Random Tidbits

- I love the Overdrive app on my iPad.  I decided a little while ago to stop buying books for my Kindle app and instead utilize the free books from my library on my Overdrive app.  What a joy it has been!  I have not bought a book in over a month now.  Instead, I have directed that money to stash.  LOL.  One step at a time here.  I am trying to curtail my stash buying also, but we all know how that goes.  Between the Samsarah Perpetual Calendar and the CCN Santa's Village I am technically set for the year, but I have decided I want to start the CCN cottages from this year over on perforated paper.  I found a set of scrapbooking paper that features each month, and they would just look perfect on it!!!  Yes, I am insane.  LOL.

- I know I flit back and forth a lot between stitching on fabric and stitching on perforated paper, and stitching in general, it seems.  I really have come to the conclusion of how much I LOVE stitching on the paper.  The Lizzie Kate 6 Fat Snowmen?  I restarted on Antique Brown perforated paper.  And I found a wonderful piece of scrapbooking paper to put them on.  I am going to stitch each piece of the border and each chart individually and cut them all out and arrange them on the page, or two, as I am pretty sure they will all not fit on one piece.  Stay tuned for pics!

- I have started on my Samsarah Perpetual Calendar...finally!!  I don't have too much done, but some is better than nothing.

- Still waiting for my lilac Walker bag.  I will post a pic.  I should receive it in a few days.

I'm also stitching the SamSarah calendar and am finding that I prefer the perforated paper for some things, also. My DH is stitching some bookmarks and chose paper for those, as well. I say go with what makes you happy! :)

Sounds like you have a plan or two, like me. Stitch on whatever makes you happy - it is your hobby after all.
