Here they come. The signs of spring. It's still darkish, dampish, and mostly dreary, but everywhere there are signs that things will get better. I choose to believe!
I've been embroidering daily from about 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. I am pretty much constantly embroidering, stopping only to let pets in or out, make something to eat, or clean the kitchen. It's hard to imagine how anyone could write an embroidery book and still have a life. I have tried to imagine that, but I just cannot. I like this life, though. It works for me. Once spring has sprung, I'll be aching to go outside. But for now, I'm speed-stitching. It makes Andy laugh. One time he saw me embroidering while standing and said, "No. I never want to see you doing that again." He thinks embroidering while standing because you don't have time to sit down is just wrong! Silly R.N. I try not to let him catch me doing it anymore. Hang in there, wrists!!! Poor wrists. Speed-embroidering is hard on them. It's an extreme sport for crafty types.
Thank you again for all the Friendly Bird kit orders!!! They were slow to get going but then it picked up and they are still coming in today, so I am going to leave them open for a while longer — I've ordered enough supplies for an extra 20%, so I'll keep taking orders until I reach that number. Thank you, everyone! These are really fun, and they will keep you busy for days. Good times!
My mom and I are going to the Sewing and Stitchery Expo all day tomorrow. I haven't been there in several years. Figures the only time I've left the house in the past few weeks is to go frame embroidery or go to a sewing expo! It's definitely time for another walk in the woods.
