I should be getting some chicken breasts in the oven but no, I'm looking at CCS sites, ordering some things, & making yet another post to my blog. At least this is the only one today ... so far ... lol! Thankfully the initial cooking of the chicken breasts won't take much time since they will be baked afterward in marinara sauce. Chicken parmesan today : )
Look! Look! I finished stitching the pumpkin pinkeep chart that knocked me off the wagon!
I found the best online CCS shop today ever! Unfortunately I found it after I had ordered several charts from another site ... sigh! I say "unfortunately" because all the stuff at this wonderful shop is currently 20-25% off. I could've had a nice savings ordering the same things from them. Ah well, them's the breaks sometimes.
Betty commented on my CCS-themed posting yesterday & said "Does Shirlee's husband hate me for getting her started on this new "old" love? Is he seeing $$$ signs?" Believe it or not, he is absolutely thrilled! He of course takes credit for getting me started with CCS in the first place ... & rightly so ... & he was always pointing out new kits & patterns I might be interested in back in the day. I may have mentioned this before but he is quite a special guy. He is very encouraging regarding anything I attempt to do. When I did a lot of quilting, at Christmastime he would travel around to different fabric shops & buy me a fat quarter of this & a fat quarter of that until I ended up with more fat quarters than ... well, let's just say I have a lot of them : ) I was the envy of all my quilting friends who stated their husbands wouldn't even drive down the same side of the street as a fabric store yet alone go into one & buy them stuff! He had been disappointed both times when I gave up doing CCS. He never warmed up to me knitting or tatting or making bobbin lace or getting a torch & a kiln & making glass beads or any number of other things ... but he has always enjoyed seeing me stitch. So ... to answer Betty's question ... he is very happy to see me stitching again : )
I had better go toss those chicken breasts in the oven : )
