Here we are on the first Futzingday of the year. I was sitting here in the d-chair wrestling with Come Tarry when I thought to myself..."Gee, this sure is being futzy today!" when it occured to me that it is, after all, the perfect day for it to be so.

I suspect that part of the problem is that I made a few counting errors when I installed the outlines of the hills, so everything after that is off too. So I frogged a bit and put the river in, so now we'll see if that does the trick.

Last night was quiet and a wonderful start on Nova:

This one will be a long term piece, that much I know for sure. It was nice to play with canvas again, and especially nice to use all DMC and Anchor floss. Easy peasy!  

I know that I'm not the only one thinking that today is Monday. The holidays seem to have thrown all of us into a bit of tizzy in these here parts. My pod mates and I keep thinking it's Monday and that we should be doing our weekly labs, but those were done on Sunday. Which was really a Monday.

Good grief!

So any way you look at it, we're off to a good start! I guess it's too late for me to make New Year's resolutions (she says cheekily), but we're going to pretend that I have strictly adhered to them for a full day and a half (a new Spinster record!) and leave it at that.

Happy Futzingday, Dearies! I hope it's just the right amount of futzy for you and that your skirts (or pant legs) are blowing right up!


  1. Happy New Year Coni and thank you for brightening every day. You crack me up and inspire me and make me enjoy every day to the fullest. You have such a way with words!! May you have a creative, peaceful, healthy New Year filled with lots of love and laughter!!

  2. New Year's Resolutions: I like your thinking!

  3. Happy Futzing Day to you, Coni! Come Tarry is looking good! Great start on Nova!

  4. Two Mondays two weeks in a row is certainly more than this slightly older stitcher can take. For that reason alone, getting back to "normal" is good!

  5. Beautiful start! Looks like it will be a fun stitch :)

  6. We totally get it. This is a fairly big decision that may be contrary to what you originally envisioned the industry as goldenslot. Though we’ve presented the information we’ve found, you still may be skeptical, and that’s ok. If you blindly listened to everything you read on one source on the internet, you would probably end up in a world of hurt. We’ve put together a few steps that you can effectively take to get some more information for yourself and to test things out for yourself.
