15 February, 2018

Good afternoon!  It’s Thursday according to my watch.  I have the Olympics on TV, it’s 60 degrees outside and I have a window partly open for some fresh air.

Yesterday was a good decluttering day…..I donated 3 boxes of rubber and acrylic stamps to a friend, who is really in to the card making, and scrapbooking stuff.  Why?  I don’t have the patience to list one stamp at a time on Ebay, etsy, etc.  I haven’t used them in over 5 years and (if you remember), I’m on a decluttering mod.

So, tomorrow is trash day, and I was a bit lazy last week with getting the trash to the curb.  SOOOOOOO, anyways……

When I started cross stitching in 1986, I was in the Navy and moving around the world. I started buying/gathering all the colors of threads so, in my thinking, I would have what I wanted in case I found a pattern I liked and not being near a store.  Haven’t use them.  So I think some of them have gotten a bit of dry rot now.  So, to the trash bag they go.

Here is a picture of my first cross stitch.  I was stationed at the Naval Reserve Center in Bangor, ME.

So, that’s it for now.
