Funny bargains with my hubby...

dragon cross stitch
Not too long ago my husband & I struck a deal. I will get to purchase a cross stitch pattern/kit for every fountain pen he buys, even if the pen is for me. LOL! AND...for every two projects I finish, I get to buy a new one. For the record! This was NOT HIS IDEA. This was mine. I needed a way to manage and/or curtail my stash building. (I'm hoping to forestall those people who might object to my hubby limiting my purchases! We are a team!)

Today I had to have another cortisone shot in my knee and I joked with the doctor that I should get a sticker and a lollipop if I was brave. He said no lollipop (and truthfully I do need to lose weight so that's cool) but two stickers. The doc forgot. (In his defense, 46-year-old women don't usually request stickers if they're brave when they get a shot with a VERY LARGE NEEDLE.) ROFL!!! So on the way home I had the BRILLIANT idea to get a cross stitch project instead and hubby said of course!

I love the days when not only do I get to peruse stuff on 123stitch.com...I get to order. Wheeeeeee!

I'm sure everyone agreed that the new cross stitch project will be well deserved, after all, brave enough to have the shot and forfeith the lollipops...

Good on you! ;)

Hahahaha! I'm trying to avoid stitching today to give my shoulder a rest. I think I will follow your lead and reward myself with stashy goodness for being so "health forward". :p
