I have been stitching… but not yesterday. And not Fairy Idyll; I’m barely holding onto concentration with the Captain.
Mum has been hospitalised again, she has another lung infection.
The kids decided they were bored. This is not helpful. I want to shake them & point out their time with Grandma is severely limited but of course, I can’t do that.
Oh. I’m so tired but my hamster brain didn’t want to get off the wheel. I’m making mistakes, so I’ve taken a leaf from Measi’s book & allowed myself some grace & a “cheat” day.
Here’s a q I asked way back in July 2015 for WIPocalypse.
Question of the Month
What makes you pick up a long-abandoned UFO rather than beginning a new piece? (this question comes to us via Paula)
I’m still struggling with finishing some of my pieces. The Tapestry Cat languishes still even tho I would have easily another 20 TW designs on the shelf. I’ve over 80 Mira or Nora charts, all the JCS Christmas designs & still I go “oooh, shiny” when something new catches my eye.
How do you finish something before moving onto the next thing? What tips can you give me?
No cross stitching today, but I did sew a web and spiders onto my dress…
We went to the Cure Kids fundraising quiz run by one of our store teams. Doug won best dressed, but I think Simon’s make up made him look very drained.. so well done me.
Side note was the humour in #masetheace practically crap himself trying to get away from my spiders 🕷
A migraine day… not much done at all. The new meds allow me to be semi-functional but not in control of things like cars, kids, needles…i couldn’t remember the next stitch so had to check each one two or three times. Slow.
In the interest of being accountable, here’s week two weight loss. So pleased to be able to say it was a loss, as I had a bad cold that interfered, didn’t eat all the planned things, did eat birthday cake.
Total kms walked was 34.4.
So here in NZ there’s a media group looking at more than just teh academic profile of schools. Stuff sent semi-comedian Guy Williams (the add-in of the Jono & Ben show, it’s well worth looking up some of their clips on You Tube) to Swanson School – Mase’s school!
Can’t say that I disagree with young Nixon’s view of our current PM; and Charlotte’s view of the world is pretty cool too. And Oshiana’s parents must have shed a wee tear.
I’m adding more base files to my Stash Cache page. Mostly Mira/Nora’s because I have a bit of downtime here at work.
Feel free to download and use for yourself; or if you want me to create a file specifically for you, let me know & I’ll help out where I can.
This is the school Mase attends; I love the attitudes of the teachers and he’s thriving. One of our better decisions to send him here!
I haven’t stitched many L*K designs, but I have a few (cough cough) on my Wish List. I saw this on Alice’s weekly round-up and pounced on it. It’s really interesting! Thanks Alice for high-lighting it.
