It's been awhile....

since I last posted and I have been really busy.

Back to work part time for the last 3 months and next week see the doctor about my arm - feel that this is as good as it will get with the mobility, 90% straight, but a bad fall and many months of therapy well let's just say - even she thinks that this is the best it will be.

Have done crocheting - since I can keep my arm close to me so...

I have entered a contest for Martha Stewart but to this date did not receive any notification of moving on! So now moving onto my next project.

Been really busy collecting more thimbles so now my collection is up to 866 thimbles and growing.

My most recent ones added was several that were relic dug from civil war encampments. one from Egypt from my swap on swap-bot. and several vintage ones added this week from ebay. need another case - running out of storage space.

So I will be adding pictures as I go along and getting my collection caught up in my database, way behind on the notation.

So need to get my thread selection for Papillions newest SAL! Around the world in 80 stitches.

need to get my sal finished with the design before release. s

So off I go for now - just wanted you all to know still here and need to start blogging as much as I do Facebook!

Hugs and stitches!


  1. Hi Joan. I'm glad to see you posting. I hope your arm gets even better, even though you doubt it. (After all, the docs aren't perfect!) Love the red thimble. It's a gorgeous color!! And glitzy too, whoo hoo!! BTW, I LOVE the the Preston Child books. Each of them has some of his own too, and they're really good as well. I need to go back and reread some of them... Hope you're having a good night!

    1. They are amazing authors aren't they. I only have to get 2 more of the newest ones. but still have about about 7 more to read of their co-author books.

      yeah can't wait till the night i can sleep without a stiff arm - but it still has a way to healing, so i am carefully not to lift anything over 10 lbs but i am lucky to lift 7lbs.

  2. Hi,
