Do you Love options? I have one for you today for Jolly Bar 3

Join me MONDAY at 8:00pm est   !!

How is your April starting out? If you find it was bit bumpy, today is a great to call in a 'do over' .. Start fresh, we have a lot of April left.  Am I the only one that thinks in 'months' like that?


My goal to cross stitch each day is going pretty well.. one day I think I only did 2 stitches, BUT that counts!!  I am also looking at how I want to plant this year. I am hoping my left wrist will be strong enough, but I may have to go very slow. For those that don't know, I broke both my wrists 9 months ago and even though you see my wavning my hands around again (thank goodness!) they are far from totally back to normal. The left is lagging by months, it also had more injuries (bone popped out of the socket, pins to support broken bones healing.. etc).. so I don't have much strenght in the left and it hurts more than the right. 

(photo is Bees wax, great for any thread to keep it from tangling )

So right now I'm not sure how this will effect my gardening when I have more pulling and weight baring. I'm optimistic that I will be good! I even bought a bag of Gladiolus to plant, I've not had them for years.
