...in particular that is :-)
Thank you all for the bloggy name love and get well wishes on my last post. Not only am I gonna keep the blog name, but I spent the better part of last night trying to spruce it up a little bit around here. Just some little changes, but I hope you like!
Shoulder pain. Oy! I've had a bum shoulder since I was about 14 years old (30 years ago!!). It acts up every now and then. Usually what causes it is my job, which involves counting things (money or paper) the whole time I'm there....it's a part time job, but we pack 8 hours of work into 4 or 5, so it's intense and fast paced. The other thing that doesn't help is that I stitch in hand, and holding the fabric sometimes just aggravates the whole issue. Luckily for me, it comes and goes, it's just that I have to give up stitching completely until it passes.
My friend Patti stitched all of the CHS Virtue series recently and then passed her charts on to me. My plan is to stitch them all together, vertically, and maybe make the finished piece into a bell pull....maybe. Here's the first one, she's not done yet (no stitching for 3 days), but I wanted to share anyway :-)
this is so tiny...less than 2 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches tall. I'm using DMC on 40 ct. Goldfinch...
Oh gosh, on the bloggy love subject, I can't forget that I got some awards recently!
Melissa gave me this one...
and Lynda gave me this....
Thank you both so much!! I am the world's worst about playing along with these, so hope you all can forgive me for being late in saying thanks and for not playin' by the rules. There are just SO many blogs that I love and read and that deserve these awards, if they haven't already gotten them, how can I pick just a few?? But I do appreciate the thought behind receiving them!
Totally random picture....
this past weekend we had GORGEOUS weather, oh my gosh, it couldn't have been more perfect!! Hubby grilled outside, he even grills up extra chicken, etc. so during the week we have it for whatever...nachos, chimi's, salads. And the above was my contribution to the Monday night nachos, lol! We LOVE fresh guacamole with plenty of cilantro, fresh tomatoes, etc. YUM!
It's been gloomy and raining for two days now...you just never know about the weather here in Texas!
One more thing before I quit (if you've stuck with me this far, bless your heart)
Sweet Sue had an idea to start this blog, and I think it's just the sweetest idea! There's no commitments or deadlines...just whenever you feel like spreading some kindness, you can! We need more people to join!! Come on over and play!
