Happy stuff

Even though there are some things right now that I'm not too happy about and that concern me a bit (health issues which I may share on this blog at some other point, or not) I try to stay positive and appreciate other stuff that does make me happy. Like this box of DMC floss. I had never bought a whole box of floss before and it's a little bit like opening a box of chocolates (but all with the same flavour). I have already taken one out to use but I'm not telling yet what for. This actually reminds me of that famous quote from Forrest Gump "life is a like a box of chocolates, you never know which one you will get". Well life just handed me a chocolate with orange or liquor in or some other not very tasty filling...

Oh and another 'happy' thing: the sun came out today, it almost felt like spring. Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons but even I am happy to see a bit of sunshine now. :)

If you haven't already, please check out my Stitch me Deadly giveaway which ends tomorrow! And if you are quick you can enter a giveaway on the Crafty Bird blog of some Sublime Stitching Patterns. Next Thursday I will close my shop for a bit (at least a week) so if you think you soon will need a chatty Squirrel and Bear, a Sleepy Fox  or perhaps some stylish Stitchy Postcards   go visit the shop in the next few days.


  1. Awww I hope the chocolate box of life dishes up a nicer variety of chocolate soon.

    As for a whole box of one colour floss, wow, I could do with one of those, I could do with a box of just black, I'm always running out and it's always the one colour they never have in the shop I get my floss from.

  2. I was having a depressing day, thank you for making me smile. That box of floss is wonderful like a box of chocolates.

  3. Nicole,
    Enjoy your pretty bright white flosses. Sorry to hear you are having some health issues. I hope your doctor and family take good care of you!

  4. I love your 'up' attitude! I think a lot of us do struggle with health issues and yet blogging brings us all together and we keep each other inspired by the things we do in spite of not feeling up to par. So you go girl! And know that you are not alone.

  5. Nicole- All my best wishes, and prayers for your improving health situation. I am sorry to hear this, and am thinking of you.
