Christmas Pinkeep Ornament

I think I have my stitching mojo back again. My neuromuscular dental appt is not until Wednesday, but I have had some BowenWork done and my muscles are relaxing a bit now from having the fascia lifted from damaged areas. At the very least, I guess I am just coping better... So, I have been busy stitching ornaments. Why ornaments? They are something I can actually use and are still small... this year, I think I will be back to samplers too! Anyhow, here is one I finished off yesterday - I generally take photos outdoors for better color, but there is a little snow on my porch and, therefore, no place to put this to take the picture... I managed to get at least this shot...

I am saddened to say that I am so disappointed in some former blogger friends. Safe enough to write here, they do not read my blog any longer. Some folks just don't have what it takes to be open and honest with other people.... and do not mind hurting feelings in the process. Very glad I am a better person than that.

Nice finish Carol. Very sorry some people have hurt your feelings, I have been reading your blog for several years and can't imagine what they have to complain about. We all have to deal with other issues in our lives than take precedence over stitching that's for sure.

Susan said...

I agree with Jeanne - everyone has things going on in their life, and they may not be turning out blog posts every day, but how difficult is it to keep a blog URL in your reader on the chance that a blogger is able to come back to their blog?

{{{hugs}}} to you Carol - I hope the appointment on Wednesday goes well. Please keep us posted!

I love your finish!

Your ornament finish is very sweet.

So sorry about whatever happened with your former blogger friends...true blogging friends (like all true friends) are hard to come by.

I hope all goes well for you on Wednesday.

Lovely ornament, and glad to hear your mojo is coming back. I've been lurking on your blog since you were stitching the Medieval Town Mandala (I was stitching it too at the time, but I wasn't a blogger yet). Without being a "blogging friend" since I've only ever left a comment or three, I've had absolutely no problem keeping your blog in my Reader and checking out any new post - as Susan remarked, just how hard is that??? (puzzled) On the bright side, I'm glad that you seem to still have lots of friends, judging from the amount of comments here :-)

I am so glad to hear that you're feeling a little better now. It does wonders for the stitching mojo I see! Your ornament is very pretty. I love the beaded hanger.

I hope things go well for you at the doctor appointment. I'll be thinking about you.

I'm sorry to hear that some of your former blogging friends have disappointed and hurt you. Take heart in the number of us who still care and will be here for you.

Sally said...

A lovely finish Carol.

I hope your appointment goes well. Keeping you in my thoughts.

I'm so sorry to hear that some of your former blogging friends have upset you. {{{hugs}}} I keep your blog in my reader so that I can keep up with your blog whenever you feel well enough to post. I may not always comment but I do read. I don't know what these people have a problem with!

Valentina said...

I'm so glad your stitching mojo is back! In the past years your stitching has been so inspiring for me, I've decided to stitch things after I saw yours, like Paradigm Lost. I can't wait to be inspired by you again!!!

Berit said...

Beautiful ornament; glad your appointment is coming up!

Alarmed by mysterious report about online "friends".

Marjo said...

Hope your appointment takes care of your problem so you can get back to stitching. Looks like you have made a great start with that ornament. Great finishing job.
