Is it just me, or have I been phoning it in recently?

Goodness gracious...everything is just so very...difficult...lately. My oomph seems to have gone missing, and I feel like I'm treading through jello under water.

Or something like that.

Stitching here at CS2 has been a very slow grind, but with cheery colors and pretty bling to keep me delighted. My fob was a gift from Siggy's Closet, and matches the thread pallet of this piece, so my itch for matchy-matchy was scratched perfectly!

This is Daisy Chain from Carolyn Manning Designs. I'm stitching it on Peony 28ct Lugana from Colour & Cotton and all of the charted DMC threads.

Today is dark, blustery, and cold, and Rich is over on campus all day, so I am tucked under a magic blanket with a big cup of damn good and lots of determination to stitch the day away while listening to podcasts. I recently discovered one called "Currently Reading", and I'm enjoying it immensely!

Speaking of reading...thanks to Stitchy Guild Sister Gail's excellent recommendation, I am making my way through the Tom Hanks novel. I'm really enjoying it!

Time for a refill! Is it cold where you are?

You can't see them in my craptastic photo, but there are snowflakes flying and herds of them gathering on the rooftops across the way. Hello, end of March!

Well, Dearies. I hope that you are well and that your skirts are a'twirlin with everything that makes you happy! Come tell me everything new with you!

The cube room studio is getting a good bit tidier:

I was trying to remember what started me on this journey all those years ago. AuntChrissy taught me to stitch sometime in the neighborhood of 2004 or 2005, I think. I was obsessed with stitching houses, of all things, and this was my very first finish:

(I think it's hysterical that I was set on stitching "houses and only houses" for the first several months until I learned that there were actually other things to play with!)

Today, I kitted up a new little beauty called "Spring" from Emily Call. I'm using fabric and threads of my own choosing...both from Colour & Cotton:

But first, a little rest and water break while I watch my Lady Irish win their last home game:

We're off like a herd of turtles, Dearies! I hope that your corner of the world is wonderfully swell today and that your week ahead is exactly how you want it to be! What's new with you?
