Here's what I've been up to lately... remember these:
My project bags were sold at the auction for the Sampler Guild fundraiser. A friend of mine bought them...they made a bit of $$ for the guild. The auction was fun - I picked up a stitched pear and a wreath of BlackBird fabric. I will show those next time as I don't have their pictures on the computer or my phone and they are all-the-way-upstairs.
Why do I say it like that Yesterday was our big trade show at work - I missed the last two years due to my surgery and my mom's illness. It's a long day but fun to see customers I normally don't interact with, employees from our branches I work with daily - a couple new ones so it was nice to put faces to the voices. We put through a couple thousand people, close to 200 vendors. It's a ton of work for our warehouse personnel last week and next and every hand was on deck yesterday, many for 12+ hour days. So I am whipped and don't feel like hauling my fanny upstairs to get the items photographed. Next time...gives you something to look forward to seeing, I guess - hopefully quicker than a month from now.
I have been stitching quite a bit, but not much progress to post - one is a Christmas present and I have gone "gang busters" on it - almost finished. I have a tiny bit done on my sampler posted last time, but not enough to show at this point. Maybe after this week I will have more progress I can post - I am stitching with my friends Tuesday and can't wait...I need my friend fix!
I read another book on my Kindle (and played some games, addicting). The book, Don't Let Me Go, by Catherine Ryan Hyde, was pretty good. It was sad and happy, a very quick read I enjoyed. What to read next...hmmm.
Today my mom is making a St. Patty's Day dinner - corned beef, cabbage, etc. It's always yummy and nice I don't have to do anything other than laundry today. My son and I will head on over there late this afternoon...my sisters and their families will be there too and we haven't hung out together since the birthday celebrations for niece/mom in January. It will be great to see them!
Happy St. Patrick's day, all. Hope you can spend time doing something that makes you happy.
