This Post is Boring



Same-old, same-old. Working on the same old stuff. The English Tapestry Sewing Box is coming along. When I looked at the whole thing as I was taking the picture, I could see that I have got just that doggone corner to go. One more prong thing, five flowers and some vines. My goal for today is to get the last prong done and to locate the five flowers to get ready to do them in one fell swoop. I finished the front of the Berry Thief companion. Now the dilemma, what do I stitch on the back? I am not fond of the dead tree. I have two things in mind: make it the same as the front or use the bird and strawberry design from the needle book I just finished. I am kind of leaning toward making the back and front the same.
I got my copy of the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue. I looked through it and found only about two ornaments I'd like to do. I am consistent with what I like, as the designers of the two ornaments I am interested in doing are among my favorites designers. I was shocked when a designer told me that she doesn't get paid anything for contributing an ornament design. She just gets a free magazine. Imagine what interesting designs Just Cross Stitch might get if they paid for the designs? I bet many more designers would participate too.

It is overcast today. I'm making "Easy Beefy Crescent Squares" from a Pillsbury Bake-Off cookbook from donkey's years ago. Only I am using ground turkey, lowfat sour cream, and low fat crescent rolls. That's what happens when you get old. You have to eat crap.
