What on earth is going on? Well, the reason for my absence is two-fold.
The first reason is boring as anything - I have so much freelance publishing work happening that I am "chained" to my laptop working on it and once I am done for the day I do not feel like blogging - boring, I know.
The second reason is the Obsession of the title of this post. Many of my days (not all, I have been out and about doing a few other things, too - but they get in the way of blogging, as well - lol!) since getting back from Roma have been a bit like this:
5 am - get up and start work, work through to about lunchtime
Lunchtime - catch up with a friend (stitchy or otherwise) for lunch
Afternoon - stitch on my Obsession
Late afternoon - a bit more publishing work/cook dinner
Evenings - Obsession time again
So, what is this Obsession?, I hear you ask.
Well, a number of weeks back, I happened to pick up this Mill Hill Kit from my LNS, Lazy Daisy.
For some reason, it really 'spoke' to me, so despite having lots of other WIPs on the go and a number of stitching commitments, I began it and I tell you, I have not been able to put it down since!
I am using a gorgeous 25ct Wedgwood Lugana (sorry, for some reason it is looking a bit washed out in the pics) that I happened to have in my stash - it is a dream to stitch on - and now I am up to the beading. Oh, how I wish that my camera could catch the gleam and sparkle of the beads properly - it is looking so pretty already.
So, that is my confession about my Obsession.
I hope to have a finish by early next week - then Normal Transmission (ie blog posts) will resume, I hope.
Have a great weekend everyone,
I am off to take my Dear Sister 2 to the dentist to have two teeth extracted (one of them an impacted molar - ouch!) shortly but you all know what I would rather be doing! lol!
Love to you all,
