The Case Of The Missing Blogger

That would be me, star of this Nancy Drew-sounding blog post.  Where have I been?  Here!  Just doing what I always do.  Except for the fact that I haven't been doing much in the way of stitching and crafting lately.  I have been organizing the craft room though.  It's on ongoing project and I'm very happy with the results.  I'll post pictures of the awesome neatness of it all when I'm done.

Mark and I did go away for Mother's Day last weekend.  We went to the Brasstown Valley Resort in Young Harris, GA for brunch and then stayed there on Sunday night.  What a nice place, all nestled in the mountains.  We also went to the top of Brasstown Bald, which, (depending on who you talk to) is the highest mountain in Georgia.  Then a little visit to the Crane Creek Vineyard was in order.  All in all, a pleasant little trip.
Even though I haven't devoted much time to stitching, I still accomplished a little.  Or maybe a lot, because it's a finish!
Let's celebrate!  "Red, White and Bloom" is finished!  Now, to frame it or make it into a little pillow?  What do you think?

The funny thing is that I only have one project going now.  Time for a new start or two, right?

It's the end of the school year and many parents are contemplating what to get for their kids' teachers.  Sheila used her powers of craftiness to create these beautiful necklaces.
Wow, what teacher wouldn't be delighted to receive one of these? 

So that's it for now.  Coming up in future blog posts, and staying with the Nancy Drew theme:  The Craft Room Caper and The Case Of The Sneaky Stitch Starter.  OK, those probably won't be the titles of my posts, but they give you the idea of what's to come here at CraftyCat.
