FIRST FUTZINGDAY!

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!

  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!
