A Stitching Hermit

With the exception of 11:30 Mass on Sunday, there is very little on my agenda for this weekend.  And since I work Mon.-Thurs., I'll have a three day hermitting weekend.  I expect to divide it pretty evenly between sewing and assembly finishes and actual cross-stitching.  As far as the cross stitching goes, I'll continue to concentrate on the border of Midnight Moogies.  As to the finishing, my dining room table is covered with projects that got put on hold when I broke my last woven weight sewing machine needle.  I have stocked up on every conceivable sort of sewing machine needle, from quilting, to woven, to leather.  I don't want to ever have this happen again.

I also hope to squeeze in some time for baking and a little gourmet cooking.  And, of course, the never ending round of laundry, vacuuming, sweeping and mopping up will be attended to.  Most people fantasize about paying off their homes and those of their near and dear if they should ever win the lottery.  But, I swear, if I were ever to win the lottery, the very first thing I'd do would be to hire some reliable household help to clean twice a week and keep up with the laundry and ironing..

LOL! I couldn't agree with you more about the lottery and help!
I would LOVE to have someone just unload and load the dishwasher! For some reason I have really come to loathe that chore!

Ah yes, the mundane household chores! Oh well. Can't wait to see moogies in a few days.

I 100% agree, I hate chores!

You and me both! If I ever go back to full time work I will definitely get a cleaner even for just a couple of hours a week.
