The Doodlebug

The doodlebug bites you and you start to doodle. Contagious it is.
It bit me when I was looking at arttealife, after it bit her... do check out her link for Gratitude jounals... fantastic idea.

This one I named "Announcing Winter".

Just a doodle...
to let you know...
Don't forget your Vitamin D!
Some symptoms of not enough vitamin D are very low energy levels, depression, and chronic pain. I thought all that was just part of aging in this crazy busy spinning world we live in. My doctor checked my D level and I was low. We are treating it with supplements now (about 2 months into it) and it has made a world of difference. I have energy I haven't had for 20 years, my lower back and sciatic pain are at about 1/3 of what they used to be. And it's easier to keep a smile on my face. Funny, I always taught my kids that happiness is a decision, not a result of circumstances.... which I still believe... but.... I have been amazed at how much easier it is to decide to be happy when your body is in balance nutritionally. It just makes sense that the Sunshine Vitamin is an important key!
So.... Get your D levels checked!

"Penny" necklaces...

This is the Russian Olive tree way out back - the olives intrigue me.
Annie is doing fab. She is healthy and heartworm free!
Not to mention getting pretty fluffy again...
we will let her hair grow now until Spring.

Haven't stitched much this week.
Did make a couple necklaces out of felt and cotton "pennies".

Happy Weekend!

Did I mention I like weekends?

I do. I work weekdays and have weekends off to catch up on everything, including stitching.

The last 2 blocks are finished now with backs and borders. I contemplated folding them into envelope purses but couldn't bear to fold up the designs...

A nice Saturday morning is up early... drinking coffee... and dreaming up a new idea to start stitching on.

I have a small stack of these primitive 9-patch blocks and figured they make great starting bases. The pink one got a bird this morning. I think I will attempt a wreath of leaves and birds...
Have a happy relaxing weekend!
