A bit of chit chat

Isn't Snoopy cute?  Every time I look at him I get a smile on my face and in my heart!  My sister (in-law) got him for me... that pincushion is round.  I have been looking for just the right thing to put it in till it doesn't roll around and this is perfect.  And I get to see it every time I am in my sewing room and a lot of times in between.

I have not worked on the orange leaves in a while.  I forget how many I appliqued when I first started.  But I had more to baste to the background gray fabric and so got those done but have not started applique part yet.

How are you adjusting to the holidays being over?  The past few days have been good for me, though I did spend most of Thursday sleeping.  Did you notice that I had very few words with those pics of Bubbie?  That was cause I just did not want to admit to what I had done.  But might as well admit it;  everyone needs a lazy day ever now and then...I had slept Wednesday night in my chair, got up at 5:30....I cannot remember if I laid down in the bed for a few minutes or if I stayed up and give Roger his meds.  Other than being up a couple times, I slept the day away till sometime after 3:00, and I did not have trouble going to sleep that night.  I even went to bed about midnight, which is way earlier than is normal for me.
I got in my closet yesterday and weeded out a few things, and rearranged some others.  Are you like me and keep clothes till you wear them out?  I hate to admit how old some of my shirts/tops are.  One finally started fraying around the neck...I think it was 9 years old.  What is funny, I don't know if anyone would notice it...the rest of it looks good.  And it is so comfortable...and is cotton.

Then I have a favorite shirt that buttons up the front.  It has a collar that is fraying.  But I cannot bare to part with I will keep it to wear while working in the yard/ just around home.    That leads to the other question...have you noticed how hard it is to find just plain cotton t-shirts  or shirts of any kind?  I keep hoping  that will change. 

Well, I hope this has not bored you to tears...I am watching the second episode of Alone In The Wilderness....good night all.
