Good Monday Morning and threading needles

Good Morning

I am running in circles catching up *smile*

Tell me I am not the only one that has bent needles? 
that must be a sign of using them so much !

But you see this needle see that thread! I use small eyed 
needles to close items up and to do handstitching, so threading 
them became a challenging task for me, I normally have 10 threaded at
a time. When I run out, I thread 10 more

we finally got to go get me some new specs
on Saturday, it had been 5 years since my last update on glasses
Yep I got regular bifocals, I did not want to risk getting used to
no lines and it hampering with my production

No my face is not behind them in this photo
a bit too early and to be honest with you
This is my full time job
So on any given day of the week, you will find me in my
jammies, no makeup and most generally not a hair style
I would want to share with folks online *GRIN*

But I am so thrilled that I can see now, I did not realize how
scratched my other glasses were, not to mention I could not
see a thing out of them!! or at least I strained to see

for those signed up for my Blog sale newsletter
Be watching today, I am running so far behind with what
I intended to have done, but I have counters and tables
full of items started, what I will do is send those signed up
a Special coupon code to use for one week in my etsy shop
details will be in the Newsletter

This will give me the chance to do the normal 10 days 
to ship on orders, so I can turn my attention to finishing
all these new little Elves I have promised to get done
that way I can get a schedule down and get myself back to
the normal mode of production and work on orders as well.
NOW that I can see Better 

For a couple of Months my left eye has been swollen up
and like a faucet just dripping all day long.
I had not mentioned this before, but out of concern 
and the fact that my allergies normally bother both 
if that is the problem. We went to get these old eyes checked!

Yes I have the beginnings of cataracts in both eyes but
I am good to go for a few more years on those *MAYBE*
or should I say hopefully !!
Instead my eye issue is caused by my High Blood pressure
*I wanted to give that eye doctor a Fat eye myself*
well yes my blood pressure was up that day! 
we drove an over an hour to get my eyes checked and
the eye doctor was out on an emergency UGH
if they would of been in, I would of gotten my exam and 
got glasses within an hour there for a fraction of the cost!!

So we drove back and I had to pay three times as much to
get my eyes checked with this local doctor, I freaked out!!
sure my BP was up I was stressed about what the problem 
could be? And I knew if I got glasses there it would 
take over two weeks for them to mail them to me??
{so we opted to take my script to another place}
where my glasses could be done the same day !!

By the way when I got home my BP was normal!
Let's just say I won't be going back to this over rated
place again, he was lacking the skills of kindness
or thoughtfulness!! I hate going to an office and 
the minute you walk in you can tell, they are overrated!
And really don't give a darn about their profession
they are there to channel folks in and out and over charge!

OK stepping off of this podium :) before I have to drag 
the old blood pressure cuff out LOL!

Look what came in my mail box this weekend
Isn't she precious, I played along on Facebook with 
Kat Kosch of Kats Country Prims
on her birthday as she shared posts all day 
and I guessed the right answer at the end of that day
and Won this Adorable Annie as a prize
I love my Annie, thank you Kat!!

Don't forget to sign up for my current blog giveaway

Ok back to my work table, I have boxes to pack and
shipping to do
Wishing you a Wonderful day


  1. I'm glad you finally went to the Dr.'s even though the experience was so frustrating. Last year I signed up w a new PC here, had physical etc. Well they never sent me a reminder card to make appointment this year. Then because of the fire and everything we had going on thaat was the last thing on my mind until I went to get some prescriptions filled and the pharmacy said they had expired, so the pharmacy calls Dr. and the office says I'm no longer a patient there???? WHAT? I call them and long story short they DISCHARGED me from the practice because I didn't schedule yearly physical in a timely fashion......DUH! They then tell me they can't renew ny prescriptions UNTIL I come in for a appointment.....UMMMMM I have ASTHMA! So I make appointment with RN practicioner like they say a WEEK later.......they CHARGE me for an office visit to do that?????? and STILL expect me to make appointment w the Dr. so they can re-instate me with the practice......and when I went in to see the RN ...they treated me like some criminal? Yes I have found a new DR!

  2. You work alot slow down we aren't going anywhere... Love everything you make... Crystal.. hugs my dear friend

  3. Hi Miss Brenda,

    Well, I'll tell you a little secret, Mom's favorite sewing needle is bent, it's bent to the contour of her fingers and is the only one she prefers to use. So, see - it's your comfortable needle. (o:

    Love the new specs too.

    Prudence ♥

  4. Oh Brenda, I know what you mean about bent needles. You should see mine. They are very bent. I am so glad you have new glasses. Although the run around was not good.
    Hugs Kay

  5. I don't do much sewing anymore..Lots of arthritis in my hands..No trouble threading a needle though...

  6. Hi Brenda, Glad you finally got your eyes checked. It sure slows you down when you can't see! Try to keep that blood pressure down also - that can do a lot of damage! I just wanted to make sure I am on your email list.
    Thanks and don't work too hard.

  7. So thankful to win your little sweetie (at least I think I did). Thanks again :)

  8. So thankful to win your little sweetie (at least I think I did). Thanks again :)

  9. LOL, I just got back from an exam today Brenda, I thought the same thing about bifocals. Way overdue but they are so expensive, and the optician tells me I couldn't get the cheaper lenses because the doctor only lets them bill out the "premium" lenses to the insurance! Criminal. I have bent needles too. Have you ever tried the small eye needles that thread through the top? You just pop the thread down through the top into the eye, like you are flossing. (I live in my pj's every chance I get too!) ~*~Lisa


I really do enjoy your comments
