No stitching today!

I did not have any stitching time today!  Instead I met with the Grand Valley ANG chapter!  What a wonderful group of ladies!  They asked me in to talk about blogging.  I admitted to blogging since 2006, which is far back as I can find in my records.  I also surprised myself by finding that information and how many posts there have been.  We talked about available free blog platforms, some things to include on the blog....and some to not disclose.  I found that the destashing blog started in 2008 with my downsizing my own stash. This lead to downsizing for friends and then rippled outward.  We talked about the information available by starting with one blog and moving to another and finding everyone else's blog list.  This however can lead to a lost day!  LOL  They were having a silent auction and I won a darling piece which you will see in the future!  I look forward to spending more fun time with this great group of gals!  Thanks for asking me!

The rest

Lesson one is all done.  I finished all of E by working in the overdyed and 3 floss colors.  I added Kreinik to the base of each of the leaf patterns.  I added the beads to section A and C.  I also removed A & C from the other side.

C & D

Pattern C and D are both finished....more of the floss and a bit of Kreinik here and there.  I realized I had assumed that both sides would be the same....not so!  I will take the other side pattern stitches out tomorrow before I start on E.
