My Lastest craft project
Happy
raginbajan
I started this cross stitch kit on a whim ( Yoruban Beauties) my friend at work wanted to transfer a cross stitch pattern to plastic canvas because working with xstitch cloth was to difficult for her (she could not see the squares in the cloth).  So we bought 10-count plastic canvas and #3 perle cotton and she started her project and it looks amazing.  She is doing 1/2 xstitch instead of the full xstitch stitch for her pattern.

I had several kits lying around the house that I never got to, because I love the Xstitch patterns but not working with the cloth. So I started my kit on 14 count plastic canvas and I am amazed how well it looks.  I have been working on this for several weeks now and I love it, I dont have to worry about maintaining constant thread tension on the cloth because plastic canvas is ridged.  My only complaint is that 14 count plastic canvas comes 8 1/4 x 11 inches.



Just Making a New Year Resolution.

Every year I say the same thing.  I am going to make a resolution and stick to it.  By the end of the week I forgot what it was supposed to be and its 6-months later and I realize I totally blew it.

This year I am going to make a conscious effort to stick to my resolutions.

1.  Eat Healthier !!
2.  Exercise More !!
3   Be Selfish more (this year it is all about me)
4.  Save more (not getting any younger and hitting the lottery is not a sound retirement plan)
5.  Stress LESS !! (sometimes its not worth the highblood pressure or the thinning hair)

Well those are my resolutions.  Here is hoping that at least one of theses makes it to the finish line on December 31st.

Happy Birthday!!

Christmas Shopping
Happy

Very proud of my self today.  I actually brought a Christmas gift.  I have not done any Christmas shopping in the last two years.  It felt nice to get someone something for a change

On another note, I love Sublime Manga, the fact that their are re-issuing Love Pistols in digital form is a bonus. Now the only problem I have is what to do will all of my hardcopies.  LOL....

In a Good Place.

So Today I finally settled on a user pic, this one was created by the group Blissful Sin. I wanted something fun and playful and not to explicit but still recognizable as BL.  I think they did an awesome Job.

My Prays and thoughts to all on the East Coast.

What are you willing to do?

People are so full of themselves, its hysterical and downright stupid the things people are willing to do to fit in, get in or just be acknowledge by the in-crowd.

Good Luck with fitting in on other peoples terms.

Writer's Block: Collect 'em all
Happy

Do you collect anything? If so, what do you collect, and what made you start your collection?

I collect jigsaw puzzles.  I like the sense of calm their give me when I am working on them.  I also collect cross stitch patterns and kits.  My theory is that some point  in time I will actually start a project and finish it.  I have yet to finish any cross stitch project I have started.  I also collect Plastic canvas patterns and books.  I have finished a couple of those projects.

What sign were you born under in the Chinese lunar calendar? Do you think it accurately represents your animal spirit?

Rat, I kinda think it represents my animal spirit but I can't help wanting to be a Dragon...
