Greetings My Friends,
How are you this fine morning? Yesterday I mentioned not sleeping well the previous night. Well, last night I made up for it sleeping about 9.5 hours! My eyes would not stay open for anything last night - knitting, stitching or reading, so I finally gave up at 8:30 (!!!) and went to bed. Pure bliss to sleep that well for a change.
Yesterday's work holiday luncheon was very nice as well. Delicious appetizers and way too much food for the meal, but all very tasty. Usually at this affair numerous prizes are given out but this year the focus was changed to giving. There were 12 seats at the meal that had numbers underneath the chair cushions. The individuals who sat in those chairs got to pick an organization/charity (and tell why they chose that particular one) and the company will be making a donation to that organization in the name of the individual. The stories were all very touching. Someone whose daughter had been diagnosed with melanoma chose the melanoma foundation; a girl who growing up was homeless chose the shelter where she and her mother stayed, and on and on and on.
There were still trivia questions and awards ($200 gift cards) for the correct answer. Yes, I did win one (for guessing the average speed - in mph - of a snowflake falling)! All in all a very lovely time. Hard to imagine this is most likely my last work event like this.
All of that brings us to this morning and Tiny Needle Tuesday (TNT). This is another week with nothing to show you on the cacti triptych. I thought I would focus on that at the end of last week, but things got busy (again). However, very good progress was made on the BIG Sampler aux Bouquets:
The giant bouquet that seemed to take forever is finally completed. And look! A bird is perched at the top. Love it. Still more blooms and letters to stitch, but the end is close! I really am going to attempt to work on the cactus piece this week and hopefully will have something to share next Tuesday.
Now it's time to pour another cup of coffee and get going. Hope your Tuesday is filled with bright spots!
