Super Quick

Hmmm...it feels like I am always late. I thought the new moon was yesterday but apparently it was the day before. No matter. I spent the majority of the day in a software demo that sucked the brain out of my head and on top of that, Aunt Flo came for a visit and I was tired, cranky and in need of a cocktail and the tv remote!

So, without further ado, I bring you my TUSAL progress. *The boy* took this photo...I think it's pretty nice with the flowers in the background.

It seems like my jar is growing rapidly. I don't really feel like I'm doing a lot of stitching seeing as I am constantly behind and late but the jar does seem to get more and more full. The big blob of red was from my sister's gift and the pinks and tans above that are from the PIF with some orange, black and white Boo Club threads thrown in for good measure. The little blob of teal and pink on top is for my upcoming blogiversary. I might be late to my own party but it's coming along.

This is "girl's weekend". I'm off to the city to do all the stuff I haven't done in a while. Nice dinners out, bar hop, mani/pedi, explore the city...shop, stay in a hotel and pretend I'm a tourist! Aunt Flo is kicking my ass though. AM, don't be surprised if I fall asleep in my margarita!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'll be back with photos from the weekend plus, I hope you all stop in on my party. It's coming soon! Edgar is having a party soon too...be sure to stop by and visit him!

Until next time...

A beautiful TU SAL update! You have such a pretty ORT jar too!

I love ORTs too, although mine are in a basket. I think I need a pretty jar like yours, but as luck would probably have it one of the kids would knock it over! Have a wonderful girl's weekend.
