My 1000th post--Twisted Tuesday

Well, this is my 1000th post!  

 In sipping my coffee and thoroughly enjoying the quiet house this morning, I came back and found this atop my robe, which was taken off for the 1000th hot flash this morning. Feeling like a queen myself, off work today and sipping coffee and reading--meditating, I came back to this scene:

Yes, this is the Queen of the Sofa. She loves the sofa, although it is 1000 times bigger than she is. :)

Me: So, Abbie, honey, would you like me to pour you a cup of coffee too?


Coffee too? Yes, make mine with sugar and 2 creams please.


 but please do not disturb my meditation. My mantra is TREAT. Sleep. TREAT. Repeat.

Back in to her yoga position, the queen is in complete peace............

For we both count our blessings today first, then sigh, and  Embrace Serendipity. Let go.

From the book I hold dear at my bedside, Seasons of the Heart------

Creative activity immerses us fully in the here and now, and at the same time it frees us.

We become one with the activity and are nourished by it. We grow as the activity grows.

We learn who we are in the very process of not thinking about who we are.

My newest find. A glass paperweight with a bird. Love it on my desk!

A sneak peak at my color choices for a breast cancer awareness sampler, hopefully, to be model stitched by October 1. XX my fingers.

 Always Hope

This is a peak at the inspiration for this sampler. Always Hope for the Cure is the center of this sampler.

Much thought went into making this sampler. I'll post progress as I stitch along on this one. I plan to stitch this on 32 count antique white linen and frame.

I just want to take this day, my 1000th post, to again thank each and everyone of you who take time out of your day to read my blog.

 Comments on the blog, and through personal email, have touched my heart, helped me grow on this journey, and are each appreciated in a special way.

Embrace Serendipity,



  1. Gotta love Abbie!

    Congratulations on your 1000th post!

  2. Lol! I had an image of Abbie drinking her coffee from a little espresso cup! So, that would be 2 cream 2 sugar and about a half oz left in there for the coffee!! lol! Wouldn't it be darling with one of the little demitasse spoons, too?

    Love that quote about creativity--thanks for sharing! Enjoy your day off and your 1000th post!

    I'm off to paw through the S-T-A-S-H that just arrived via mail...though I wish I'd ordered more of the threads for it! Love your banner pic (thread heaven!) ALSO, the sidebar design you're using is so charming.

  3. Congrats on your 1000th post! Wow!

    Abbie is such a sweetie - hope hers was decaf or she might be bouncing off the walls!

    I really love the colors and will be looking to see your next piece!
