So, where have I been, you may have been wondering? Did I forget to come back from Chicago? Nope…had a fabulous time (more on that later), came back, then wham-o…sick. So, my life right now…
Band-aids…check (yeah, I walked a lot in Chicago)
So, let me just say I am not having a good time right now. My Mother-in-Law is coming for dinner on Sunday, and my house is less than perfect. Ack! But, look, I have magazines!
Plenty of reading material to keep me busy while I am coughing up a lung. Needless to say, also, that there has been no stitching going on here either. At least, none that I can show you. My Crazy Cat Lady Exchange piece is finished and will be winging its way to somewhere this weekend. I have also been stitching on the Texas Cow for Gill, but frankly it just looks like a misshapen Texas flag at this point. And while I was out shopping for goodies for my exchanges, I picked up the thread I need for my next two sheep blankets (yikes, it is almost October – how did that happen???) And, as you can see, I bought yarn. Do I knit, no. Do I have any clue what I am going to do with this in my non-knitting-knowledgable state, nope. Can I control myself when it comes to the possibility of making something, not on your life. But, I bought it anyway. I just had a moment of crafty craziness, possibly as a result of the fact that I am freaking out about my Round Robin piece that has to go out on the 2nd, and my Halloween exchange that has to go out on the 15th!!! I am in complete denial that those dates are looming.
But, maybe I can braid it together in a huge braid and pretend I have made myself a scarf. It’s pretty though, huh? Well, anyway…I am off to ask my husband to shoot me with a tranquilizer dart so that I (and he) can get some sleep. Hope you’re all ready for the weekend!! Book club tomorrow night.
I am grateful for being mothered when I am sick.
