Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

I picked up my needle...

And what happens? I started a rotation. I have been working on all my projects, as well as one of the Christmas ornaments from last year. I am busy writing as well, but stitching has been a welcome break. I need to catch up on some old e-mail and check my ASU account, but I think I have things going well at the moment.
Grandma, You're so special was started when I was 11, and was relegated to UFO status a while ago. Last year I picked it up again, and I have found it quite fun to look at it and see how my technique has improved.

Farewell Words is being done as a memorial for a dear friend. I put it up when I put up all my stitching, but it is coming along nicely.

This last one is a stocking for Aidan in Needlepoint. It is what I am working on tonight. It makes for a nice change of pace.

Confession: I did not store my projects well. I had to wash 3 of them because they were horribly dirty from sitting beside my chair. The Excavator and Grandma are drying now, and Farewell Words is in an OxyClean soak. It was so bad there was black residue when I drained the water. Grandma looks so much better than the last picture I took of her, though. Maybe if I get these projects done, I can start on a big art project like I want to.
