take small bites.
The task will not be overwhelming
if you can reduce it to
its smallest component.”

"You're a tad bit pregnant, huh? LOL

Next time you can't get a ring off, put your hand in ice or in the freezer while holding it above your heart. Makes it smaller and the ring should slip off."

haha yes, just a little bit! We actually tried the ice thing, it didn't work. I said I tried everything haha! That ring was just really stuck on my hand, it was swollen for days afterward.

Great post! love the pictures of the cross stitch. I use to love doing cross stitch!

Oh, I used to love cross stitching! But these days? Well, small bites and small stitches. That's my motto for life!
