Hello? Hello!

I got a new phone this week, and so far I love it.  Not that I’m a big phone person – either at home or on the move.  Hardly ever use either, as a matter of fact, well, except periodically at work, but you know – must have one.  Actually the cell phone is a safety issue for me, but I decided I wanted one that would do more than just sit in my purse, so I got a Blackberry Tour.  I know – the latest and greatest, at Verizon at least, is the Droid – all touch business.  Not so much for me.  I wanted a type pad, to have access to spreadsheets, email if possible, and oh, by the way, phone capability.  Have you looked at them recently?  So many gadgets and gizmos to choose from – it’s not easy to pick! 

I signed up for Camp Stitch Away this week.  It is the last weekend in March in Little Switzerland, North Carolina.  It’s sponsored by my LNS, The Stitch and Frame Shop, so hop over to take a look at the details if you like.

I’ve had a nice stitching week – which means I haven’t done much else around the house, but then do I ever? 

There were a couple of evenings with Lizzy*Kate’s Alphabet Lessons.

Wanted to stitch up another little ornie, so I chose Love, a freebie from The Stitcherhood, on a scrap using Gentle Arts limited edition, Lady Bug.

I joined the Little House Needleworks Monthly Ornament Stitch-A-Long Blog, Too group, so I’ve got to get on the ball with these!  This is the almost completed Fa La La.  I'll finish that up today, and move along to something...

It's chilly and dreary here today.  Aren't there just some days when you don't even want to get out of bed?  Just ask Pixie!

d Happy Stitching!



  1. Isn't it amazing what a phone can do these days. I recently got a new one and had to have my kids help me figure it out! LOL They know everything.

    Your stitching looks great. Looks like you've gotten a lot done this week!!! And heck - don't worry about the cleaning - it's always there waiting for you so let it wait another day...or two....of three!!

  2. Nice stitching, Charlene. I especially like the Fa La La. It's chilly and grey here, but we had to get up to go to an all day choir workshop with lots of fa la la-ing. LOL

  3. Ooh - love the new phone! Pixie looks quite comfortable. :)
    Stitching looks great!

  4. Lovely stitching, Charlene! Congrats on the new phone. The back fell off of my cell phone after 2 years of use, so I got an iPhone. I love it! It is addictive, though--I love being able to check my mail wherever!

  5. ooh - nice new phone! and some nice stitching going on as well. I hope you enjoy your weekend in March- that location looks stunning.

  6. I am nearly finish stitching Love when i realise i miscounted one stitch on the word so i put it aside, hope to finish it this week though. Good progress on the Lk and LHn WIP's.

  7. I just want a phone that makes phone calls - because there are no payphones left between work & home, should I need one :)

    Great stitching - I love the Fa La La La!

  8. Just found your blog. LOVE your stitching! Looks like we are in a couple of SALS together this year. You do great stitching!

  9. Wow How many SAL's are you doing?! How about loaning me one of your turbo needles?
    Love the new phone and the 400 page manual that goes with it! LOL

    Can't wait to see you at camp!
    Stay warm & cozy...
