A day off.

Apart from the ever present laundry basket and a trip to the post office I have nothing planned for today. I really need to get onto the rowing machine and put in some serious effort, I've been lazy this last week and need to get back into the swing of things.

I did some knitting last night, not much, just a few rows. I was exhausted and fell asleep after just that little bit so Hunney chased me off to bed.
Something at work (I think the willow trees, there are loads of them and they are showering everything with seeds at the moment.) is giving me hay fever, my face gets all blotchy and my eyes and ears itch like mad, if I don't shower as soon as I get home I itch all over!! I think it's contributing to the tiredness too. I'll add a visit to the pharmacy to my list of things to do today.

Christmas wishes didn't grow much either. I got two more letters stitched this morning while I was catching up with the rest of blog land. and in fact I finished the Y while I was waiting for this picture to up load. I'm still not the tidiest stitcher in the world, but I'm getting better so long as I don't rush.
I may just keep on going with these today and have a slowish day.

Did I tell you I'd found some new BOMs? I'm not going to commit to stitching them in the very near future, I am saving them, they are so pretty.
Jenny at Elefantz is giving away Shabby Roses. Which are not shabby at all, but quite beautiful in fact.
Vicky at Tozz's Corner is giving away On My Heart. Another beautiful set of designs.
I hope to stitch both some time in the future.
I think it's wonderful that there are so many people in the world who are generous enough to give away their designs and share their wonderful talents with us. Thank you ladies.

To everyone who asked to be included on the mailing list mentioned previously, you were there any way, but thank you. ((Hugs))

Allergy season here in Ohio and it's really bad this year. Hope you get some relief. Your stitchery is very neat. I love Elefantz. Jenny is so talented. Thanks for the other link. This is a new one to me.

Enjoy your quiet day. Hope being home and away from the trees helps with the alergies.
