A New SAL...


Is it possible that it's been over 6 months since I last posted?! Yikes!

Well, then I better get to it!

I am so excited to share with you, dear friend, that I just joined a brand new SAL, which is being hosted by Noelle, over at her blog Le Chas de L'aiguille which in English is "The Eye of The Needle."

We are going to be stitching "Village Quaker" by Jardin Prive...

Isn't it a beauty?

I just love Nathalie Cichon's designs, and have stitched many.

I know that I am going to be stitching mine on 28 count White Monaco, but I haven't yet decided what brand or color floss I am going to use...that will be decided after I go through my stash over the weekend.

Sadly, I have lost my stitching enjoyment and haven't picked up a needle for more than mere minutes in many months...I suppose that's the reason that I have been neither posting nor reading blogs. This is the first design that has caught my eye in a very long time, so when I came across the SAL on Noelle's blog I decided that this may just be the WIP that helps bring back my stitching joy...I will keep you posted, and maybe if you could, please keep your fingers crossed for me.

It's funny how things work out...I had just been telling our very dear Parsley how my stitching Mojo was gone and I feared that it would never come back, and hadn't even looked at one stitching blog in months, and I happened to stumble upon Noelle's blog and her SAL!

I can't wait to get started...

Thanks for stopping by and for not giving up on me and my long silence...

Hugs from a 110 degree SoCal!

January 2016 TUSAL Report

Better late than never...but not entirely my fault.

First, my ORT jar for 2016...

And the close up too...

You can see it's barely filled, but that's more due to a lack of stitching than to a lack of frogging...and yes, that is a Popsicle stick in there, which I decided to leave since I took a break from stitching to enjoy my newest obsession...

Weight Watchers Giant Latte bars...they are the bomb! They fit in perfectly to the new plan, and they are only 4 Smart Points, totally easy peasy to fit into my day,! Love them!

If you just read the above and totally understand what I just said...raise your hand!

Now, for the reason that I am late with the TUSAL report...I was unable to take a see, my iPhone took a bit of a dive into my coffee cup and fried itself...I take no responsibility as it literally did a half gainer and plopped itself right into my full, hot coffee cup. I put it into a bowl of rice for 24 hours, and it never seemed to recover...however, I must confess that this was not it's first experience with swimming, since I accidentally dropped it into the toilet (yes, clean water) about a month ago...I know, I actually received quite a lecture from Pa about the value of things and a lack of focus and appreciation for technology...wah, wah, wah....luckily, knowing me, we had purchased insurance and I was able to get a new one overnight...anywho, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit...stop by again soon!
