HELP.....

......I'm SUDOKU-ING AND I CAN'T STOP!!!!! Okay, I've fallen victim to the latest craze....I swore I would not.....said I could not! But then Sweetie Man gets me hooked....line and sinker!!
I really didn't think I could do it but I did. I got frustrated at first, but then I googled strategies for sudoku so I had a plan rather then just willy-nilly placing numbers and getting frustrated. Once I got that down, it was all over. But ya gotta remember, my brain is getting older and I need to keep it active. I told my son that I'm going to stay alert so that when I'm 105 he cannot swindle me out of all of my millions...yeah right!
I must say tho, when I purchase this T-shirt, I may be taking things a little too far.....


Tho you must admit, wearing it could be interesting (okay...get your minds out of the gutter!)

I started another cross stitch.....sorry! It's just a little one and it goes with the forum I'm in also....so it's okay! I have been wanting to try a Brittercup Design ever since I saw them. I love working this....


I would like to make three Brittercup ornaments for my dogs and one for my cat. Something about the simple design I just love. I just started this one and it's working up so fast.

Last, I think I'll leave you with a little quiz I found on Anne's blog. (if this didn't link for you before...try it again...I fixed it...sorry!)


You Should Paint Your Room Blue

Peaceful and soothing, blue rooms have been known to reduce blood pressure.
Your blue room will encourage deep rest and great sleep.
A blue room is the perfect oasis for a stressful life.


So, till next time, yinz guys.....(keep those comments coming...5 days to go!)

I can do the real easy suduko ones, but ones beyond that just frustrate me.

Britty puppy will be very cute when done. I seen a couple people where they've done it and put the dogs name on the stocking instead of the word dog. Looks like you made a good start.

Sudoku rocks, that's for sure ;)

Why do I have to get my mind out of the gutter? It is very much at home there.

Some how I've avoided the Sudoku phase-probably because my ex-husband loved it.
I've seen some others with the puppy ornament and it certainly is cute-good luck on finishing it!

I sudoku too (and call it SUCK a doo)-- I have a book I got at barnes and noble... it took me a while to catch on to it (hubby always did the ones in the newspaper) but when I got it..look out...gotta exercise my nearly 50 year old brain!! lol!!

mine was blue too! :)

I like your new start. Brittercup Designs usually stitch up pretty quickly.

I'm crazy about sudoku too! I have books tucked in nooks all over my house and even in my car. (However, I only work on the puzzle in the car when I'm waiting for my kids to get out of lessons.)

The cross stitch is so cute! I'll have to see what color my room should be...

Britty Puppy is looking great!

Suduko has gotten me as well. I found I was doing them a bit more yesterday than I should have. Monday is usually heavy cleaning day at home and I didn't get much done. ;)

Your Britty is looking good!

Kare said...

Sudoku is the best.
totally t-shirt worthy.
Your cross stitching looks good, Lucy.

cute piece you are working on!

Sydney said...

So far I'm managed to avoid Sudoku. If I can just hang on a little longer I might avoid it completely. :)
