Busy week

For being a short week, this one was a very busy one and I haven't had much time to blog or to read all of the blogs I try and keep track of. I think I'm going to need to start a blog rotation! There are so many great stitching blogs and projects out there it's easy to get distracted and lose track of time when reading them. This means less time for stitching so I'm going to have to manage my computer time a bit better. Especially now that I've signed up for a number of exchanges and deadlines loom. Karen sent out the exchange partners for the Christmas ornament exchange and I can't wait to start thumbing through all my JCS ornie issues.

Today I met a friend down in New Hampshire and we went to the beach. It's always heavenly to go to the beaches here after Labor Day because there's hardly anyone there. Most people have finished their vacations and the kids are back in school. While it wasn't warm enough for me to get into a bathing suit, it was lovely to sit and bask in the sunshine for a few hours and catch up with a friend. On the way home, I stopped at an LNS to pick up three threads that I was missing for current projects and I actually made it out of the store with exactly what was on my list and not a thing more!!! A miracle for sure - but only because I've been doing a bit of on-line shopping lately and I was feeling guilty. I plan to do quite a bit of shopping at CATS in Hershey in a few weeks so I didn't look too hard today.

I just love the beach. A few years ago, a friend and I went to Cape May NJ about this time of the year. The beach was practically deserted. What a lovely, relaxing weekend that was, spent with a great friend! I envy you, Pat, I wish I WAS at the beach!!!

BTW, nice going to the LNS and only picking up thread, you have way too much willpower!

I am also trying to decide on an ornament for the exchange! It is fun starting new projects (that is a bit of a problem with me though...)

You have willpower to walk into a LNS & ONLY buy what is on your list. When I walk down the aisles of needlework places -- stuff jumps into my basket. Just jumps in & begs me to take them out of there ; ) lol. Enjoy the day.

I think the only reason I was successful leaving the LNS with so little is that it's being sold and there really wasn't anything new to buy. They must be holding the inventory to keep the value at a set price? Believe me, this was a rarity!
