Not a good two weeks…fast becoming not a good month

… and the prospects are looking bleak.

It all started with the World Series. I sat in my chair for every inning since the wild card playoffs began and stitched. If stitching could help the Royals win I would stitch.

First let me say that the Boys in Blue are winners 14-10-06 Royalseveryone. There has never been such a group as this (and I was around 29 years ago); these young men are a class act, none finer.

I stitched three round disks (these will be finished as ornaments) and then got the brainy idea to stitch a 3-14-11-14 royal AD baseball for the World Series. I researched the pattern, drew what I thought was exactly what I researched and began stitching. Let me say that while I was stitching it looked great to me.

14-11-14 royal BThe problems began October 29th at 7:15 PM; not only for the Boys in Blue but for the stitched baseball. As I started to put it together I realized my proportions were off. But I decided to preserver and let what may be…BE. Well, we all know the outcome 14-11-14 royal Cof the 7th game and my 3-d baseball was no better. BUT if large cowpie baseballs every come into vogue…I have the first.14-11-14 royal D

Should I try this again I think I will invest in a baseball and take it apart for the exact pattern. But really I’m thinking round disk ornaments are just as good and less time consuming.

And then things went from bad to worse… Our Lucy 14-11-14 lucy dtore her ACL and is not a candidate for surgery (her age and other medical problems keep her from this. So Lucy is confined to the house, no jumping, no stairs, just lying around taking life easy. She gets her leg taped like the sports guys with KT tape (http://www.kttape.com/)…this is 14-11-14 lucy bgreat stuff, going to try on my back. We cut the tape to her size and apply it in a figure eight. She likes this and it comes in pink her favorite color.

But her favorite is the 3 times a day she gets heat on her leg.  She thinks this is the best and would lie there all day if you let her.

And then the weather is the icing on my month…record breaking low temperatures and snow… I am just not ready for this! Especially the snow, it is putting a damper on my social schedule! Our guild was supposed to get stitch-in tomorrow and there is nothing more fun than friends, food and stitching. Well, because of the snow we have canceled this and I’ll just have to sit in my stitching nest and stitch by myself…bummer.

Hope your month is going better than mine…although wherever you are I think it is cold and probably white or going to be white. Thank you for stopping by, I hope you stay warm and find time to stitch today and all week-end!

  1. “Cowpie baseballs”! I almost spit my tea out when I read that!! How funny you are! 🙂 I really like your baseballs. I think they’d be great as little bean bag baseballs. Your stitching is so perfect. … I hope your precious Lucy is feeling better real soon. What a cutie she is in those funky glasses! xo
