What is your perfect nest?

Post by Indigo Ros » Tue, 12 Jun 2001 15:46:23



The nest is that place where your best and most pleasurable stitching gets
done. And remember ladies when your adding up the cost of your stach and
counting those unfinished projects, that we do this because it gives us
pleasure to stitch! And the joy we get from it can not be calculated.
Anyway..my perfect nest is my old beat up chair in our living room, a cloudy
to light rainy day, a cup of hot coffee (located away from the stitching but
close enough to reach) the phone isn't ringing, the kids are all out or
busy, DH has busyied himself on the computer and there is a Betty Davis
movie on the telly, ie:Now Voyager or Little Foxs or the like. I love that
nest, it is when God is in His heaven and all is right with the world, and
for a brief period of time I can do what I love so much, and each stitch
gives so much pleasure. I sure hope Heaven is a perfect nest! So what's
yours?
Hugs, Catherine

My favorite place is my recliner with my glass of coke near by with music in
the background (not rock) so I can stitch  and have some quiet time

Mine is my overstuffed chair in the living room, DH in the computer room, DD
reading on the couch nearby, two puppies snoozing at my feet and a baseball
game on in the background.  As close to heaven as I'll get on this earth. :)

My nest is on my couch...and the perfect situation is on the weekend, coffee
cup full and nearby, TLC or Discovery on the TV, and hubby either at work or
playing in the garage.  An added bonus is if there is some thunder and
lightning outside to make me feel even warmer and cozier inside.  (Unless I
want to go out of course, then the sun should take over completely : P )

Victoria,

Austin in the fall, we (you, me & Kristal) should hook up for a lunch and
shopping excursion to Ginger's!

Hmmm.....

I think my perfect nest is on a friend's couch in Winnipeg. This means my
kids are a couple days drive away at home enjoying Dad.

There's a nice eclectic collection of CD's playing and neither of us has to
go to work. Furz isn't chewing on any stray limbs and we're discussing bad
movies, books and life the universe and everything.

((Said friend may not agree, since her perfect nest probably doesn't involve
a houseguest LOL))

Ummm...Victoria, my sister has a Jack Russell.  She is very, very cute but
also a PITA and trust me....SHE SHEDS!   She doesn't shed nice long hairs
you can pick off...she sheds massive amounts of 1/4" white hair...and it
sticks.   Just thought you should know.

LOL!  Most Jack Russells can be a pain in the arse!!!  They are like a lot
of small people - just too much darned "character" (any present company
excepted, naturally!!! Eh Sheena?)

I know all about the big long hairs...I have a dog that does that too.  As
long as you keep brushing the hair will just keep filling the brush.  He is
now shaved for the summer : )

My sisters Jack Russell is, according to the vet and breeder, very typical
of her breed.  She is very hyper and bossy and her attitude is 10 times her
size at least.  She puts my two big dogs in line that's for sure.  The cats
fear her because, as per her hunting breed, she always trys to 'flush' them
out from under the couch or bed or wherever they have taken shelter.

Don't get me wrong...she has my entire family wrapped around her tiny little
paw and when she wants to be cute she'll melt your heart.  However, the
combination of hyper and bossy often gets her into trouble.  Since she is
purebred she has some of the skin sensitivities and ear problems that
sometimes affect purebred dogs.

Oh, but when she looks at you with those big, dark eyes and***s her head
just slightly.....(sigh)

| Drat.  MY dog who we lost last year had  long white hair that I probably
could

Couch, down comforter, Coke, one cat on my feet (but not both cats), baseball
or a movie musical on TV.  Preferably a holiday so that ESPN is showing
baseball all day (or AMC/TCM has a themed movie marathon) and I don't have to
move the cat to reach the clicker.
