Cross Stitch

2nd note to self …

Note to self:

“It doesn’t matter that your back is aching, do NOT lay down on the bed to catch up on emails and blogs in the afternoon when you’ve just finished day 4 of 5am shifts … your eyes will close involuntarily and you will wake up 3 hours later in a pool of drool feeling as though you’ve just consumed 2 bottles of red wine, and making it harder to sleep later … next time do what you normally do, and get your stitching out!!  It doesn’t matter if you need to use matchsticks to prop your eyes open, just remain vertical at all times!!”

One other thing I forgot to mention the other week too (I’m sooooo behind on things at the moment, and very very forgetful), is that I have a space confirmed for next year’s classes in Perth with CA Wells … I’m very excited! 😀  We’ll be stitching the Sailor’s Valentine, and a Cottage Etui (which is mainly in blues apparently, woohoo! – I think it may be the project pictured here).  My annual leave form is in already for April … yippee 😀  All I need to do now is pay for the classes, and as soon as the kits are received I’ll be on my way with more stitching projects to be completed (I think the SV kits are coming first ahead of the other ones).

Right, off to do some of my final packing, and get my load of washing in the machine …  With any luck I’ll have a better internet reception at the next place, in a lounge or something, so I can catch up with what’s been happening in the blogging world 🙂

  1. (((Anne))) I am finding it hard to catch up with blogs right now, but I really wanted to tell *you*, how happy I am to listen to your voice – it sounds so much happier, so much readier to bite into life. I know things haven’t been all perfect and rosy either, but you seem to have recovered your gusto and your joie de vivre. ((((hugs))) and hope you manage to catch up on your sleep 🙂

  2. Hey there, Anne! Good luck with the packing and move! Wishing you lots of happiness in your next abode. 😀 And how exciting that you’re all ready for the next CA Wells class!

  3. Good luck with the packing and upcoming move. I also agree with Isabelle. You sound sooo much happier.

    Woohoo about your class. That’s good news and something to look forward to.

  4. You have been awarded the Rockin’ Girl Blogger award. Take a look at my blog :o)

  5. Anne,

    I am so jealous that you are getting to go to Perth and especially for a stitching related purpose. I would love to go back to Perth for a visit but alas it is a little far from Ontario, Canada. I lived in Perth in 1986 and have been dying to go back for a visit ever since!

  6. Glad to hear you’re going to some more of CA’s classes, you can see a much better picture of the Cottage Etui on Gina’s blog that she finished after the class in London last year. I wouldn’t really describe it as blue more of a pastelly scheme similar to the Pyramid Etui. So you may want to start thinking about a conversion 🙂
