Journal notice and a comfort stitch!

Good morning!  How's the weekend going for you?  I have cats in the house, snow spitting on my house, and this in my bag...
 
Give me stiff lower count linen, a size 24 needle, and I'm happy.  Ahhhhh.  This is me!!  Scarlet Letter's Bliss and Hinckley are two of my favorite small samplers.  So quick, easy to stitch, and simple in design, perfect when you need a comfortable project.  I've been wanting to stitch Lydia again since she left home in a giveaway.  I had a wide frame chosen for Frances but I think both will be sewn and hung from a peg or cupboard.  This chart was sold the end of February on EBay and looked like a newer print version.  Mine is from 1983.
A few journals will go on sale tonight at 8 pm EST, and there won't be any more of this style.  I receive emails scolding me for not posting at the sale start to remind you so I will! You will choose from the drop down menu which design you prefer.  Click on the Journal tab under my blog header to go to the sale page.  If you are redirected back to the sale page, that means they have sold out.  I've been searching for others and found a few that can be ordered but they are nicer than these paper mache and will be more in price.  I have decided to offer these for $10 including shipping, US only.  Shipping can't be combined because more than one jumps to Priority weight.
There are not many available so please don't order more than two.
 
I need to remove this 40 compression stocking and take a quick shower.  I have the full length with the hip panel and waist belt but still need the glue.  Friday it will come off until injections start again.  Wearing latex gloves to get it back on helps tremendously.  The first time I ever wore this heavy compression and removed it, it bunched at the ankle and I was losing circulation to my foot!  Could NOT get it off but eventually I stood on the end of it while pulling my leg out.  Summer is coming - don't forget to buy a bottle of It Stays for your sling backs and top straps. 
I'll leave you with a video I saw on Karin's blog Countryfolk Keepsakes.  She is so funny and her work is wonderful.  I'm a country music fan and totally clueless about current pop artists.  I'd heard of Pharrell so clicked on, and can't stop bouncing.  Hope it gets you smiling.
 
Clap along if you feel that happiness is the truth!

Love your start on Lydia, Marly! Sorry that it is spitting snow at your house. They say will might get some on Tuesday into Wednesday. I hope not!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Your stitching piece is so pretty! Good luck with all that compression stuff. Doesn't sound like much fun.

We've got more snow coming tomorrow and Tuesday. I'm sick of snow!

My mom uses rubber gloves to put her stockins (that's what she calls them) on and she has a stocking puter on-er. It's a funny looking metal frame thing that somehow makes it easier to put the stockings on. I've never seen her use it, but she swears by it.

Love your new start.

I absolutely l.o.v.e that song!!
There is no way anyone could remain in a bad mood after hearing that. Instant mood lifter!

I too am a country music fan. Never heard of Pharell in my life. What a great song. What a great video. Oh my hip hurts just watching those folks!!

Hi Marly,
I love visiting here and seeing what you have going. Always something new for sure.
I had compression stockings on when I had both my surgeries this last year and they are miserable to say the least! I had to have my husband help me every time.

On to the prior post - the Crabbies hit me every once in awhile and I just let it happen - not much you can do about it I guess.
