, I can tell the story of crazy with no fear.
It's not that I have anything all that important to write about. It's not that I expect a huge audience to read and shower me with praise and accolades for my amazing writing skills. I don't want that at all.
Just as I have this desire to stitch, I just have a great desire to write and if all of you want to read my mush and are entertained by my mush, all the better.
I have to say that in 8th grade I won first place in a writing contest. I won over the entire 7 & 8th grade class. It was a short story and it had a really sad ending. I think I made people cry with the ending. The bad thing about it though was that all my classmates who didn't know me thought it was a true story. They all felt sorry for me because of how much I suffered though such bad circumstances. I wish now that I would've made the school principal announce to everyone that it wasn't a true story.
Anyway, if someone could help me figure out how to make a blog that I can make private/not public to the whole world, I'd appreciate it. Email me with the help please .. email@example.com
In other news... this weather has made me crave Stuffed Cabbage or "Pigs in the Blanket" as we call them here in Western Pa. "Pigs" are popular in my family so I made a full roaster of them this morning.
I had a really good crop of tomatoes in my garden this year so I was able to use fresh tomato sauce too. I love pigs! It's starting to smell really nice here in the house.
Stitching news....I've been so busy doing so many other things around the house that I'm behind on getting the new design out. Here's a little sneak peak ...it's a work in progress so there will be some slight changes in the finished design.
It has a lot of embroidered detail. I've tried to stay away from putting too much embroidered details in the designs that I sell, because most of you don't really appreciate all the tedious stitching.
This is what I enjoy doing though .. and I know that some of you, like me, enjoy stitching embroidery details so this design will be just for us tedious stitchers!
That's all I have for now! Don't be jealous of my Pigs, ladies. You're all invited over for dinner tonight...homemade mashed potatoes AND ... homemade bread too! Be here for 5pm eastern standard time. :)
