What DO I do when I’m bored – where Bloggers live

Welcome to the latest edition of “Where Bloggers Live”. It’s kind of like HGTV’s “Celebrities at Home,” but…Bloggers! Who doesn’t like to peek behind the scenes and see inside people’s homes and lives.  Here is the “Where Bloggers Live” group – a group of ladies who live very diverse lives.  Be sure and check out their blogs –  Links to their blogs at the end.

A few years ago (when I was considerably younger than now) I’m not sure I could have answered this question.  I was basically “the energizer bunny” – I stayed so busy (doing ‘stuff’) that I didn’t have time to be bored.  Sadly (I guess) that’s not the case anymore.  I do still have things I enjoy doing, but for the most part I just don’t have the energy…. OR if it’s something sitting down (as most things these days are), I don’t need to sit so long.  I need to get up and walk!  Doing that I “NEED TO DO” and what I like to do don’t always work well together these days.  But, that’s life, so it is what it is.

I do definitely enjoy “counted cross stitching” and while I’m considerably slower than I used to be, it will keep me from being bored.  It’s annoying though when my phone beeps every hour to remind me to drink water and get up and walk!!!!

I’ve been desiging and marketing cross stitch charts for several years now, and I do enjoy that.  Sadly I’m not nearly as artistic as I’d like to be – but again – it is what it is.  My picture gallery is going to be a number of designs I’ve done and stitched in the past few years.  I think you’ll be able to figure out what they are..  They can be seen on my website at Iris Originals – babies

And, there’s another on the way – that’ll make SIX great-grandbabies!  I’m definitely a blessed woman.

Then are a number of ‘fun’ charts that have been popular in sales.  If you’re interested you can see them all at Iris Originals

SO, my fingers have been busy… now, excuse me, I have to get up and walk 😜

Be sure and check out my fellow bloggers to see what they do when they’re bored!
