When the phone rings…..

when the phone rings in the middle of the night,
or in this case
very early in the morning,
and you jump out of bed and run to answer it ~
hoping you don't trip over the cat or fall down the stairs, get your nightgown tangled in your ankles,
{or inadvertently answer the television remote because you're not wearing your glasses}
OR when that moment of panic strikes you and you think 'oh no' …
and proceed to clunk yourself on the head {hard} with the receiver while answering said ringing phone
because you have now imagined everyone you have ever known is in some sort of trouble or distress?

….ever have that moment?
I did ~ this morning.
BUT I'm happy to say that it was a GOOD phone call from a far-away friend in South Africa!
Seems as though my Dear, Sweet Miss Cucki needed to renew her LSHC membership with me
..and she wanted to do it personally!
How's THAT for a devoted member & Friend?
I was SO relieved to hear her sweet voice 
...and knew at that point all was right with the world!

{We Love you Miss Cucki ~ Hoping you heal well & fast so you can get back to your stitching!}

when I finally calmed down 
from the shock of running through the house like a blind chicken wearing leotards
and settled back into bed, I had an attack of the giggles….
I was trying not to shake the whole bed at the thought of what I must have looked like
{that is if anyone other than Iggy was watching} 
and he was…from high-ground atop the dresser. Smart Cat.

Of course I couldn't go back to sleep.
too much to think about as my brain began it's normal (?) mind-chatter ~
oh well, time to start the day…I'll nap later ;)


Here is the little project I'll be teaching at the class
~ for the Virginia Guild of Needleworkers on Jan. 15th

"My Threads" pocket ~

The members liked the 'Spools' pouch that I made designed for the 
April/May/June Little Stitches Handwork Club {LSHC} project ~
... so I used that as inspiration for their project.

{{and if I call you better answer!}}

* Blessed be *

Wow! I wasn't as lucky when the sheriffs department called late on a Sunday night last February to tell us my brother had rolled his car and died on his journey to our home to move back. I had him moved in an apartment and ready to enjoy being with family again. I am thankful it turned out well for you. Those phone calls are the worst.
Blessings for a wonderful holiday
Iley from Kansas

Glad all was well and that you didn't step on the cat or break a toe...

This pocket is lovely as is the spool pouch!
