I need a pat on the back . . . and a round of applause

and a standing O.

I was on 123, looking at fabric to buy for stuff in my stash. I kept putting extra stuff in my cart that I don't need. I realized I was doing it, and stopped. I'll go back in a week, and I won't get it. But I can make a list of what I want and maybe the cats can get it for me my birthday.

I did get the ornament issue from JCS. I think there are a lot more ornaments this year that I can say, 'Yeah, I'll stitch that.' than previous years. My favorite, as of right now, is Walt the Malt. He's so cute. I think I have all the threads to stitch him. But I don't have the buttons. I also like Charlotte's Web's ornament, a simple Christmas design with specialty stitches. I like doing specialty stitches. I like it a lot.

I am almost done with the yellow stitching on the geisha. I managed to join up sections this morning before work, and they fit together. That is always such a good feeling. I'm always so worried that I messed up and haven't figured it out til i get to that point. But it all looks good. At least so far. I think I should be able to finish her skirt by next week. I'm off on Friday and Monday for my vacation, and super-excited.

Isn't it amazing how we con figure out how we don't need everything when we just take a little time to think about it? But oh, it can be so hard somtimes. But you're doing good. Keep up the great work!

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
