Not one single thing got purged, packed, or organized yesterday, but I'm still standing.  My coordinator from IU called and asked if I could get to the lab for a test that they forgot last week, so after a shower and shoes, I was on my way.

Then, it was such a pretty day that I decided to get a little fresh air, so I drove a bit and walked a bit and came home for a long nap with my face in the sun.

I did, however, manage to stitch a little last night on Poppers:

The colors of this are so bright and cheery, and the little happy dances after each block are a great source of a little extra exercise, win win all around!  I've now completed 10 rows out of 24 total, so...almost halfway there!

Grocery Guild tonight and then appointments the rest of the week, so I really should get something accomplished.  I want to get all of my clothes and shoes over to St. Margaret's House (a women's day shelter) and books to Better World Books before the week gets much older!  

Here's hoping that your Tuesday is wonderfully swell!  WooHoo!


  1. Okay, so I got the Snap needlework frames (with extensions) and ordered the Poppers pattern, and I'm ready to go! Your projects are very inspiring, and I can't wait to start mine. I thought this one would be good to learn techniques.

    Also, I'm glad that you are having a good day. It's such a long process, you need these as many of these days as possible to keep marching forward. Enjoy this day and take good care of yourself.

  2. Really loving this project! Take your time to enjoy each day.

  3. Yippee!
    Coni you accomplish so much!
    I finished my beautiful Sea blue print blouse yesterday. It's taken me a few weeks to do a simple sleeveless princess seam blouse,something I used to complete in a day two tops. 😕I've decided to wear it mini
    Grocery shopping later today. I may need to raise the armhole area an inch or so I'll decide once I have it on with the correct lingerie.😋 The buttonholes we're a trial as the machine wasn't behaving the way it should so I had to cheat
    And use a tiny zigzag. I know I could have rethreaded one of my other machines but too lazy
    Your Poppers are coming along nicely the stitches & colors are beautiful. Hope your day is filled with love, joy & much sunshine.

  4. Your stitching is so great. Love this project. The colors are so vibrant! I need to get the project out and get started. I just have to remember where I put it.

  5. WTG Coni! Just love this colorful poppers! I like your tone. Keep up the good work. Love, hugs & prayers, Cathryn
