Time off work.

Too much time alone is not a good thing. I used to look forward to my days off mid week and loved the fact that a late shift doesn't start until 3pm, I can get soooooo much done when I'm here alone. Lately thats not such a good thing though, my mind starts to wander and I get to brooding on things, a sensible part of me knows I should leave well alone, but thats easier said than done. I loose concentration, housework gets done on auto pilot but my crafts suffer and very little is acheived. Hunney when he is here is very supportive, but he can't be here all the time, friends and family visit too, but they like hunney can't be here all the time. I start out each new day with great intentions and positive thoughts and all too often I see my ideas vanish into the same black pit that swallows me. Yesterday was a washout! Today will be different.

Today I will sew, and I will enjoy my sewing.

Sorry about that, normal ramblings will now resume.

I had to take a pic of the chart for the endangered babies. You can see how close I am to getting it finished. Soon I keep telling myself, soon it will be finished, but then I have a crappy day ....not going there.

While shopping for some thread the other day I happend to come across this little kit and it's friends, they were instantly added to my loooooooong wish list and this little fellow fell into my shopping basket. LOL oh yes and the people who purchased this also purchased one of these....LOL No I didn't I was well behaved for another few minutes.
Got my pics in the wrong order! Grrr Here is the thread I went shopping for. And a lesson in making sure you purchase enough hand dyed thread because when you go back it will probably be a different dye lot!
Never mind, I can make it work.
After dropping the thread and the village scene in to my virtual basket I remembered that I had thought about making some cross stitched cards for Christmas and my clicky finger found these.
A kit containing everything I need to make six pretty little cards.

I particularly like the candle on the second image.
Retail therapy is good and so is playing with new stash.
I'm off, I'm outta here, I'm going to get on with my good day.

I hope you enjoy yours. Happy stitching.

A very wise friend of mine asays that when you have one of those 'down' days, just go with the flow, and don't beat yourself up about not achieving much. if you were physically unwell, you'd say, I'm full of cold, so can't concentrate to sew today, need to have a long bath and then curl up with a trashy book/DVD till I feel better. Why shouldn't you be able to do that when you feel mentally/spiritually unwell? Hope you're already beginning to feel better.
