Fiddle Dee Dee...


I'm late... I'm late... I did not manage to finish my February Ornie... I've been sitting on the sofa most of the afternoon and evening watching my Beauty and the Beast DVD's.. all five cats curled up with me and stitching like crazy... Alas, I'm almost finished, but my eyes are crossing so I think I'm calling it a night as it's midnight and the 1st of March anyway... So, technically it's already a day late... :-(

And... Tomorrow is another day... and I don't have that much more to stitch and it will be finished... Then I can start on The Chocolate Shoppe... :-) I know the SAL day is supposed to be Wednesday's but I had to stitch the ornament today... thus, I had to put it off yet another day...

I wish I had been more productive the last two days... I know I've been off work, and should have so much accomplished... sadly enough I don't know where the time has gone and I just haven't felt well... I'm so tired, my RA is being a pain and my headache is back... not as bad as it was a few weeks ago, but it's there and that's enough to throw me out of whack... I don't know if it's stress or sinus... Actually, I think it's both, but who am I to say? lol Anyway, I'm not complaining... I'm still off work... I'm alive and I'm stitching... Wooo Hoooo

Someone tell me tomorrow isn't Thursday... the week is flying by and I do wish it would slow down a wee bit. I've got an appointment to get my hair coloured tomorrow afternoon at 2:00... and quite frankly I just can't be bothered! However, I look a fright as my silver roots are glowing and against the red... hmmm... you get the picture... So, I imagine I had better muster the energy to go... Besides, I was thinking on getting it cut and styled into something a wee bit more fashionable... Now that'd be chocolate! I can see me now... it's 4:00 AM in the morning and my alarm has just gone off... I struggle out of bed... stumble blindly into the kitchen and pour a hot, steaming mug of life support... gulp it down and pour another... slowly savour the rich aroma as I muster the energy to make it to the shower... Oh, maybe I'll have just one more cup... Ah at last... a hot shower and I'm almost awake... By this time, I'm pushing it... as it's 5:00 or just a wee bit after... So, I quickly paint on my face and dry my hair... Wow... it's 5:30 or 5:35 by now... and I have to be at work at 6:00... Style my hair? Surely you jest? lol

Here's a piccy of my progress on The Prairie Schooler's Winter Ornament from the JCS Ornament Issue 2006... I'm stitching it on the recommended 32ct Lambswool Linen with DMC threads...

I just have the fence, the rest of the greenery, the door, windows, the chimneys and smoke and the snow to stitch and I'll be finished... so tune in tomorrow... same bat time... same bat channel! lol

Thank you all for stopping by... Your visits and lovely, thoughtful comments brighten my days! :-)

Until next time... Love in Stitches...

I am thankful for precious moments... Advil Liqui-Gels, my cats, my stitching and my dear friends...

Nice start on the ornament, you've been busy. Hope you feel better soon so that you can enjoy stitching more. Looking forward to seeing you start the Chocolate Shoppe, that is a cute one.

Lizzy I love the ornament. I didn't even get to start mine this weekend because I was sick! Hope you are feeling better. I need a new hairdo too!

Hazel said...

Hi there! Thanks for your comments on my Half Sick of Shadows. The chart is by pomegranite needlework company which sadly no longer exist. My friend is doing the accolade by golden kite and it is very beautiful although about a third of the colours are blends!

Lizzy, your blog is delightful. You ramble like I do, LOL! I love writing and reading ramble ;-)

I just love these seasonal Prairie Schooler ornaments, and yours is coming along beautifully!

Hope you're feeling better, you Trekkie, you! I still have a hard time believing Capt. Kirk is now Danny Crane in Boston Legal, which is one of my favorite series. He's a scream in it!
