Take Time to Smell the Coffee

Think I mentioned at some point that part of the original reason for this blog, was to talk about some of my cross stitch – and as it turns out I hardly ever mention it.  However that’s changing – so I plan to post some cross stitch “stuff” on a regular basis – starting NOW!

The blog title today is a reminder to do just that.  We get so VERY busy, we just don’t take time to smell the coffee.  I’m no different – but I’m working on it.

So I designed this chart a number of years ago – but did I pay attention to what it says (well no!).


I will say that the time that I’m most relaxed is when I doing cross stitch – and I have a number of projects just waiting for me.

Saw this posted on facebook not too long ago and am about to design a cross stitch chart around it.  Stitch it and hang it where  I can see it all the time.

Stop the glorification of busy.
Busy, in and of itself, is not
A badge of honor.
It’s okay to not be busy.
Repeat with me:

I love this idea Iris of chatting about your designs. And the not being busy? Gosh, I need to hear that daily. My husband has a good knack for it, but it’s not in my DNA to just sit around.
My knitting is probably like your cross stitching. That’s what I do when we sit down to watch tv and it’s relaxing for me.
