Week Seven - My small changes

Looking back at my small changes so far this year, my twist on a New Year's Resolution......some changes are for mental health and less stress in my life, some changes are for streamlining workloads, some are for hopes at better health.   So my change this week is to pledge to drink more water.   Silly you may think but my normal total fluid intake for the day is usually 3 or 4 cups of coffee.   Not good for the body functions!   Water does so much for your body on a cellular level, to keep you regular (sorry to go there), to keep your skins clear, and more......in fact I just heard on the news as they were looking at Valentine's Day to do, water healths maintain good breath, as opposed to bad breath!  Who knew?

I do have a finish to share.    I am not sure what I am going to do with it.  

My choices are to stitch this up in a mattress pad finish, or I have been longing to make a floss tag, or, the more likely choice will be to frame it with the others in the series and hang them in my red,white & blue powder room.  Not sure if I will add any buttons to this or not.   It was nice to have something I could pick up and complete quickly.  I like that instant gratification.    This was a nice little purchase from Salty Yarns last May.  Charts and fabric for all three in a neat little package.  Just the right size for a quick pickup and finish.    Even though I could work on my etui top, I am starting the second in the series, the alphabet.

What a cute little Americana finish, Robin--sounds like it would be perfect in your powder room!

Lovely finish! I need to drink more water too- I know I don't drink near as much as I should.

Very cute finish! Those buttons are adorable (even if you decide not to add them)

Lovely little finish. Last year I cut out my coffee and drink heaps of water. I always have a glass full beside me as I stitch. The best thing about it is that it's FREE.
