The sun is shining.

So when the sun shines so brightly, one must be optimistic. I won't mention that it's also minus six degrees...

Yesterday it was so cold and windy outside that even though I had wanted to go buy some beads and get out, I decided that the house was too cozy and stayed put. I sorted my current stash of beads -- the container they were in got all the colours jumbled. I put my buttons in the former bead container and am thinking about getting those clock maker's containers for the beads. And something for the ribbons. I guess I do need a shelf on the wall over my work table in the studio. I just have to figure out where to put it so I can easily access it and return stuff to it. Anyways, I worked away on my cq embroidery and embellishment. I must say that I'm getting bolder (and I hope better) with each seam.

I wish I could show photos but my camera is in Israel. It was supposed to be taking pictures of the wedding and email them to me so I could "take part" from afar as soon as they returned from the festivities. Several family members have digital cameras but none of them took their cameras to the wedding. I wasn't going to say anything in keeping with my efforts to keep the blog positive but it's been several days since the wedding and I'm still annoyed. There. I've said it and hopefully now I can get over it and move on.

Today I feel lazy. I was up at 6:30 a.m. but decided to put on the classical radio station and return to bed. And I slept until almost 9 a.m. -- and for me that's quite unusual. I have plans to continue embroidering and maybe finally do another baby quilt top. I didn't rush right into it because I don't have a single piece of batting big enough for the entire thing. My friends on one of my needlework lists answered my question about how to join pieces together and now, armed with this information, I'm off to battle.

If it makes you feel any better, I was so drunk the whole night, that you wouldn't have been able to make out anything if I *had* taken a few snaps ;).
