We have all been horrified by the tragic events at the Sandy Hook School. Here is a link to make a small contribution to an effort to welcome back the entire school.
A couple of Saturdays ago my LNS, Stitch and Frame, had their holiday drop in. At checkout there was a drawing for a percentage off. My pick was 15% - WooHoo! I got several pieces of linen, a LHN ornament, and a few miscellaneous tools and supplies. THEN I had my birthday discount – which is 20%. I got Eliza Scattergood with her linen and silks – Paulette’s Plum Street Sampler designs always appeal to me.
Here’s my recent stitching update: The first of CHN Santa’s Village, Santa’s House, is stitched. One little change – the smoke from the chimneys from white to blue/gray DMC 169, and I chose not to use the button, but rather stitched the star. Today I picked up the second in the series, Poinsettia Place. I also finished Bah, Humbug by Sue Hollis Designs. It was a gift, and Edgar seemed very pleased.
Isn’t age a funny thing? On my birthday I didn’t feel any different than I did yesterday. Maybe that’s why when asked my age, there’s a noticeable pause while I calculate. A day or so before, we were having a group/staff luncheon and the room is typically used with a TV and camera for distance meetings, etc. I glanced up and happened to catch a glimpse of myself at a different angle, and I thought, who is that woman. To me this means I need some sort of change in appearance – I don’t look like I feel.
I have made the decision not to participate in the TuSAL anymore since I have usually been late if remembering at all. I will continue to save my Orts in the glass ornaments which started in 2008. When you’re flying through your list of blogs, do you notice the tab / pages the owner has? Lots of times there are sale pages, tutorials, as well as other things of interest to the owner. As with my yearly finishes, there will be an Orts tab if anyone really wants to see them.
Thanks for stopping by, today and always. I appreciate your thoughts and comments!
Wishing you and your loved ones a joyous season!
I'm grateful for a new washer and dryer !
