A Quickie

POST--a quickie post. Unfortunately not a quickie project but one full of joy. I hope that 13 year old Emma Lerch was as happy in her day to day life as her sampler makes me. The bright colors have been nice to stitch with since the last couple of weeks have been dark and dreary here in the Sunshine State.

Yes my pictures would be better if took a minute to iron the stitching but that would mean taking all the stuff off the ironing board and actually putting it away, so wrinkled is ok, it gives it character.

I have developed an unhealthy addiction to Netflix streaming. Who knew there was so much tv out there that I didn't know existed? I turned off the tv last week and went back to my audiobooks. I definitely needed to get the Netflix monkey off my back. I think I've found my balance and can watch Netflix responsibly, meaning I will leave the house occaisionally and interact with actual human beings instead of the ones on my tv screen.

Hope this weekend brings a touch of spring to everyone's corner of the world since this winter has been a humdinger. My mother says she's never seen so much snow in Tennessee as they have had this year.

Happy Stitching!

I am loving me some Emma!! The colors are just fantastic in this piece (as she writes the pattern down on her list to buy)! :o) She is so pretty.

And it's funny you mention Netflix - my kids are screaming for it and now I'm afraid I'll get tangled up in the web of movies and unlimited TV watching. Could be good for getting some stitching done tough!

Does 65 degrees tomorrow count :-). I am going to wear flip flops, LOL.

Love Emma, she's so pretty.

I hear you on the TV addiction! You know it's bad when you start telling people about what funny things your friends Will and Grace said. Not that I've done anything like that, of course. I'm just saying is all.

Your sampler looks GREAT! Emma is a gorgeous sampler.
