Glory Bee, Shepherd's Bush, Acorn House Designs, & Carousel Charts

For someone who is currently unemployed, you'd think I would be able to update this blog more often! Job-hunting is a tiresome process, however, and this stuffy computer room is the last place I want to spend more time in then I have to on such a glorious day. I don't want to disappoint the masses though, so here is a sampling of what's new this week in cross stitch.

I hope to make it back again tomorrow, but I can't make any promises if we have yet another warm and sunny day. Hope it's gorgeous weather where you are too!
