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.
