I'll begin with the rant (and feel free to skip down!).
Sleep is a wonderful thing. As it becomes rarer at my 'certain' stage of life it becomes precious. Well, imagine this scenario....it's before 8 o'clock in the morning....husband and wife happily asleep (and, no doubt, snoring)....phone rings. Wife leaps out of bed, minus glasses so can't see, snatches phone and with fear in her heart, says hello. Only to be greeted with a cheery voice wishing me a good morning and sincerely wishing to share with me that there were unresolved issues with my computer. I, in turn, sincerely wished to utter very unbecoming and unladylike words. I rather vehemently informed the cad exactly what time it was and that he woke me up and I was not pleased.
How I miss the old-fashioned phones that you could slam down thus venting at least a small element of frustration - instead I crawled back into bed and lay there and fumed. And the day can only get better, right?
Now, on to more seam treatments!
This one is all straight stitches...
Cross stitches (black); straight stitches (blue) and lazy daisies (pink).
Feather stitch (black); lazy daisies (green); cross stitches (pink); straight stitches (blue) and either a bead or French Knot (orange).
- There's a really pretty summer shawl pattern HERE.
- Perhaps you'd like to make yourself a pretty tablecloth (or quilt) using the free pattern HERE.
- I suppose it was only a matter of time before the rage for fidget spinners would take over the quilting/sewing world and sure enough it has. Go HERE!
For reasons now only known to my computer the left margin has decided that it should suddenly jump itself over to a spot previously unknown and no amount of fiddling, juggling, and uttering of unladylike words seems to be of any use.
The quote today, fittingly enough, is about frustration and comes from an unknown source..."All frustrations are self-induced. The outside world can invite us to become upset, but we ultimately accept the invitation"
Words I need to learn to live by!
