If sheer determination counted for anything, I would be a petite blond triathlete and would have my very own line of "stitch wear" clothing for the "active needlewoman lifestyle". I am so determined not to let this *%$&@# computer get the best of me that it took me all of the morning to figure out how to get the pic out of the camera and onto this here screen. Must. Press. On. Must. Not. Let. Silly. Technology. Kill. My. Will. To. Live.

But I regress....

Here's last night's stitchy progress on the DebBee's "Diamond Delights III". I finished the inner border and started on the fern stitches in the outer. These ferns are done in Kreinik, and I have to confess that I'm not hating it. (Note to self: check status of Kreinik stash and consider buying more.)

Chrissy and I watched the Notre Dame game and then had the First Annual Stitchin' Spinster Sisters John Travolta International Film Festival. We started with "Grease" and then progressed to "Saturday Night Fever". We only got about fifteen minutes into "Staying Alive" before Chrissy called it quits and went home. Now, despite the fact that I am a relatively "normal" and pop-culturally aware 42-year old person, I confess to never having seen "Saturday Night Fever" or "Staying Alive". I was a bit captivated by the white suit, but totally went right over the edge with the longer hair and chiseled jaw line of "Staying Alive". I did manage to hit the "record" button because Chrissy promises me that there is a loin cloth involved. (I'll watch later when I have sufficiently calmed down from my morning computer tizzy-fit.) May I just say....Mr. Travolta, you are indeed what this spinster needed on a cold autumn evening. Woo Hoo!


  1. Wow, that sounds like a perfect evening, except I am an only child and none of friends cross-stitch. Sounds like the two of you had a good time.

  2. Love those colors!

    ...... and great for you not to let yourself defeated by technology :-)

    From what I read, you sure seemed to have had a great time (grinning)

    Pierrette =^..^=

  3. Hi Coni,

    Glad to hear that you aren't letting the technology win! :-)

    Love the progress on "Diamond Delights III"!

  4. John Travolta is OK in his younger years (I'm thinking specifically of Danny Zucco (sp??), but now, not so much.

    When I want to watch my "crush" - I'm happily married and wouldn't change a thing about him, but I'll admit I have a harmless movie star crush - I opt for "Singin' in the Rain" or "An American in Paris" or "Cover Girl" or "The Pirate"...and just sit there and stare (drool) over the wonderful Gene Kelly. *sigh*
