… so little time. Jenna is coming to Saint John this weekend and we are making arangements to meet. In light of this, I have hung on to Outi’s RR piece to hand deliver it. As well, I have Leslie‘s piece, just arrived from Outi, that I will try to finish and hand deliver as well. The problem? We have house guests coming this weekend and almost every other weekend in August and so I have very little time for house cleaning and prep.
Not that I am complaining. Just about everyone and their dog is coming to visit, and I love every minute of it. It just means I actually have to tidy up somewhat, and that cuts into stitching time.
Anyhoo… moving forward. I have missed a few SBQ’s, so let’s play catch up.
July 3rd, as suggested by Renee:
Do you consider yourself a floss miser?
*knock knock* Hello? Does anyone read this blog? I am pretty sure most of my readers already know this answer. H-E- hockey sticks, YES! I will go right down to the last inch of the floss. I don’t care if it is 30 cents for 120 yards of $30. I am the same regardless.
July 12, as suggested on The Wagon:
What do you love to do that many people hate? What do you hate to do, but do anyway?
I love backstitching. I love the look of it, and since I usually keep it until the very end of a piece, it signals a near finish. How can you not be excited about that? I hate french knots, and attaching beads is only slightly less of a bugger. Yes, they look fantastic, but what a pain!
Let’s see what else is happening? A few more days and I can declare our home nit free. I haven’t seen anything in a week, and after a 12 hour nit picking marathon on Saturday, I have just about had it with the creepy crawlies. If nothing else, this episode has given the girls brand new haircuts, and I have decided to get mine completely chopped off as well. Right now my hair is to the middle of my back, a big mess of grey, black and red with quite a few split ends thrown in for good measure, so it is time. I have chosen this cut. Thoughts?
For a better idea, perhaps the magic of Photoshop will help:
Ok, so that was a little silly. Perhaps one day when I have more time. Or prerhaps when I actually get it cut you will get an idea. Oh – and nix the blonde. No thank you! I haven’t decided if I am going chocolate brown or red.
In other news, I have deleted my blogger … um … blog. It didn’t take long for it to snapped up, either. Apparently it is now fodder for a spamming site. I hope your links have been updated!
(Ok, maybe blonde is the way to go – if you are here, your links have been updated. Non?)
Ok, apparently I haven’t had nearly enough coffee. Or stitching. I am off!
