I worked a split shift today, I haven't done that in quite a while. I know I have some days scheduled in Feb. That's okay, a little extra money is good right now, but I got a call today to work tomorrow and Wednesday afternoons and I had to tell her no, I had other things to do (yeah, like my sampler). Oh, I did some stitching yesterday, but today no such luck (although the night is not over, yet).
I went to Barnes & Noble yesterday looking for a good cross-stitch magazine to take home. I was overwhelmed by all the magazines, they must have just got in a new shipment. Any suggestions out there? I haven't bought a cross-stitch magazine in years. I usually buy a home decorating magazine or a food magazine, which I need to steer away from right now. I love food and I usually spend my time online looking at food sites or food blogs and collecting recipes, that needs to stop and I need to focus my energy on something else because I'm having a tough time trying to lose weight and keeping it off. It's not like I have a lot to lose, but I'm uncomfortable and my clothes are fitting me tight. Just going to the gym is not working out.
Anyway, to all you cross-stitchers out there, if there are any books or magazines that you would recommend please let me know. Like I've said before, I have been "out of it" for a very long time and any news would be helpful. Later, I'll be asking about quilting . . . .
