I think I might be getting carried away

I'm still embroidering around here. This is my latest FO. The original picture can be seen here. This is part of my airstream fantasy series. I'm thinking I will either frame them both, or turn them into pillows. I envision them backed with vintage barkcloth and pom-pom trim. I think the retro theme would carry through quite well.

Tara, my friend from Days Missed on a Hammock, graciously awarded me this award. 

The rules...1. Please put award on your blog. 2. Add link to the person who awarded you. 3. Nominate 7 fellow bloggers for this award. 4. Add links to recipient. 5. Leave a comment so the recipients know they have received an award.

It's so difficult to name a few out of the many blogs I visit regularly, but here goes...

Bad Mom - a new friend that I discovered recently. I was surfing the net on m husband's Blackberry the other night while waiting for the movie and I was laughing so hard at some of her posts that I was in tears. Funny, funny girl.

Firefly Hill Style - we've been visiting each other's blogs almost since the beginning. She makes lovely handbags and is having some wonderful travels with her family this summer.

Jillian's Pages - a beautiful redhead with a penchant & eye for antiques. She launched her online boutique, Bella Rosa Antiques, this spring. Today she's featuring a nest of baby rabbits (my all time favourite animal) on her blog.

Juggling Life - she & some other ladies held their inaugural BitchHer Event, San Diego's new alternative to BlogHer 2008. Makes me want to move to San Diego. Not that I didn't have that idea before.

Miko Design - she screenprints beautiful textiles and sews them up into lovely bags, tops, and other items. She regularly posts beautiful pictures of her garden and family. Makes me want to visit the Netherlands.

My Diary of Domestic Hiss - wonderful stories about her life and family in Britain. Definitely a kindred spirit. I'm so glad I recently discovered her blog.

Roman Sock - this lady crochets the most wonderful creatures. Even better, she shares many of the patterns for FREE on her blog. I'm trying to make the meerkat for my husband.

Thanks so much!

And I totally puffy heart your embroidery. When I was a kid I used to hang out in a fantastic needleworks shop in Santa Monica. I mostly did cross-stitch, but also some embroidery. It's one the enjoyable pasttimes that's fallen by the wayside with a very busy life. Someday I'll take it up again.

Stephanie - I don't call her Bad Mom around here - is even funnier in the flesh.

I kid you not. She is sharp.

That is the cutest thing! My parents used to have an airstream... but it lost it's magic when we lived in it for several months while our house was being built. Yikes.

Thank you so much for the award - especially when blogging is tricky in the holidays....I was wondering about having a little break too, but missed it after a few days....I might just have to be a weekly blogger for a while!

Your embroidery is gorgeous - I too have a thing about Airstream - I fantasize about having one at Glastonbury!
