In honour of my blog-anniversary, I switched my old template into the new blogger page layout. Why? Just because.
I've been adding labels to my older posts & over-all think I've got the blog updated nicely. I may go over them one more time to edit mistakes; however, I like the simpler look & have gotten used to the page layout from my Stitches of Life II blog.
I would like to add the google reader feature or bloglines ... or something to keep track of all the wonderful stitching updates. My on-line time seems to be diminished this Summer. Perhaps when the boys are back in class [August] and our routine changes, I'll have more computer time.
Now, I'm back to stitching .... Those fair entries won't stitch themselves : )
I added a few more leaves into the lower right corner. Wasn't able to get many stitches in last night. The cloth is very close in color to DMC 3042 [I forget who asked me that question].
As for the question re. the box on my desk: I found this box at Hobby Lobby - priced at $1.99, on 66% off sale. I like the glass inserts -- it is nice for my thread winders & perle cotton balls. There is a glass top & sides -- bottom is wooden. They are in the aisle with the unfinished wooden pieces.
