This week I made it a point to carve out stitching time. It is not an option! I am a much happier person if I stitch everyday, even if it is only 15 stitches. I think I could have worse addictions, right?
I finally got around to ordering the four charms - Celtic Knots - for my finished Love and Wisdom Sampler by Drawn Thread. This piece has been done for a few months but I am never one to hurry. I have a coupon for 50% off framing at Joanne's and thought I give them a try. My framer has closed his Delaware shop and it would be about 3 to 4 hours round trip to get to him....which is not doable on a lunch hour. Speaking of Joanne's I had to get a separating zipper to replace a broken one in my husband's "fuzzy man" jacket as he calls it and look what else I got! I am a big fan of the reusable store totes. I often embarrass my kids and friends with my insistance on using them but isn't this just the cutest? Of course since they put them at the checkout, one jumped into my cart. This will now be my standard craft shopping tote whether shopping or carrying a project to my daughter's. Check out the handle that looks like a tape measure. People are too too clever.
While checking out my spider plant, I took a shot of my orchids......
I have a flower coming. First I wasn't fertilizing the orchids, then I think I was fertilizing them too much and hopefully I have gotten it to the right balance. I'd better not get too confident until I actually see the flower. I have it on good authority from a fellow orchid growing that the little stem sticking out like a "y" to the right is indeed a flower.
|Ha ha! the close up doesn't necessarily show the messy stitches.|
