Spanish Rouge

Spanish Rouge by Sampler Cove
Stitched 1 over 2 on 32ct Belfast linen
Floss: Vikki Clayton Silks Nose Gay 2111, DMC 209 and 3837

I've been having the hardest time gaining momentum on this piece. Can't really put my finger on what the problem is... maybe it's the color, maybe the subject matter bores me too quickly. It's shocking as this boredom is something very new to me. EGADS! To make things worse, there were times while I was working on it that I seriously considered not finishing it!!!! Horror of horrors!!! :O

Alas, the 'finisher' part of me rebelled at that idea everytime, so I will see this through by hook or by crook. I'm sure the "fun butts" at the Crafty Coven will have a field day with this. LOL!

With that said, I've rolled it up for now and started back on stitching Metamorphosis. Figured that I'll get back to this when I need a break from all the intensive color changes and the over 1 stitches....... maaaayyyyyybeeeeeeeee. ;)

The Smallest Differences

Isn't it amazing what little tiny things can sometimes make a world of difference?

One little angled 'tail' between chromosomes has the power to determine the wall color for a newborn baby's room...

One blink of the eyes, and one might miss the shooting star that one has waited hours to see...

Mere inches, like the NFL love to advertise, is the difference between victory and defeat...

And since this blog is allllllll about me, I have to share how one iiiiiiiitttttyyyyyy, biiiitttttttttty number in floss color marks the difference between flawless skin and cooties on Luna.

A long while back, I mislabeled 2 pinks, somehow switched the color labels between 224 and 225. What resulted was Luna in March, all aglow with cooties (see all those bright pink spots all over her flesh?):

And Luna now, just plain aglow! :D

Inner Peace

Courtesy of Mellie. It was sooo helpful to me, I just HAD to share...
I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me and we all could use more calm in our lives.

By following the simple advice I heard on a Medical TV show, I have finally found inner peace. A Doctor proclaimed the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started.

So I looked around my house to see things I'd started and hadn't finished and, before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of shhhardonay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of vocka, a pockage of Prunglies , tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valum scriptins, the res of the Chesescke an a box a chocolets.

Yu haf no idr who gud I fel. Peas sen dis orn to dem yu fee AR in ned ov inr pece.
