January 3 - hi ho hi ho it's back to work we go...

It's amazing how some things just never change...some days I think maybe I am ready to retire...except I really can't yet. I really do like my job...it's just that sometimes toxic people can really mess up your day...

I finished my first book of the new year...Threadbare by Monica Ferris. It's the latest in her needlework shop series. I like these stories, although sometimes it takes me a while to get into the story. This one was pretty good though. I've just started Unraveled by Maggie Sefton. This is a really good series with some good characters...knitting mysteries. I've got a whole stack of Cozies waiting for me and I can't wait!

No stitching tonight, but I spent some time going through my stash looking for a design for a round robin. I think I've found one I like...it's a friendship sampler...I'll have to sleep on it, but I think it's a go.

I signed up for Becky's BAP challenge...I'm going to do Quaker Christmas II from ByGone Stitches. I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish it this year, but it will be fun trying! I have my pattern and threads...just waiting for some fabric.

And now I think it's time for bed...

Thanks for taking the time to visit!


  1. Good luck with your BAP challenge. Quaker Christmas is a beautiful piece

  2. good luck dear with your bap challenge..sending you hugs xx

  3. I know what you mean about working. I need more stitching time. I hope my new schedule of Wed off will help my yearnings. I'll still need to work 40 hours but ill take a vac day every 2 weeks and work 5 hours every other Sat. I sure can't manage PB less then 40 hours unless I win the lottery!

  4. ooo good luck with your bap challenge and I've just read blackwork and loved it ... never heard of her before soo going to try and get some more of her books :) love mouse xxxx

  5. Good luck on your BAP Challenge. I am thinking about joing it - I might just chicken out though - LOL!!

  6. I just finished up Threadbare also. I enjoyed it as well. I too love the cozy mysteries best.

    You should join good reads. If you're already there, I'd like to have you as a friend. :).

    I agree with your comments about retirement..
