Greetings, I am now starting 2022, this is hanks to the nice wintery mix in the Hill Country, where the lovely Cedar Trees reside. They had some sleet and maybe ice on those love trees. and today the Cedar Count is down, and I am going to assume that it will now be less of a problem for me going forward. I woke up today normal, no coughing, etc. I also did my 30 minute walk – not as fast as I normally do – but it was 33 degrees and I had missed the last 20 days. So I am happy with doing 1 and 1/4th of a mile in 30 minutes! Even with a few stops just to let the body know I was not planning on killing it today.
Today is my 2022 New Years Day as I am well and starting to clear up a few things that I want finished by 1 February!
Last night I started my Fat Quarter Shop Cross Stitch project, of which I call ’Love’. It is a free download and Kimberly has YouTube videos to walk beginners through the process. They call it Cross Stitch University!
I am changing the thread colors. I wanted a black outline where they used grey and a red outline where they used blue. This will make my house more of a Barn! I have tons of floss that were purchased around 2008 and when they quit making the thread in France. How lucky I was to be able to have nothing but floss made in France!
I started working on ‘Love’ last night. Kathy gave me some great tips the other day on figuring where to start on this project. Instead of using the painter’s tape around the edges, I am trying to see how cutting the Aida cloth with my pinking rotary cutter. So far so good!
For today I am going to try to sew buttons on my Dresden Heaven using a quilting hoop. We shall see how that goes. I want to also work on ’Love’! Then there are 12 blocks to trace for my Holiday Sew Along quilt! Sounds like a busy afternoon doesn’t it! Feels good to me!
Have a great week-end and it feels so good to be ME AGAIN!
