Just there....

Do you ever get so run down and tired that you know you're being cranky, but there's nothing you can do about it?

More Watergarden....

I'm glad I picked up Watergarden again - I'm really enjoying it, and it may actually be achievable to finish it in 2009!

My "helper"

My cat is exceptionally curious about, well, everything. She thought she'd take a look at what I was doing, and make sure that I didn't leave anything behind in the move. These are pictures from the old condo while I was packing up.

Happy New Year!

I'm a couple of days late posting this, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and all the best for 2009. I'm mostly moved in, but have spent more than a few hours this week moving, cleaning, packing and unpacking. I now remember why I hate moving!

I'm hoping that 2009 brings lots of stitching time. I'm still undecided on whether to get Oriental Harem garden before the on-line class finishes in June. I have several (read: four) Chatelaine's on the go at the moment, but would love this one too. I need more stitching time!
