Keeping busy enough

Golly gosh! Yes I said golly gosh. LOL!

Christmas and come and gone. New Year's too. What in the world have I been doing? Well to be honest, as little as possible. After the madness of Christmas preparations for 19 people, I felt completely burnt out and in need of plenty of R&R. So I made sure that I got it before returning to work this past Monday.

I have spent time stitching this Blackbird Designs "Waiting for the Harvest" design. I'm using Hand Dyed Fibers silk in the colour Primitive Black on some old 28 count evenweave something or other that was lying around in my stitching stash box.

Sometimes with help... Not!

Then I saw a few people stitching this on Instagram and I just had to have it. Leanne's House "Sew Laugh Love".

So I got a cuppa tea and prepared to stitch this one as well

On another day, as a family, we found time to go watch this

But mostly I've been busy with this


  1. Nice stitching! Sounds like you've been having fun -- The Hobbit is great, or I thought so. Your little kitten is sooooo cute!

  2. Oooh, is that little cutie a rag-doll

  3. I think she may be a Birman. I had a Birman who lived to 23, she ruled the roost and was very vocal.

  4. I do like your cross stitch, but I can see why the stitchery caught your eye. Your kitty is so sweet.
