It Wasn't All Good...

Vacation with my honey was great...but not everything about it was good. There was what is now being called "The Little House Neighborhood Disaster of 2009". I'll not give details - maybe later. The photo below tells it all.
I'm truly not sick about this. I have not, however, started stitching this again. I will. Probably soon. Just not right now. While I'm not sick about this, I'm also not ready to start this over again either right now. Yes, I need to start completely over.

After a couple of days I pulled out Quakers and Quilts. Looked at it. ...for a while. And then picked up the needle. No pictures as yet but hopefully soon.
Aren't these little balls of Valdani cute?

Oh oh! Well, you seem to have a good attitude about it...good for you! Not only are the Valdani balls cute, but they are gorgeous colors.

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog.

Nice that you can leave the bad stuff behind and just move on. Glad the getaway was fun though. And I can see how fondling those threads could be very calming. They are such beautiful colors.

Have a lovely week end, dear Jackie!

Hi Jackie! Thanks for the comment! You have some wonderful projects going here. I can't wait to see your start on Quakers and Quilts.

Gorgeous cabin in the Smokies! It looks like the perfect getaway.

Oh no! Sorry to read about your LHN disaster. :(

BTW, I loved looking at your pics from vacation. I used to go to the Smokies nearly every year when I lived in Tennessee, but I've not been a single time since moving to California 13 years ago. I miss the beauty there so much!

Sorry you had a Little House disaster. I do love the colors of your new yarns!

Julia said...

So sorry about your little house disaster. You seem to be taking it very well. I'm not so sure i would be so calm.

Uh oh..reminds me of RP's "having a bad poodle tail" day.

Looks like "Valdani" is just what you need. Wonderful colors.

You have such a great project on the go. And the picture with the Valdani threads is so beautiful. Makes me want to pick up my needle and stitch this project as well.
