I am working on “A Journey with Sibbel” needlework by Susan Greening Davis and Sally Criswell. It is the story of an 18th-Century Orphan’s Study of Needlework. As you read her story, you stitch the piece she was learning her stitches and how to make them. I am working on Motif Panel No. 6: Tree with Tulips, Winged Heart, Birds with Grapes. I am trying to upload the photos, but apparently the iPhone is a bit slow (or I am a bit slow, LOL).
Anyways, I can’t figure out how to send a photo from iPhone to laptop email program. Guess I got a bit of homework to do. I will NOT be one of those seniors citizens that needs a teenager to figure this out…….
There are 14 panels and each one stitches up pretty quickly. I have more problems in joining the panels together. I belong to a stitching group that is meeting on Sunday and I would like to have most of this thing done.
On another note, I have been learning about Essential Oils. I put 2-3 drops each of Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Tea Tree Oils in a small diffuser to see if it would clear my sinuses at night. It did! Now it didn’t last all night, but enough for me to notice that I could breathe thru my nose.
So, I decided to try something else. Sometimes I have troubles getting to sleep. The brain just doesn’t stop! So, I saw an article that said to use the “Peace” from Doterra. I used the rollerball and rubbed on the bottom of my feet and palms of hands. And I fell asleep pretty darn quickly. Now, I don’t know if I was just really tired and rubbing my feet helped……
Okay, I’ve got the washing to finish up and got to stitch!
