B+O+R+I+N+G....



That's me! Nothing new and exciting here. I'm stitching Christmas Ornaments for my SSNES project. Only another half dozen or so to go! No new decent photos of those. I have been working 12+ hours each day, so the only stitching time I have is weekends and I would much rather clean floors, toilets and showers, cook, grocery shop, do laundry and sleep than I would stop to take pictures... yeah right....


Saw this while surfing the stitching newsletters that had accumulated in my in box the past several weeks. Think I will make it my new mantra:



Halloween night, Golden Needle had a special sale and Halloween party. I bought new stash! I came home with the Family Reunion chart and the linen to stitch it on (Platinum Cashel). Also, I'm not 100% sure I'm happy with my Quaker Friendship Sampler fabric choice, so I bought another piece of linen to stitch it on and another fiber option, Thread Gatherer Silk 'N Colors Acorn Woods. I'm debating now. I also purchased Something Wicked by La-D-Da. We got to draw a sucker for a special discount, I got a 10% discount and a special gift, a beaded scissor fob and counting pin by "Bead-utiful". It was a fun evening.

Sad news this week. My former employer and dear friend to both of us, Dr. LJ Jensen passed away on Thursday. Rest in peace Dr. J. You will be greatly missed.



Thanks for stopping by. I'm going back to my stitching!
Stay safe!

Hope you are able to find more time to stitch. Love that new motto. My thing is "if I don't stitch, I become a bitch". There is truth in that.

Will get you cookbook in the mail after Tuesday when I am working on the election board.

As you obviously prefer the household chores to stitching, how about you come visit me. You can do my household chores while I stitch! LOL
