wisdom whilst wearing a headscarf...


i am delighted to report,
my
headscarf wearing,
hand stitching,
derriere
has kicked into first gear
and whilst the going is good,
i need to keep on 'a stitching' and 'a penning'.


so i think it would be wise for me to take a little blog break, but shall we have a rendevous time? i think that would be quite lovely, something for me to look forward to, because i will miss my shiny place and of course you, my dearest readers of the utmost kind.

oh my goodness! i have just looked at my Snoopy Calendar, a christmas gift from Our #4, so i might find the perfect date to rendevous and my little eyes note it is the Chinese New Year today!!! how terribly thrilling for little lucky bunny and his cape of crochet sitting all spiffy and 'good lucky' up there on my blog banner.

well that just made me most smiley and even more excited about the two chinese fortunes i have sticky taped on Colin the Computer. they are both from recent fortune cookies that came my way over the past few weeks.
one says
'you will soon vacation in a place of cool climate'
and t'other says
'you have remarkable power which you are not using'
i am wondering if i should dust little lucky bunny today, so his luckiness stays at optimum lucki-ability (what a grand word, lucki-ability, Mr Spell Checker scoffed at it but i rised above his scoffing ways and did not allow it to cloud this happy new year day)

so why don't we aim for Tuesday 15th Feb for our little 'hurrah! back together again' day
and just so you know in advance, cause i cannot wait until the 15th to tell you.
upon my return i will be planning a give-away, to celebrate a lovely happening that happened this week, till then, i wish you a few peachy days, ney a week or so of doing what you like to do best, and if you need a little help with this, do not forget wise 'dottie angel do' number four.
'do feel a little crafty at least twice a day'

Hi Tif, glad the scarf is doing its job!
My "most happy" trio of notebooks have arrived, almost too nice to write in!
I shall take your advice and try to "feel a little crafty at least twice a day".
May I be so bold and offer a little advice to new Dottieangel readers who can't wait until your return - "begin at the very beginning, a very good place to start".
I have high hopes the stitching and a penning will be of the most creative type.

D'you know....I'm off to hospital with my No1 in a few days, and as I was pootling over to your blog I was thinking how on earth am I going to get through next week with NO blog reading/doing?.
So you have saved me the misery of wondering what I am missing :0)
Good luck with you penning ways Tiff.
And happy New Year to you and yours. x

Tif, your blog is such an absolute joy but if you must retire to do dotty-ish things (I'm very much an 'ish' girl) in order that you return refreshed, so be it.

Happy penning and stitching.

Anon, Heather x

Stina said...

Can't wait to see what you will cook up ... so see you later...btw can't wait for the little notebooks to arrive in my mailbox...;0)

Hi Tif,
I'm going to ask my master if I can have some fortune cookies stuck on me too. That would be just spiffing (old english word for cool).
Love, CTC

Theresa said...

I shall miss your pennings and dottie angel-isms, but I look forward to our "meeting" again...take care, keep covered, and have adventures of the utmost craftiest kind.

You will be sorely missed. The 15th February has been duely marked on my calendar.

Michelle said...

Dear Tif...
I will be looking forward to your return...and I hope I can keep up your Dottie Angel Do number four...
I do believe it is time to get out of my rut and move forward into the New Year...Maybe all I have been waiting on is the Chinese New Year to start...
I can't even imagine how excited your must be getting about your book...
I am so glad I pre-ordered my copy as I am sure they will be sold out...
Have a sweet break from blogland...
Full of lucki-ability...

If I read right, you're taking a holiday -- I'll miss you. I have to tell you, your bunny with the cape is significant to me. My daughter was digging around in our attic to find her childhood collection of Breyer horses - and found other things from her childhood. She had something I'd made in 7th grade art class - a bunny shaped like yours, it had a hole where it's tail should be where you put cotton to pull out and use. There is a crack where the hole is.. so I am going to crochet MY bunny a cape to cover it's "owie". Thanks for the idea.

Have fun while you're away.

Hugs, Teresa from Oregon
