I am presently enjoying migraine number three today. I really do think they are sinus/weather/menopause/stress/dialysis related, so there's not a lot to be done other than Tylenol and a slow quiet prayer for unconsciousness.
Today started slowly, with a video chat with Dr Melfi and a lovely toasted roll and a lemonade smoothie. I am still pouring the Costco lemonade into the blender with some frozen blueberries each day, and thanks to a recent delivery (of about six minutes ago), there's a fresh batch of rolls and another bag of frozen fruit to open tomorrow.
(My sister used to call them "my obsessions", Stewey used to refer to them as "Mo-ther's crackpot fixations", but I'd like to think of them as "comfortable routines" that make life easier for me. And if the worst thing you can say about me is that I like the Costco Instacart service, then so be it.)
On the stitchy front, I am still enjoying the patriotic canvas piece. I did manage to switch one of the threads in a complete stroke of brilliance (if I may say so). I was using DMC Light Effects for a little sparkle, but that thread and I just Do. Not. Get. Along.
So I fished through the cube room studio and discovered a perfect Silk Lame' Braid instead:
It's coming along very nicely, I think, and will remain on the ottoman for the foreseeable future:
I spied the next happy thing on a fellow stitcher's Insta, and she was kind enough to point me in a direction, This is actually a quilt planning board, but it makes for the perfect parking space for threads in use and whatnot:
I got mine from the Fat Quarter Shop and paid $12 for it, but this would be very easy to construct for you crafty types. For me, though, it was worth the $12 to avoid hot gluing my fingers together.
The Mira Elia is really calling to me, but I am waiting for fabric to ship. I selected a lovely Picture This Plus purple color, but I don't think it's heading this way until the end of the month.
Patience, they say, is a virtue.
OK...I'm off like a herd of turtles to the big girl sleigh bed for a Thursday afternoon nap. My Book of the Month box arrived with a good one inside...Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk. How could you not love a book with that title?
