Gimme an A!

Below is my contribution for today's letter of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For more information about the challenge please visit their website http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com. If this is your first visit here from the challenge, I'm embroidering song lyrics for each letter. I'm also participating over at The Occasional Adventures of a Hermit, feel free to check that out too.

It's finally time for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge! Are you excited? I'm excited. It was just over a year ago when I stumbled on the Challenge's site. I figured I had nothing better to do and signed up on a whim. I had so much fun that I doubled down and signed up with two blogs this year and I'm already looking forward to next year's. Of course, none of that would be happening without Arlee Bird who came up with the Challenge. So thank you for creating the Challenge and then sharing it with everyone else.

So when I was picking out the songs that I would embroider lyrics from I knew almost right away that I was going to use Rissi Palmer's "Anybody Out There" for my A. I've had a deep attachment to this song since I heard it the very first time. Every song on Rissi Palmer's self-titled album reaches me in some way.

I'd like to revisit these lyrics in another embroidery. Maybe after the A to Z Challenge is done. I have an idea for them. More art than just words stitched on a piece of muslin.

Song: Anybody Out There
Singer: Rissi Palmer
Album: Rissi Palmer
Writers: Lisa Drew and Shaye Smith
