It's just another day of the week. Nothing special, but somehow... it's a day that can make me a bit moody. Maybe because I am always starting another diet on Mondays! The diet du jour- and that's all I can hope it will last- no caffeine (wah!) and I am trying to seriously restrict the artificial sweeteners. And for some one with BB's- that's a challenge. So I went without my morning cup of tea. Honestly, I'm havin' chest pains. And hot flashes. and a bad headache. And my toes are cold and my nose is hot. And I hear this strange ringing... Oh, OK, I'll survive. But I'm not happy about it.
DH Bill and the 3 oldest boys are hunting, today. They left yesterday afternoon and spent the night in the woods. So that might attest to my normal routine being out of whack. Speaking of whacking... hope they get something. I figure that with 4 people hunting, surely they will be coming home with some protein for the freezer, right? I have been bumping around the house with all the extra room their absence has afforded me. Just me and the 5 little ones. We've done some cooking and watched a movie. I made a few more postcards- I like this dragon fly one. It is a lot of fun to make- I use the 4x6" stabilizer as my foundation and then just stitch and flip- improvisationally. I don't even trim up the extra fabric- what fer? It's just a post card, right? When I have covered the whole peice of stabilizer, I iron it down and trim it up. Ta-da! I stitched over all the seams with some pretty variegated primary color thread- rayon. (5 adjectives in that sentence-shew!) And then stitched it to the card base.
The table runners I made to sell at a tea room. (Notice the empty tea cup?) Now aren't you all just shocked at their traditional colors and patterns? I can do traditional if I put my mind to it! These are the poetry collection fabrics by Moda. I got them while down in Tennessee with Sarah. I have been making a few things to sell at the tea room and at the craft show- but I always have someone specific in mind, if they don't sell. That way I have some gifts all ready to go.
oh, I think my decaffeinated body needs a nap! Now why am I doing this? Oh, that's right, caffeine and artificial sweetners are supposed to be bad for me. I'm wondering if I really care... Now stop that, Nines! I can do this!
