Hello fellow stitching addicts!

Here we are, the first day of March and I'm still not smoking. Woo hoo! But I've given up nicotine and delved even further into my stitching addiction. Oh well, my Visa may be melting but my lungs feel great! hahahahaha

I've started two more BAPs for a total of three new projects started in the last month. What the heck am I thinking??? Well, "Break Time" by Stoney Creek isn't a BAP but I have just gotta have it for my dining room wall now that the kitchen and informal dining room are done with a John Deere theme. "Solitude" by Mystic Stitch definitely qualified as a BAP and it's for a formal dining room wall. Now, my latest start is "I Corinthians" by My Big Toe for my bedroom.

But wait! There's more!!! I'm stitching "I Corinthians" on 40-count Newcastle linen by Silkweaver. *mwah hahahahaha* The color is Hint of Heather and I'm using Royal Purple and Sugarplum by Gentle Art Sampler Threads. Ohhhhhhhhhhh, it's lovely already and I barely have one corner of the border done. Even Brad has peeked over at my work and commented already on how much he likes it. :-D

I still need to post a bunch of pictures -- the new house, WIPs, new starts, etc. I'll get to posting pictures again as soon as I can.

That's all the news for now. We're all doing great and hope you all are, too. Happy stitching!

Congratulations on being smoke free! I quit 5 years ago and have never looked back. Very soon you will be doing something, and it will be something that you used to smoke and do, and you will begin to wonder how the heck you ever managed to smoke and do the task at hand. Its almost impossible to think of doing the two things at once. Is everything beginning to smell better and tasted better yet? My favorite is when you go to a place and you can smell the smoke on others. It will drive you up a wall very soon.

Just think, Visa is happier and you still haven't probably spent as much on stash as you would have on smokes.

I am so proud of you LoriRay. Now if we could only get you to curb the running with scissors we'd have you cured of all lunacy. (NOT)

Love Ya Girl Friend! Kimbear
