OMG. Three short weeks in a row has wiped me out, work wise. It turns out I need that fifth day to do all the things that came up over the other 4 days!
Am currently contemplating the power of Ish (Lynne Cazaly) - how much do I *really* have to do on this? - for much of my to do list. It's very helpful.

My latest stitchy project.
75 days, 15,835 stitches, 20% complete so far (fabric is folded in half...)

It's been a long day at work, so the question is, will I stitch tonight, or will I just waste time on social media???
