As of a few moments ago, we're back in the saddle again, kids!  I restored my home internets, declared the experiment an epic fail, and then kissed my little iPad right on the face as I sat at the dining room table in my pajamas reading email.

Ahhhhh, the familiar.  Balm to the soul of this crazypants portly little spinster.

Miss Louise taught us blackwork last night at EGA.  When completed, this will be my official name tag:
isn't it swell?  I would love to tell you that I took to it like a fish to water all on my own, but the quality of the teaching was so excellent that I was able to follow along and learn quite easily.  It helped that I was trying my level best to impress and keep up with Miss Margaret and Miss Katie....all that pressure forced me to keep my mouth shut and concentrate.

For once.

So today's view from the dining room table is soothing and happy.  As soon as I finish my coffee and puzzles I'm heading out for labwork and then right back to the Happy Chair for some cable TeeVee binge watching.  I've got weeks and weeks of Housewives and Kardashians to catch up with.  Wonder how they managed to survive without me?

Here's hoping that everything is happy and connected in your neck of the woods!  Stewey sends his love and kisses and promises an update and analysis of the last few weeks here at Chez Spinster.  Stay tuned....it promises to be interesting!


  1. Woo Hoo! Here's to good lab results.

  2. I agree with RipIt!! Everytime I see your projects I remember why I used to needlepoint
    (and will again): the colors both themselves and the way they blend and,also, play off each other. Color is reason for living, for me. Thanks Coni for sharing your projects with us. Both in progress and the big fin-ee

  4. Your EGA outing sounded super, Coni. Looking forward to seeing your finished name tag! Hope you had good lab results today.

  5. Pretty! I love the rainbow colors :)

  6. That's going to be a great name tag!

  7. you're a braver woman than I. I wouldn't last 1 minute without being connected to the internet. :)

  8. At least you said you tried. I would never even try because I would never make it, even with the little bit of TV I do watch. Your name tag is going to be great. Love the bright colors.
