Yay something small

To hopefully get the ball rolling on stitching this year. I spent all day working on this! :D And watching The Tudors.

So anyway, here is my first small finish for 2013! Glaceon!

I am almost done all the Eeveelutions, with only Leafeon to go. :) I don't think I'll start it right away, rather I'll start on Follow Me 2 since I have all the threads for it now.

Anyway that is all.

Ahoy.. again

I can't believe it's February! Month and a half and I'll be 35, whoosh the time is flying by.

I am still not stitching very much. My friends have me gaming (I was just gifted with Guild Wars 2) and after work when I watch Tim play his games, I'm beat from work and just feel like laying in bed.

I did try stitching last night, and of course my arm still isn't better so it was being all achy and I still have no feeling in my index finger so the needle goes all over the place and is dropped more than I'm holding it! WOE IS ME, PEOPLE.

This hasn't stopped me from buying even more stash, mind you. My second order was all the DMC Thread needed for Follow Me 2, and then these things:

All Hallows Mini - Cross Stitch Pattern, Waxing Moon designs
Black Cats Halloween (One Color Wonders), Waxing Moon designs
Halloween Alphabet - Cross Stitch Pattern, Raise the Roof
Weeks Dye Works - Okefenokee
Weeks Dye Works - Pumpkin
Tiger Profile - Needlepoint Kit
Pilot - Cross Stitch Pattern, Fire Wing Designs

and my last order which has just been shipped

Duality - Cross Stitch Pattern, Fire Wing Designs
Threadworx Floss 5 Yard - Blue Swirl
Threadworx Floss 5 Yard - Blue Navy
28 Ct. Gray Jobelan 18x27
28 Ct. Light Blue Jobelan 18x27

I'm good for this year now, I think!

I've also found a new obsession, DAVIDsTEA. Aww yeah, This has made me a loose leaf tea fan. The free shipping in Canada if you spend 50 or more is not helping at all. I tried the Mama Mia tea at a client's house and it was so good. Her daughter let me smell the other flavours she had and I ended up ordering a bunch of them. Cocomint Cream, Mama Mia, and Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait were the first three. I'm awaiting Forever Nuts, Chocolate Chili Chai and more Strawberry Rhubard to get here lol. SO GOOD.

Speaking of shipping.. the good old US Postal service have almost DOUBLED their shipping rates to Canada. What gives? For me, they're actually going to lose business because I'll really be shopping from US stores more carefully. I used to be able to get things cheaper even with the shipping, now it's going to be the same or more than what I can pay for here. So yeah, good going, USPS!

So the TL:DR version, not stitching, still buying stash, obsessing about tea. :)

My next post might be to go through my stash and take pics of all the to do things for my own reference. :)

Hallo 2017!

I have a finish for this year! This project I only work on at work, when the client doesn't mind and I have the time. Usually during...
