How are you on this Tuesday in December. The Solstice is only one week away! How is that possible?
I woke up early this morning (4:30!). I stayed in bed a bit, but finally got up at 5 a.m. I knew I wasn't going to fall back asleep and honestly, I cherish these early morning minutes that are (usually) quiet. Mabel seems to be behaving so far this morning...I hear her scratching in her litter box and it sounds as though she is trying to dig to the center of the earth!
My massage yesterday was a taste of heaven. Oh it felt so good! And when I came home I took a nap and slept deeply for 1.5 hours! I'm excited to book another massage - I think I'll go early in January. Between now and then I'd like to get my hair cut again and I plan to book a pedicure for next week. Little pleasures.
Well, here we are at Tiny Needle Tuesday (TNT) again and this time I have a finish! Yes people, Pomegranate Birds is finally complete. I do love it. I'm also happy to have it finished.
It is now tucked away safely in the drawer with all my other finished and unframed pieces. As I've said in the past, I enjoy stitching very much, but I don't want a house filled with framed cross stitched pieces - that's not my style. I have some framed pieces up and that is enough.
I wanted to stitch a seasonal piece next and have chosen this:
It will be a small piece which is perfect for right now. True confession time: I started this the other day and just about completed the border when I realized that it would not meet up perfectly...I was off by one linen thread. I tried to rip it out, but it was a real PITA, so I just threw it out. I will start it again today if I have time. No rush, but I will enjoy working on a holiday-ish piece.
Plans for today include a bit of work (hopefully not too much!!), maybe some baking (cookies), some cooking (sauce because we are having lasagna tonight), maybe some cleaning (I bought a new mop for my kitchen floor - oh the excitement!! LOL).
What about you? What is on your Tuesday agenda? Whatever it is, I hope you can find a few minutes to curl up, be quiet and just enjoy the day. Maybe some knitting? Or stitching? Or reading? Or just sitting peacefully? Whatever - enjoy!!
