Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

Lena, thank you! That was a wonderful article to read.

Math continues. But I'm now closing in on Q3.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

I am glad you enjoyed it.
I used to do tapestry weaving back in the 80's but it is incredibly slow work and takes a lot of yarn. Plus there is sitting in a scrunched position for hours at the time. I would start sitting properly but end up scrunched into a ball.

The cold spell has just started and I am already having cabin fever. With the wind this morning it was -41c (-28c on the thermometer) and one got a headache just walking into it. The snow we had last night was drifting into foot deep ridges across the sidewalks.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

Lena, so sorry to hear about the cabin fever. Our weather hasn't been that extreme. Hope you have lots of yarn to keep you occupied.

Bookkeeping is done minus one line item. I get a commission for the items I have in the gallery. The last entry on December 21 was incorrect. I've sent an e-mail asking why the amount was different than the same priced item sold the week before. So far, no answer. But it is the weekend. It's less than the usual amount. Even if it was more, I'd send a query. Waiting on that before I file my report with the state, due on the 20th.

Now, I've rekindled my love of miniatures. I found a couple of kits to make miniature books. So, I've been putting together little tiny books. I really should get back to making critters, but they can wait another day or two while I play.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

That's a great link, I have a thing about tapestries.

My sister lives in Edmonton. She's crazy she walks to work every day, no matter the weather. She's a pathologist at the hospital there and also teaches at the university. She doesn't live too far away though and says with the traffic and parking, it's easier for her to walk.

We'll get the bitter chill after you are done with it, stay warm!

Debby, that sounds interesting, I didn't know they made kits for that.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

Virginia, your sister sounds like a very fit woman.

This is my month to experiment I guess. I bought another kit. This one to make a chain-mail bracelet. My eyes aren't seeing the tiny rings properly. I think I need new glasses. Not what I need to have happening while DH is on night shift. Appointments in the late afternoon on his off days are hard to come by. So that project got set to one side. What I did manage to do looks great. Back to making tiny books.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

My mother always used to walk to work here in Edmonton too . She worked at the provincial legislature buildings as a librarian for the tax department. Parking there is a problem and the buses didn't quite work.
The parents called the climate invigorating....

I took a picture of myself before going out and as soon as I can resize it I will upload it.

Darthmother




The dog refused to walk this morning. It was -38c with a windchill of -48c I really can't blame her.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020



You look exactly like my sister!

We had ice rain last night, didn't look like much but oh it was slippery! Then the fog rolled in as the it all warmed up.

I'm having to watch my computer time, it's giving me eye stress, so aggravating!

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

Lena, great photo. Don't blame the dog at all. Not sure I'd want to do my business at those temperatures. Keep warm.

Virginia, be careful on the ice. Sorry about the eye strain. Do you have computer glasses? When I was working I had glasses that not only were the correct focal length but had a coating on them to cut the glare and blue light to keep my eyes from straining. In the meantime, there are fiber arts to do instead of computer time.

Still making tiny books. Tho' I'm starting to feel guilty not making critters...

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

It was snowing today and -28 c. My joints hurt. It must be the weather, I was having breathing problems too. Yesterday there was ice fog and it was colder.
The house is dry, only 25% humidity.
Only a few more days of this cold. But the joints and especially my right shoulder hurt so I am having to reduce my knitting.
I am in a lousy mood.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

Lena, spring is coming, honest. Sorry you are hurting so badly in your joints. Have you tried a heating pad for some spot relief? I don't blame you for being in a lousy mood. I would be too.

I've set aside making tiny books to get back onto critter making. My frame of mind is a bit better now. It also was a bit of a kick in that directions since I sold another dragon yesterday. The first of many is cut out and in process.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

I am in a better mood today. I got sleep. The previous night got disturbed by the dog freaking out at 1:30 am because my starter thing for my car was beeping due to the battery being low.

I went out and got groceries this morning. It was the same temperature as yesterday but the sun was out. I have gf chocolate cake..... I feel much better

Today I am knitting something loose , on big needles...

Congratulations on the gallery selling another critter, in January!

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

Lena, I'm glad you are feeling better. Chocolate cake is a great mood booster.

Still sewing the same critter. My hands just aren't what they used to be. Neither are my eyes. This whole getting old thing is a mess.

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

Hallelujah! It is -5c with the sun shining. It was lovely to walk the dog today. It is amazing the difference it has made to my mood.

I just got some new glasses. It helped with seeing things. I now can stop using that excuse...

Re: Stitch in Time January 2020

Lena, glad you were able to get outside. New glasses means you can see better. That's got to feel better.

Still sewing critters. Nothing else new to report. Tho' I have to admit the weather is rather mild for this time of year.
