Testosterone: 2......Estrogen: ZIP!

That's right. I lost! To what, you ask? To football of all things! Although it does promotes male bonding between Alan and Colvin. They both are avid Giants fans and watch every game they can. Sunday being one of them. So I will paint you a clearer picture of what I lost: MY STITCHING CHAIR! I cannot STAND listening to a football game while I am trying to relax with my stitching. I've tried and I just can't do it! So I let the boys have the living room (and my stitching chair), while I packed up my stitching supplies, a spare chair, and floor lamp, and fled to a much quieter place in the house....our bedroom. It doesn't provide the cushiness that my bottom is accustomed to, but it provides me the peacefulness and solitude that I crave while stitching. I even had Christmas music playing quietly in the background. So I suspect that this will become my new stitching home, at least until football season is over!
Thanks for stopping by!



  1. oh dear that dosnt look comfortable for the bottom at all - time to invest in a chair cushion me thinks and a bell to ring to let your son Calvin know that its time for him to bring you in a nice hot cup of tea.

    1. Funny you should mention tea. During half-time, Colvin popped his head in the bedroom and asked me if I wanted him to warm up some water so I could have a cup of vanilla chai tea (which is my favorite!) That almost made giving up my stitching chair worth it!

  2. have to agree on the cushion bit ... certainly will get a numb butt from sitting on there with out one ..lol and your tea sounds very nice too :) love mouse xxxx

  3. Believe it or not, I have the opposite problem! I actually enjoy watching football so when I try to watch it AND stitch, I make mistake after mistake, so I have to choose one or the other. I've tried just listening but it's too tempting to look up and watch! :)


Thanks so much for visiting me here at the Creek!
