On Wednesday, I took my Microsoft certification exam for Access 2007 and passed with flying colors! Soooo glad that is over. I am now moving into my Project Management classes, starting with Microsoft Project. I am really wanting to be finished with school before the holidays this year. I’m ready to be done! As a reward to myself for my certification, I was able to skip school and go to Barnes & Noble for stitching with a buddy. I had so much fun and we got to sit in the comfy chairs. I think once again I spent more time chatting than I did stitching. Oh well! My stitching buddy brought the new Loose Feathers to stitch on, and she is doing it over one. Sooooo pretty. I wanted to go right home and get mine out…but I am being good (for now). I decided to take Earth Sampler with me this time, since I’m making good progress on it. See the little snake?
Two more fingers and I would have finished the hand. That row of numbers is the bottom of the sampler. After I finish the hand, I’ll move back up to stitch the top three rows. I am loving this fabric, this pattern, stitching on 40ct, the colors, all of it. I am just having so much fun. And since the past couple of weeks have been a little rough studying for my certification exam and then of course, this…
My poor blistered heels. I really needed a night of stitching to relax, and a fun piece to stitch on! Oh, and just to give you a further idea how bad my poor blisters were, when I came home Tuesday night from school, I found this on the counter.
Eric’s been a sweetie and has been reading up on blister care and what to do to keep them from getting infected, etc. He takes good care of me. The vaseline is supposed to keep you from developing blisters too, so once mine heal I’ll be trying that the next time I go walking. I’m taking tomorrow off from my 5k training, since I still can’t put shoes on, but I hope to be healed and back at it next week. And thanks to all of you for your suggestions on helping my blisters!
And in non-blister-related news, I thought I show you my latest stitching purchase. I have fallen in love with the VB Night Owl fabric, and so of course I had to have a little wristlet to go with my ginormous bag, right? And since it was half price, I couldn’t resist.
It’s the perfect size to hold my packs of needles, scissors and a pencil. I love it!!! And it’s nice to have a little bag that I can transfer around to other bags and know I’ve got needles and scissors.
Oooh, somebody needs a manicure. Yikes! Anyway, that’s all for me today. I am hopeful I’ll be getting a whole lot of stitching done on Earth Sampler this weekend. I have book club tonight, but other than that a weekend of some couch time I hope. Have a great weekend!!!
I am grateful for my blisters getting better and even with weird workouts this week, still seeing a loss on the scale! Yay!
