I didn't need another show. really I didn't. And, no, I was NOT looking for one either. I mean come on -- my weekly "essentials" include:
Perry Mason (daily)
The Closer (Kyra was robbed at the Emmys..... again)
In Plain Sight
The Girls Next Door
CSI Miami (I may forgive Bruckheimer for last season's ending, but it's a near thing. Of course, if I did kill him for what he put me through in that episode then what the heck would I watch on TV???)
Without a Trace
Law and Order Criminatl Intent (only in reruns -- somehow I can deal with the tension when I know it is "done" but not when it is "happening" -- yeah, I know, it's TV lol
Law and Order (only up until the lawyers show up)
Is that the list of someone who is looking for more things to watch on TV? So I really think the television gets lonely and comes looking for me. you see, last night I made the error of thinking "I'll just look at the first couple minutes of The Mentalist just to prove I don't really need to bother." Well, it happened. I watched the whole dang thing and I'm positively entranced. Sigh. I'm doomed.
At least with all these tapes of shows to keep up with I will have plenty of things to entertain me with I do the next finishing marathon. Actually, I am probably going to have one the weekend after next. Wanna join me? come on -- get those ornies dusted off and keep me company.
I can't show you what's been taking up my stitching time because it is my Fall F&S for April. Nope, no peaking! I could show you her floss toss....
The front square is done. Now I need to know what to do about the back.
Beyond that, allow me to show you some fresh stash. Yes, it is true. I need fresh stash as much as I need a new TV show. lol What can I say, apparently stash conspires against me. See, somehow I ended up on Silkweaver's site, and somehow I just had to check out their new shopping system. While checking out said new shopping system I found this solo:
which is absolutely perfect for Enchanting Lair's Believe which I got last year at the Pals Fall Fling--
Which I really, really want to do. Anyone want to join me? I'll be starting AFTER (by George it WILL be AFTER I finish my Black Swan dragon.)
Anyway, while I found that perfect solo I saw this little smiley face on the apge saying they were offering "Happy Packs"-- grab bags of aida or evenweave/linen. Yup, I had to have one of those. And look at the joyous goodies that came in my Happy Pack:
Cool eh? I'm excited. The green is a solo 28ct lugana. The tan is "Heritage" hand-dyed, 32ct jobelan. The blue is "Powder Blue" 32ct opalscent jazlyn. I can hardly wait to find the perfect patterns for them. ..... Oh no. What if this compels me to start a new UFO. Let's face it, we have to be honest-- it will become a UFO. That's just the story of my life.
