These are from a company in Canada called DIYMandalaStones, and I can't wait to learn how to use them. I also have a set coming from Australia from the Happy Dotting Co, but methinks they won't be here for a little while yet. But I will be able to have some fun today with these, so woooooohoooooo!
I have promised myself some stitchy time tonight while Notre Dame tries to beat Duke in the ACC tournament. Is it wrong that I felt bad that they beat Va Tech last night because I like Jessie Marie from Jessie Marie Does Stuff on the Flosstube so much? This thing of ours makes it difficult to hope for a sound beating of the opponent, no?
Dr. Melfi and I are going to talk about how I can find my "quiet" again. I am fighting the fact that my quiet happy peaceful still life seems to have been blown to smithereens lately and I'm finding it hard to breathe. I basically went from a hermit spinster with a soft little dog and her stitching for company 24/7 to...chaos. Some of the chaos is quite lovely (like my Jersey Boy and all of his shenanagins), but other parts have me feeling a bit claustrophic. I think my schedule needs to retool a bit and there needs to be a minute or two each day for me to get quiet again.
(I suppose in analagous terms...I am an enormous sea turtle who has been out of her shell a bit too long and her heiney is feeling a little chapped from all of the fresh air and sunshine. Time to get back in there and de-peopleize myself for a bit!)
(Holey Schmoley...am I a complete nutball, or what?!)
(Nope...reframing...I am not a nutball. I am just a person who feels better in her Happy Chair.)
See? Even my ponderings are all over the place. Time to re-tool.
Ha! Like how I did that! A complete circle!
Ciao for now, Dearies! Hope your very own Thursday is exactly how you like it...whether that means the raucous activity of a whole boatload of peoples, or complete quiet with needle and thread. Enjoy and come tell me all about it!
