Well Deserved Day Off

I made it through the work weekend! It was an extremely long busy weekend. Sadly I did not finish my Jake pillowcase but today is a day off and I think I can still get on track. I will also get caught up on Drop Dead Diva with Netfliks.

My plans for Friday fell a bit short. However I did get some house cleaning done and I've been working on my Jake and The Neverland Pirates the last couple days. I only have one character to go. Izzy and then I'll be adding a name. Then it will be good to go to its new home. Then on to the house warming gift for a friend and hopefully the last two baby gifts will be done on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then I'll be off and running with my list for the craft sale.

Today's plan!

At some point I will be going out for coffee. I also want to finish my pillow case for a coworkers daughter with the Neverland Pirates. Hopefully that's not too much. Because I would also like to get a bunch of housework done and maybe start on a project for a friend who is moving August first! Wish me

Upcoming plans

My sister and I have decided that we would like to do a craft sale this year. There is a big one here in Winnipeg at the end of October so we're gonna go for it. It will be our first ever craft sale. (All advice welcome. Please!!!)
This means a lot more embroidery for me over the next couple months. I'm looking forward to it in all honesty. It should be a lot of fun and I enjoy making things. I'm sure I'll be loading you and my Instagram up with photos! Tonight after my run I will be making a master list of all the things that I would like to have stitched and I'll be looking to finish a few items that have been waiting for some motivation. Please feel free to kick my blogging butt if you don't see tons of posts and tons of work being done!

I'm pretty lucky in that 1/2 the Mondays aren't the typical Monday for me. I work only every other Monday. That means that today is my day off. If you can call Monday a day off. I had a super list of things that needed to be done and I did them all. Now I'm taking my zero gravity chair and water bottle outside to do some serious stitching. I think its a good reason to take my ipod out and leave my iphone in the house. Perfect me time!
ps. I wish I owned some Tokidoki Headphones!

1 Finished Baby Blanket

So I put up some pictures the other day of a baby gift that me and my sister were working on. So It's finished and its been gifted and it was 100% loved. Both Daddy and Mommy loved it and hopefully little Ms. Teagan will like it when she's big enough to appreciate it. And it will be perfect in the winter time!

Long Time Gone

I've had sooo many things that I wanted  to and meant to tell everyone about and then for some reason my watch gobbled up all my time and forgot to warn me that it was moving at warped speed. Where does time go? I remember when I was younger and I felt like it too forever for Christmas to come, and the 6 months in between that and my birthday was almost too much to handle. Now its been almost two months since my birthday and I still feel like my birthday was yesterday.

I'll do better! Starting now! This is my kitty, you've seen him before. But I love this photo of him. Its dying for a good caption. He was looking super cute and gazing at me with his big green eyes and then I pushed the button on the camera and this is what I got! He's yawning/noise making but not roaring although it does look like he's giving shit to something. And he is standing in a mess of his making from when he cleared himself a place to sleep. I guess I have to love him anyway just because he's too cute!

One Rainy Wednesday and One Flower Wednesday

This week has been exceptionally busy. I worked overtime on Friday. Then I worked all weekend Saturday and Sunday were 12 hour shifts and Monday was 10 hours. And the in-laws were in town. LB's birthday was on Friday and then one of his brothers birthdays was on Saturday. Then yesterday I had my very first Executive board meeting for our union! And then LB and I went for a run. It's was disturbingly hot out. Today is my day off and I started it at 7:00 with an amazing run. It was cool out and there was lightening lighting up the sky but no rain. Now it's raining and it's finally cooling off its wonderful! Which brings me to my flower today. I LOVE this cute elephant fabric!
