I was very lucky today! Around noon we had a huge burst of rain and heavy wind. It was forecasted and very expected. I was parked in front of my office building along the street, and a psychiatrist I work with had her Honda parked in front of my Jeep. The wind dislodged something from the roof of the old building we work in and a huge piece of metal flew down to the sidewalk. It missed my Jeep, but grazed her Honda. Yikes! I sure was lucky today!! What amazing January weather we are having!
Yikes, I have to start taking photos of Celtic Winter somewhere else! Lying it on the floor of the computer room is not the place for it - the fabric looks so.... yucky! I will try for a better shot next week! Anyhow, here is this week's progress :-) I quit early, though. My sinuses are acting up and my throat is sore again. I just want to drink some tea and watch a little TV with Mike now...
Yep, I am on a bit of a stash diet, it is true... yet, the mailman delivered goodies today! Hey, I didn't say I was quitting cold turkey LOL! I do still have a pulse! I got in a custom cut of Golden Harvest 36 ct edinburgh linen from Silkweaver that I had ordered in December for Fouroaks Designs' A Love Song (it was delayed because they were out of the base fabric at the time that I ordered it). And, I got in a nice 15" x 16" cut of Silkweaver's Romantic Interlude on 40 ct Newcastle Linen. I love 40 ct for samplers :-) I managed to pick this one up on ebay for a great deal! I also got in something I can read tonight while I have my tea - Nordic Needle's newest catalog! Yay! I don't order from them often, so this should not hurt my stash diet much! (The catalog just so happens to have Fouroaks Designs' A Love Song right there on the cover - how timely!). I, like Becky, could probably have bought a house, or at least a car, with what I spend on stash (ha, ha - only kidding Mike!!).
Q. Have you had a happy dance yet this year? If so, tell us about it!
(Or just point to the entry that talks about it.) If not, when do you
predict it will be?
A. Nope, none, unless you count that I finished Part 1 of Mystery IX and Part 4 of Medieval Town Mandala... but those are really only partial "happy dances" (OK, I admit, I am not fond of that term....). I am a rotation stitcher and lean towards large projects, so I have been busy but not finishing yet. I really don't know when my next finish will be... but I figure it will probably be Celtic Winter, but who knows??
