Is it as hard for you to believe as it is for me that it’s time to fall back from daylight savings time?It’s almost November, which means Thanksgiving will be here shortly – then Christmas!How time just flies these days.
Here’s the update to the NovaLee Christmas Noel that I stitched Friday night with the Let’s Stitch group.
I got a package of charts I’d ordered online in the mail. I just love ‘em, but when in the world will they ever get stitched? So many loves and ideas, so little stitching time…don’t we all feel that way?
The other day on Stitch Bitch, Anna asked us to show what’s in our stitching bag. Well, since I’m evidently not as tidy as Anna, I decided to show what is always at my fingertips beside my stitching chair.Of course there’s the chart, plus these days on 36ct there’s the magnifier glasses, scissors, needles, pins, and threads.I’ve talked about this before, but the thing that keeps me going is to have a thread organizer – this one is what I use most often – made from a painter’s canvas with foam board on top with a list of the thread colors to stick the needle in when it’s time to switch colors.Love it.Don’t have to stop and thread the needle when it’s time to go back to another color.When it is time to travel, stitch night, for example, I grab one of most of these things and drop them into my tote. Of course, a lot of times something’s missing, but most times it turns out fine!
Well, friends, the time has come for me to ask for your positive thoughts – I’m going to quit smoking; again!Made up my mind last week, but had to get the doctor to prescribe some ‘help’, and with Chantix you take it for several days before laying them down.So, Sunday, November 1 I’ll start on the meds, and we’ll see if it works as well as some say.It’s never easy, but I’ve done it before, and what may help is that I’ve had bronchitis for the last several days which makes me smoke less.Another “good thing” is that I’ve never smoked inside my house. If you have success tips to share, please do!
Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I wish you a Spooky and Safe Halloween!
