So many projects....

So many projects...so little time! No doubt we are all singing the same song!
If only the speed of my fingers matched the rapid flitting of my attention span...but at least I can dream.
I have just been chatting with one of my oldest & dearest friends & she commented that it had been a few days since my last blog...she is a nonblogger but "lurks" on my blog so she can keep up with life in the cardy household! I then began to think...what have I been doing???????? She had also been to see a movie called "Julie & Julia" where part of the story apparently involves blogging & she thought of me! I think I need to make time to see this movie. Another thing to do!
I have been stitching...but there are some things I cannot show...you know the deal!
But here are some bits & pieces to look at ...


..... Janelle Wind's teacosy from "Tea for Two"....I love it's fresh prettiness.


My poor crabapple...blossoms suffering in the high winds we have at the moment...
I have also been looking at Clare & Robyn's Christmas Ornament swap...very tempted to join in but I need to look at what else I have oming up..I don't like to let people down!
Hopefully some bits will be finished over the weekend to show & share!

I know what you mean about so many projects but so little time. I am becoming a little overwhelmed by the amount that I have on the go and can't seem to find the time at the moment to get some decent stitching time in. That does not include xmas gifts which i really need to start. I really need there to be an extra few hours in the day. Kylie

I am singing that song with you!! So what am I doing on the computer??
I went to the movie Julie and Julia last night-yes it is about blogging (food not quilting!!) and well worth seeing. Meryl Streep is always worth seeing.

Smile. I'm reading Julie and Julia right now. Love your stitching!

Your tea cozy is soooo cute!!! And I have to tell you, your blog header quilt is gorgeous. Is that a quilt of yours? I'd love to see a picture of the whole thing if it is...
