During May for Me, if there is anything that Marcia taught me...
it is to take a Minute for Me everyday.
I've been working hard on that.
For one, I have been working on some Peanuts stitchings for my quilt.
The one that is more yellow is the accurate color,
and I haven't washed and ironed them yet.
Gosh, that lighting is bad,
but if you'll look at that yellow one you'll see the floss is brown.
I originally was thinking all mustard and brown,
but I got a bit tired of it, so I went for some color.
I had some DMC perle cotton, so I tried that.
I would re-take these photos but I ran out of batteries.
Anyway, this time the floss really is blue and I think I am going to go colorful
for the rest of the quilt.
Back in May I bought some ME things.
First I bought the sewline pencil for my embroidery designs.
I like how smoothly it works, but it rubs off way too easily.
I sometimes found myself re-tracing Snoopy two or three times to finish him.
Stick to the cheap washable markers and don't waste your money on this pencil.
(Although it is good for quilting lines).
On the other hand, this little glue pen is well worth the money:
I have been using it on my bindings.
I am hoping to try it on applique soon.
It is nice and sticky, and easy to use, and not messy.
Finally, this week I bought a cheap organizer.
It's nothing that special, but I love it!
I use the monthly calendar to keep track of what I want to blog when.
And I use the daily/weekly calendar to keep my prayer list in order.
Everyone on my prayer list is assigned a day of the week.
It helps me keep focused and keep my promise that I will pray for someone.
I am really trying to work on losing weight.
I think I am going to join With Annie on a weight loss journey together.
The details are just getting lined out so more on that later.
Finally, the most important "Minute for ME" item is my quiet time.
I haven't kept up with my Bible study as I'd like.
I am disappointed that the interaction on the online Bible study isn't as much as I'd like.
Of course, I haven't worked hard at it, but to me it is hard to be THAT personal
with women that I don't know.
I had started a Bible Study Blog, but decided against it when I found the Woman's Bible Study blog,
so I deleted it. Now I am wondering...
Would there be any interest among you to do a Bible study with me on another blog?
I could really use the companionship!
Let me know and we will start sometime in July.
What are you doing to take a moment for yourself?
There is a new medical journal update. I got the results back on my knee. You can read all about it there.
