Mini Staycation


I have taken 3 badly needed days off from work this week.
It started with a road trip out of town to see family.
During the 2-1/2 drive, I stitched on these black cats.
They are made of felt, embellished with floss,
needlepunch, beads and a skeleton fish bones charm.
They are extra-weighted,
which makes them a great door stopper.

I started this day with leisure browsing on the
computer. Usually, I squeeze in as much as I can
before I'm running out the door late for work.

This day will be spent on errands, a little housework
a little homework, and setting goals for the next 3 days.

I want to work or plan on some new projects.


These cigar boxes will be collaged and altered,
once I figure out exactly HOW I'm going to do it.
I have a cigar shop nearby, and I happened to stop in
recently, and to my amazement had a huge selection
to choose from.

I enjoy making needlepunch toppers for boxes,
and just might have a couple designs in mind.

Hopefully, if I'm productive in the next few days,
I'll be posting some of my plans.
