The evening so far has been very peaceful and quiet. I think since *the boy* and I spent the whole day together, he's quiet and much less chirpy this evening. *The boy* likes to talk and usually, at night, I like to sit quietly making my x's while the tv tells me stories in the background. I've been plugging along on finishing my exchange. I am 75% done. Woot! I feel as slow as molasses when it comes to actual finishing and I am trying my hand at a new finish type for part of this particular exchange.
I am dying to stitch! Backstitching and finishing and such is not my idea of stitching. I am going through major withdrawals but stitching has to wait a little while longer. I have this exchange to finish, a gift to finish and pajama pants to sew. I already know that when Thanksgiving weekend comes around, I will have a serious "stitch-ass" weekend. OMG, I can't wait!
I'm not in a talkative or blogging mood since I'm on a roll with my exchange. I don't think I will finish it tonight but I'll get pretty close. Not to mention the yawning is starting already.
This was the extent of my stitching last night...well this and some knitting that I can't show.
This was my first attempt at tassels. I need these for my exchange and of the five I made only one is a little jacked. I'm pretty happy with them!
Tomorrow, I'll share the details of today. It was a nice day...drive in the city, peruvian lunch, ice cream, walk around and visit with my dad. Amazing how the daylight hours passed so fast. Back to work tomorrow...boo!
Until next time...
ETA: 11pm...completely done with my exchange Woot! I love it so much...I want to keep it!! My exchange partner is lucky I stitched her initials on it. This will definitely be a stitch-over so I can make one for myself. Next...knitting tomorrow. Sewing on pajama pants Friday through the weekend until I get them completed.
