Cats - why is it when cats sleep they try and curl up in the smallest ball possible? Homer tries his best but somehow just cant get the ball shape tight enough. Still looks damn cute.
Kids - how is it that a laugh from any child can bring a smile to your face? (or is that a mom thing?) DL & P were playing Super Smash Bro's Brawl and laughing like loons all day today. Such a wonderful sound to hear.
Headaches - I do believe I have migraines. Found that one of the only pills that will make the pain subside is the wonder mix of acetaminophen, aspirin & caffeine commonly found in otc migraine relief (such as Excedrin). I was able to find a generic version that has exactly the same stuff for about $4 cheaper. 2 wonder pills and my headache is much bearable. I do need to get my butt to the Dr for a better diagnosis I suppose...
Stitchy stuff - Tacky Bob, little cd case with sticky stuff on the inside to tack beads on. No more beads rolling off stuff! I love it. And there is a bonus on the back - a little magnetic strip for needles.
I was able to focus my brain a bit today to work some more x's on Holly. She still doesnt look like much, I have no rhyme or reason as to why Im stitching the colors when I am. To keep my brain a bit happy Im trying to stick to large same color patches :op
Tomorrow I will be on the phone to see if local Joann stores have 25ct DMC evenweave in stock (20x30). Just with my recent try on LOTR with 28ct evenweave - I think I need to give 25ct a try and see if it works better. Joanns has it in stock online but not online only (a plus Im thinking)
Fair question(s) - I would like to put some of the finishes Ive done in the fair but a couple items have me wanting to old back.
1) Just how picky are county fair judges? If I have a stitch missing, out of place, fabric showing between x's - how is that going to reflect?
2) Has anyone else had issues with treasures going missing?
3) Or going to a fair and not seeing your item because they only chose a select few to put on display?
Thx for all your comments :o) It is always a joy opening my email and seeing I have mail from my stitcy friends.
