Question of the week.

Do I think Cross Stitch Requires Patience?

I think I'd say no. I'm normally not a patient person, and yet I cross stitch. I do find it takes attention to detail, perseverance, and committment.

Can't Believe Tomorrow is September

Next week Bill will be back in school, and Jeremy will be back in Day Care. I'm not looking foward to dropping him off that first morning. I'm thinking he may start crying which just breaks my heart. Once he's there he has loads of fun, and has lots of friends. My other concern is last year he was so sick, flue, colds, 2 ear infections. The Day Care attempted to blame me (not enough vitamins) after talking to my local Pharamist I went back to the Day Care, and asked how often they washed the toys....surprise surprise there were no more comments made to me. Jeremy continued to get sick though....go figure. Plus we discovered with the last ear infection that there is a good chance he is allergic to Antiboitics. Oh what fun. I'm going to be trying garlic ear drops on a regular basis this year to try and prevent ear infections.

Well still not back working on the model I should be working on. Finished part of my piece for a RR that has a mail out date by tommorrow. Gees I need to get busy. I need to find an alphabet tonight so all can sign their square, stitch mine, and then get it ready to mail out tomorrow.

Feeling Almost The Same

The best thing I can say about today is that’s its Thursday. This means tomorrow is FRIDAY! I’m slowly starting to get out of this funk. I hope it doesn’t last for long, because I don’t like how I act when I feel in a funk. Bill’s friend from school is moving out here from Edmonton. He was here this week looking for apartments. He’s going to be moving into our building. It will be a good thing I think. As they can very easily get together to study. We can have him over for dinner, videos etc, so he doesn’t get too lonely. He doesn’t have any family out here. Not only that Bill doesn’t have many close friends out here so this will be good for him.

I did jack squat as far as stitching goes…..lol. My stomach was upset last night so I just curled up on the couch for the evening as per Bill’s suggestions. I did feel slightly guilty, but I wasn’t feeling well. My stomacher seems better today so I’ll hopefully get some stitching done tonight.

Just Not Feeling Like Myself....

I'm just feeling out of sorts with myself the last couple of days. I think part of it may be the weather. We've gone from very hot (in the 90's), and sunny to rainy, and cool. I think it is affecting my mood :-( Got home last night, and the Laundry was not done. UG! Bill was home all afternoon he could have done it, but waited for me. Lovely. NOT. So that added to my mood last night. Work this morning don't even get me started. Men being men & all of that.

I'm getting some really good progress on my UFO RR. I can't believe it's over. It has been the most unstressful RR I've been in. OK I've only been in two (including this one), but it was great. We are doing a second round. This time it will be a theme RR, and a ufo RR. We'll see how that goes. I hope we do a third round, and if we do I want it to be a UFO one again.

It's been so long

I can't believe my last post was in July.

End of August upon us. Bill entering his last year of school with a job offer for when he is done this is good news! Means another move to Alberta at some point. Jeremy will be 4 in September I can't believe it. I'll be planning a party for a few of his friends.

Question of the week.
What would you most like your favourite designer to design next?

I think I would like my favorite designer (Teresa Wentzler) to next design something to do with the Greek Muses, more samplers and Dragons.

Finished Tempest, and TW's Beginner White Work Ornie both are in my album.

Rotation has gone right out the window the last couple of weeks. I'm going to allow myself to stitch willy nilly & then next week get back to my rotation. My model has been neglected lately. Plus I have two RR's to get ready for that have a mail date of September. Busy lady.
