TUSAL on the first day and last day of the month of March! This is where I'm at today. I'm emptying my ORT Jar today, putting it into a gallon zip lock to save up for the biscornus I have to make in the near future.
I've still been playing around with glass cutting on other jars I have and for some reason keep causing serious cracks, so that process is still a work in progress and my grand plan for gift giving is being delayed...as per usual. Wonder if I'll ever be on time for anything?
My plan for this weekend is to hopefully complete SKULL and create the progression video, but as we all know, this may or may not happen but I am hopeful I'll be close!
This morning I went through the promised items to be sent to my girls and included other things like fabric I had quite a bit of, extra little patterns and have a few fun ideas for non-stitch related items. My next trip to the post office will be epic!
Destinations will be Canada, 2 to Texas, Minnesota, Arizona, Nederlands, Brazil, Kamchatka, Germany, England, Ireland and Bahrain. Worldwide mailing is so incredibly fun!
It's been awhile since I've written about the audio books I listen to while I stitch, but I have to tell you the audio version of World War Z is probably the best audio book I've listened to in a very long time due to the cast who portrayed the different characters throughout the story. I highly recommend it. Another awesome book is Dr. Sleep which is a continuation of The Shining. I read The Shining when it was first published and agree with SK that the movie didn't cover some key points, even though I do love that movie, and listening to Dr. Sleep, there is a part in there where Danny is wondering what his father was thinking while he was sitting in the office where he had his interview for the job at the hotel. I had my headphones on and SHOUT out "ALL MY MEN WEAR ENGLISH LEATHER OR THEY WEAR NOTHING AT ALL!!!" Mad cackling ensued and I might have scared my neighbors, but how nerdy to remember that line from a book I haven't read in forever while listening to the sequel!
Anyhose.....listening to books while stitching gets quite a bit done and if you have a public library that supports Overdrive, I recommend it. It's free, there are tons of choices and what a great way to "read" all the books you have wanted to for so long and stitch at the same time.
Today it is Dean Koontz The Darkest Evening of the Year. I think after this is a book about Pirates, a period piece story and then I'll have to check out more audio books or listen to something I have on my Audio books app.
Okay, off to stitch.....have a beautiful day!
