Flutterby

I forgot to wash my hair last night.  I didn't realize that it was Wednesday yesterday.  So today I went and got my hair trimmed and the salon washed it for me.  Cool.  What was weird at the salon was that all the other customers were men. 

This is where I am on the Alison Cole butterfly.

I got all around the outside edge and now I have to do long and short stitch in the middle.  I'm not very good at it so I have been avoiding it. 

Two things have influenced me lately.  A well known FlossTube person has just decided not to do videos anymore.  And a very dear friend of mine has some serious medical issues.  This has caused me to re-evaluate what is important.  I am not sure that I wish to continue this blog.  I have many kind readers but I have to do what is best for me.  So I thank you for reading and commenting and for your help in my dilemmas. 
I wish you all the best.

  2. I love seeing the steps and progress of the projects you do because it inspires me to try stitching items that I might not have considered before. So I want to thank you for the time you have taken to stop and photograph your beautiful stitching and then taking the time to share it with us online. I thank you for that! Happy walking!

  3. It has been a joy to follow all your projects and your life and was great to actually meet you on the casket tour in England, mornings for me in New Zealand will not be the same, as reading your blog has always been a highlight. Continue to enjoy your stitching and thank you again for the years of sharing your stitching journey.

  11. I so enjoy your blog and look forward to seeing your progress every day even if you do make me look lazy. I feel as if you are my friend even tho we have never met. However, I realize that it takes a lot of time on your part that you could spend doing other things. Maybe you could try posting once or twice a week. Whatever you decide, thanks for all the inspiration and encouragement you have given us and the best of luck in your future endeavors --- but I REALLY want to see your finished casket!

  12. I enjoy reading your blog every day. I can't remember if I've ever even commented. I'm in awe of your "jump in and do it" philosophy. You have something to contribute to the world of stitching via blogging so I hope you don't stop.

    Who is quitting Flosstube? :(

  14. I’m so sad to hear you won’t be blogging anymore. I read your blog daily and look forward to your posts. I’m always sad to hear another flosstuber is not making videos. Who is it?

  17. I always enjoy and look forward to your entries. I realize what a sacrifice it is/was to do this daily, and have to thank you. I don't think I commented before, but like other commenters, appreciated your "can do" atitching attitude and will miss your enabling. I learned so much from you. Hope to hear from you occasionally - thank you again.

  19. We met at EGA classes in Indianapolis a couple of years ago and I have been following you ever since. You have inspired me to stretch my stitching abilities and try other techniques. I marvel at all that you accomplish! But I have always wondered how you do it all. Maybe, once the baths are clean and your walking is done, you can check in now and then? I know you will astonish us with all that you have done! I neither blog nor make Flosstube videos and I have no LNS so I depend on the internet to fed my stitching frenzy! If you decide not to blog any longer, you will be missed.

  20. I'm sorry to hear about your friend. However, I hate it that the internet trolls have partially caused you to stop blogging. I know you have to do what is best for you, but it feels like the trolls win and the stitching community loses. Your blog has been such an inspiration. Best wishes.
