Filling you in...

It's been kind of a slow week for the most part. Life is just plugging along. I found an irritated spot on one of my fur-babies' heads the other day, and turns out it may be ring-worm.... *eek*... so it's treatment time for both of them, which included baths yesterday! Needless to say, they did not feel the love last-night! LOL! But they do look, feel and smell a-maze-ing today! I didn't get pictures of the event, as they are quite a handful when sopping wet, but I did get
a picture of them before-hand on their new cat tower. (When they were blissfully unaware of the bath which lay ahead. lol!) This is my idea of space saving! ;)

My little vent for the week would be that I may have to give up coffee. Argh! Over the Summer I was doing great, and then as soon as the weather changed, and I started drinking coffee regularly, I started having stomach trouble. I looked online and found several websites which shared the same information - that people with Gluten sensitivities should avoid coffee, as the protein in coffee affects the body the same way gluten does. :( It explains why I've had the issues lately, so I am going off of it for now to see if I feel better. Good thing we found a really great tea company, and have bought some really good flavors. In fact, here are my two favorites - they are exceptional!  photo 2favs_zpsf11c5068.jpg

Alright... I'm trying to blog here while watching the new episode of Psych, and this is extremely difficult...*haha* I will blog more later. :)

It came!

I finally got the stitching stash I recently ordered. It's my first stash purchase since last July, so I am excited about it. I got a piece of Sugar Maple Fabric "Violets In The Shade", a couple of Caron Waterlilies, (for 'Tree of Hope' & 'Sweet Pea'), 1 pattern, and an assortment of Mill Hill beads. I got everything for about $40.00, which is a splurge for me...but a really good deal for what I got. I'm really happy with everything! :)

Now comes the fun part of deciding which picture this piece of fabric is destined for. I hate putting fabric away without first having a plan for it! A few ideas have already begun to dance around in my head, so I'll do some floss tossing, and perhaps I'll post my final decision later.
(I've gotta save something to post about next time... ;)

I'm open to suggestions!!

Off I go to get some coffee now... toodles!
