Please excuse the lack of stitching, knitting, crafting or even blog-updating lately. I am totally obsessed with the 2012 European Gymnastics Championships taking place in Brussels, Belgium this week. The fact that I finally have a hi-speed Internet connection has made the obsession even worse. Hours of downloading not only gorgeous photos (these by the artist Grace Chiu ) but the multitude of VIDEOS out there has consumed hours of my time. Well, not the numerous hours it took before on dial-up. I never thought I could be so enamoured of a piece of modern technology. As a coach and judge this is just priceless for me. To be able to see these routines moments after they occur.....OK, maybe you have to be a total gymnastics geek to appreciate this. Anyway, enjoy these lovely photos while I go back to watch some more of the competition.
