I'm not Goldilocks nor do I have golden hair but I did feel like Goldilocks the other night. I finally sat down to start my exchange piece and grabbed a needle off my little magnet...stitched a few stitches and deemed the needle too thick. "This needle is too thick!" Then I grabbed another needle and threaded it and realized it was more like a sewing needle and too bendy with too small an eye. "This needle is too bendy!" That just wouldn't do! So off goes Goldilocks...errrr...I mean off I go to the big ol' craft cabinet to grab a size 28 Bohin needle and then everything was just right! "This needle is just right!" *sigh*
Except it was late by that point and I didn't continue stitching!
I have been incredibly scattered this week and haven't stitched much of anything. I have frogged a lot though. I will have to show you that sad, sad picture comparison soon.
I feel exhausted! I try to go to sleep early but my brain is always a buzzing to begin with but now it's buzzing with interest rates and financing options and the internal debate as to why all the colors I like for a car come with cream interior and I **don't** want cream interior!! Argh! I'm pretty confident with my financing now since I've pre-qualified for two loans at very good rates. But since I have very good credit (woo!! that was a fab realization yesterday), I can probably score better financing through the dealership through one of those purchasing incentive deals provided they have those sales going on. I feel pretty confident that financially...I can do it! Woohoo! I'm still scared to deal with the salepeople so I told *the boy*, it's his job to be the bulldog.
So this weekend, I think I will start hitting the car lots just to sit and see if I like the dash and take a test drive or two. That will be in-between the housesitting, hitting my neighborhood's "Art in the Park" Festival which is one of my favorites and the usual errands, tv, stitching and baking juggle.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Until next time...
