Blogging is hard when your hands are tied up with floss

Howdy all! As you can tell I started working on my Told in a Garden chart. One amish man down (he says "what up") - 3 amish ladies, 1 amish baby, 1 amish tree, an amish house, and six quilts left to go! Moving right along. HA!

I also started working on a new K+IC chart on Monday. I recently joined Curves (which is awesome by the way) and when I went in on Monday there was a flyer up announcing that Mall Day is on Dec 15. So ladies that work out at Curves, that also have home businesses, get a day to peddle their wares. Most of it is just Avon and insurance but I figured that it would be a great opportunity to get something of mine out there into the world. So I came right home and started working on a Curves-themed chart. The basics are finished, I'm picking up my floss today after my workout, and I'm going to start stitching the model as soon as I can. So on Mall Day I'll bring the finished, framed x-stitch, a bunch of charts, and some business cards (which I still have to make) and see how they go over. I'm just going to give them away - publicity for my Etsy shop. When I finish all the final tweeks I'll post the chart here and you can stitch it too. Rock!

And you'll be happy to know that amongst all this craziness I finished something!! My first over-one attempt - and my first K+IC chart - The Frenchman is done!

But, of course, if you know me you know I can't sit still and empty handed for longer than a few hours. After all, I can't frame and hang Louis Dog until his counterpart[ner in crime], Boh Kitty, is finished. May I present... the Lioness.

Hi Kate!! your fans miss you! What are you working on these days? Was it hard to make the chart for the Frenchman? How did you do that? Did you start with a picture of him?
