I don't know how I did it, but I somehow managed to stitch during my entire treatment yesterday! The dialysis gods must have been looking out for me, since I didn't pass out or get sick even once.
(A lovely surprise miracle, to be sure.)
For many, it would seem that I am in a huge stitchy rut with Cirque des Coeurs, but I am happily plodding along to what I hope will be a finish this month. I have reached the uppermost row of hearts and think I have just a few to complete...maybe four or five. I've promised myself that as soon as this one is finished, I might self-frame it using all of the excellent online tutorials from Danielle and Vonna, and then move on to Grasshopper Pie.
After the rigid structure of Maynia, I am rather enjoying the ramble through happy pieces. I might repeat that rotation schedule in August or September with autumnal projects, but for now I seem to be quite content playing with one or two things as the fancy strikes.
I am still completely obsessed with 11x 11 q-snaps with matching grime guards and project bags:
This set came from the Etsy from a shop called: MargaretLeeNeedleArt.
I do have several new summer bags made (thanks to Aunt Chrissy) with enough fabric left over, so I suppose if I get industrious, I could whip up a few more sets.
Speaking of Aunt Chrissy, she and Bosco were here for a visit and I thoroughly enjoyed getting my Aunt Tubby cuddles in. That little guy is still as sweet and perfect as ever, and seeing him for a few days was exactly what my poor tender heart needed. He gets me...always has. I still miss my Stewey fiercely, but a sloppy kiss every now and then from my puppytot nephew is just the perfect antidote!
Well, Dearies, I suppose that's enough of a blather for today. I hope you are enjoying a happy, healthy, stitchy Thursday wherever you are and that your heart is content. Thank you for your well wishes, prayers, and happy thoughts. As always, they are so appreciated that I sometimes think I will simply burst from gratitude!
Do something fun and come tell me all about it!
