~ Remembering ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
and a happy Tuesday to you all...
the weather-folk are predicting some falling 'stuff' for us this evening 
and in to tomorrow night ~ a mix of snow/sleet & rain.

~ we'll make sure to have candles at the ready and plenty of wood for the stoves, 
in case we lose power...
it won't bother me a bit to have to stay home due to bad weather ~
that just means more time to stitch!


Some of you might remember this:
it was back in 2015 that I designed my stitched cuff bracelet...
 it reads:
"I Stitch therefore I am remembered"

"I Stitch" pattern for cross stitched bracelet available in our Etsy shop
  I have been wanting to create more designs for cuffs, 
but these will be embroidered, of course!

here is the first one in progress...
~ Strawberry Cuff ~ 

I'm stitching this on good old stained Osnaburg {cupboard cloth}
using Valdani 3 strand variegated cotton floss, 
~ which I am doubling to make 6 strands...

split stitch and stem stitches used so far ~
stems are stem stitch, the rest is split
not sure what the flowers will be yet, perhaps satin stitch or...?

since staying home while I am under treatment for my
Actinic Keratosis and using fluorouracin,
I have been getting lots of stitching done...
here is my nose today, day #8 of treatment:

keeping my mind and hands busy 
~ to keep me from thinking about my nose lol!
So tell me what is in your sewing basket today??
