Step Away From Your Blog!

Aack! I've been "off the grid" for a few days and my bloglines is lit up worse than a Christmas tree! I fear I'll never get caught up on all of your lovely blogs. I'm on business travel, which usually isn't a problem because I can catch up with you in the evenings. But the preparations for the trip and then the weather delays, and just real life got in the way of my addiction.

Storms on the east coast yesterday. I should have had an easy flight from D.C. to Newark last night, but there were ground stoppages (is that a word?) So, I rented a car a drove. I SO wished it had been daylight. I've never been to Delaware (woohoo, check that off my list of the lower 48 states to visit -- only 5 to go to make all 48!) and the short blitz through there looked as though it might be beautiful. I really wanted to see the Delaware Memorial Bridge with the sun -- as I crossed over it, it looked as though it may be huge -- with big supports that reminded me of those on the Golden Gate Bridge. But then it may have been my imagination -- it was dark and rainy, so I'm not sure what was out there.

I've just barely, and I mean just barely, read a few blogs this morning and it looks as though you've all been busy! Summertime activities and sewing! Look at this great new block! I just love Leanne's stuff. And check out Miss Marzie's new apron that Lululollylegs made. They had an apron swap and Miss Marzie made Lululollylegs a fabulous apron too! That's some serious swapping!!!

Unfortunately, I must run to meetings now. You all need to take a break. Go rest for a few days. Give a poor blog reader a break!!! I'll leave you with this wonderful picture of these adorable pincushions that the very clever and funny Vallen sent to me a few days ago. Just because she read that I wanted to start a pincushion collection. Aren't they cute??? Check out the cute little birdie, the nest and that adorable little china cup. Oh so clever! Thank you SO much Vallen -- I just love them all!!!

Remember, you're all resting......
XOXO,
Anna

I know what you mean! If I don't check my google reader for a couple days, I get the (100+) list of unread items. Everyone is just so darn productive and creative!

I have one of Vallen's bird nest cushions as well, aren't they adorable?

Vallen said...

They look good on you. Glad you like them

Wow, Anna--I know how you feel about the blog-reading. Right now I'm caught up, but I know that by mid-summer I'll have fallen behind again! (And I checked at the hospital--they don't have wi-fi in the birth center...)

I have NEVER considered the Delaware Memorial Bridge in the sun any more than "it's just a bridge"...it's a sight I've seen many times and have only taken for granted. Thanks for opening my eyes.

XO,
Jill

I adore those pincushions! Gorgeous ideas.

I love the pin cushions. I've been thinking of adding to my collection. I've got a really old one that is a girl all dressed up holding a spool of thread and her hat is the pin cushion. So adorable. I got it in Dallas when I was living there.

We don't need no stinkin' break! I must keep you laughing... what next?

Blog reading is a full-time job isn't it?! Pincushions are gorgeous. Hope you're getting some rest.

And here I am thinking that you're always on the button with the blog-reading. I'm still trying to catch up after that forced break.

Felicia said...

Welcome back! It is tough to miss blogs when you just know something groovy has happened. :)

Isabelle said...

Yes, me too! A long weekend away and I'm way behind in the important things, like... dusting... no, I don't really mean that. Like blogreading.

I've enjoyed several of yours at once, though. Those recipes look good; tell me that they're very low fat, would you?

You are so right Anna - It's hard to keep up in blogland and there are so many creative people out there that inspire me on a daily basis. If I don't get my fix - well the day isn't complete. Safe traveling
Hugs - Karen
