Something very odd is going on

I don't know if it's the spirit of the season, or if I am just so unorganized or what, but I have lost the fabric, floss, and specialty thread for one of my projects. I took the magazine out of the baggie I had it in last Thursday because I had kitted it up with Anchor and was really not happy with the Anchor, so went to get DMC for it. Now the bag is gone. I know that the dogs didn't take it of course, but I don't have it and I sure would like to know where it went. Eyy yiy yiy.

I downloaded the new issue of Gift of Cross Stitch. I haven't liked most of the newer issues, but this one has a really cool design of an animal chess board. I love animals quite obviously, so this was a good one for me. But I am not buying Gloriana silks-not at 20 colors at $5 or $6 a pop. So I headed off to Michael's last night, bought me all the colors in DMC (there was a conversion) and tried to find evenweave. They didn't have it in the right size, so I bought aida, then realized this morning that part of the pattern is over one, and so can't be done on aida. But I have a large piece of evenweave I bought back in the days when I was trying to kit up the Janlynn Autumn Sampler that I can use. I was thinking about using the return of the Yorkshire to get some, but I can always find a smaller piece for the project I had that evenweave saved for. Not like I'm in a rush to have a project. Especially now that I've misplaced that kit. Where could I have stuck it? I looked in all the likely spots. It ain't there.
Speaking of projects, I am working busily away at my turkeys today. I have most of the wording done, just have one of the turkeys to do and the beading. I think it should be done by the end of the week. I don't know how much I can work on it because I have to work on my Halloween exchange ornament. That was due out two weeks ago, and I didn't send it. But I do have some cute little ornaments to put in the box for her and some little things for my partner. I hope she's not too angry. I had to buy a ruler at lunch today, and I realized it was stupid to try to use sticky board to mount ornaments--it does not work. So hopefully tonight I can get that washed, ironed and finished, and that's off my plate.

Oh no, not misplaced stash! That's not good.

I've been happier with TGOS this year. When they first came out, I wasn't that impressed. I've found a few things that I like. I really enjoy the mystery samplers.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
