Tuesdays Are My Stitchy Nights

Ack...I've spent the entire evening tidying up before the housecleaner arrives for my bi-weekly appointment to find out she's been told to take it easy due to her pregnancy. I'm happy for her but I could have been stitching for the last couple of hours. So time to sit back and relax and try to catch up on gift and exchange deadlines.

I don't have much to report. Yesterday was my long day because of sewing class and I came home and prepped some yarn to start a birthday present. Today was my yearly physical where I got a bill of good health with some borderline high blood pressure which will resolve itself with less stress, more yoga and walking and taking some time to relax and take some nice, big breaths. Seems manageable. Since the doctor's office is across the street from a Joann's I haven't been to yet, I went in and found some fun skulls and guitars flannel for pj pants. Trust me...much cuter and funky than it sounds. It wasn't what I was originally was looking for but each time I looked at the print, I smiled and knew I had to take it home with me...plus they had 3 yards available for sale. Woo!

And as promised, here's my 11 inches of boy scarf. I think I'll have to block this at the end since it's not as straight as I'd like. I also messed up the pattern in 2 spots already but thankfully, this pattern is really forgiving and you can only tell if you look really closely. We'll see if my OCD kicks in and I frog it to start over. Yes, I might because I am a crazy perfectionist that doesn't let yarn get the better of me. Damn yarn!! But for now, I don't have the time to deal with it. I've got exchanges and gifts to work on!

I noticed that NaBloPoMo is next month. A part of me really wants to see if I can do it. Will I stress myself out? Will I come up for yawner things to talk about to make the goal? Will I bore you all to tears and you run away screaming and never come back? Do I really even have that much to talk about? *The boy* might have to give me fodder...cuz God knows he talks enough for like 10 people...at least. Most of it's boring political and financial stuff though. Ugh! Never mind...won't use *the boy* for fodder. Maybe I'll make him play photographer? Are any of you playing along with NaBloPoMo too. Well, if I play along, I hope I don't bore you guys to tears!

Happy Tuesday folks...I'm off to make a cup of tea and work on my exchange.

Until next time...

Cute scarf! Don't frog it, no one will know if you don't tell them :-)
I think the flannel you got for your PJs sounds great, can't wait to see it.

I think your scarf looks great so far. Let's hear it for those forgiving patterns. Hope that the OCD doesn't kick in. Although, it always seems to with me. I don't think that I could do blogging everyday. I probably couldn't come up with anything to say.

The scarf looks great and I think the pj pants will be wonderful. LOL

I think it'd be fun to the NaBloPoMo, but there's no way I could come up with a post every day. I have a hard time doing it every month. LOL

The scarf look good. As to mistakes, all I can see are the ones I'm making. lol I'm gonna have to blog my pathetic dishcloth soon.

I like the idea of blogging daily, but right now I'm feeling a bit burnt out.

Scarf is looking great - love the yarn you're using. I can't wait to see the skull flannel!

Katrina said...

Cute scarf! And funny you clean up for the housecleaner, LOL.

Have fun with posting everyday for a month, I already know I am too boring to come up with that many posts in a month. You'd be drowning in pictures of puppies and slow stitching progress :-).

That scarf is lovely! Don't frog it--only you know where the mistake(s) are.

I don't think I could blog every day. I can never think of what to say, and barely manage once a week!
