*Sigh*

Take a lesson from me. It's much easier to work on your travel project when you actually put the pattern in the project bag with it! So instead of stitching at lunch, I went to Joann's and tried to remember what DMC color I was missing. I hope I picked the right one! Only time will tell...you know...once I get home and figure out where I put the blasted pattern in the first place!

Nothing very exciting to tell. Stitching has been slow and because I can't see very well on the black during the day (?!), I've been holding off until I have a good stretch of time with tons of light. I figure that between the Ott and the Mighty Bright...I'll be ok. Now to find the time! Oh time...where are you?!

The week has consisted of gym stuff. I worked out with a trainer on Monday. About 20 minutes into it, I told him I was going to hate him by the end of the hour. His response? Good, then I've done my job. *sigh* Today, I can finally walk, lift my arms and get up without feeling about 90. Despite feeling sore, I went to yoga last night. Oof...yoga kicked my ass. Whoever thinks yoga isn't really a workout...needs to try yoga. And apparently, the yoga I'm doing. It's not even Bikram...if I did that, they'd need to call the ambulance on me and with my luck, it would be the short un-hot guy who'd have to resusitate me and I'd be traumatized for life.

Today, I got the call from Jill that my pieces are ready! Yay...can't wait! Since I am late on my niece's Sweet Sixteen (it was Wednesday...happy Birthday to Cristina!), I'm having her send Letter C straight to my sister. *Karen!* are you reading this? You need to take photos right away or I'll have a blog riot on my hands! The other piece sadly won't get to be unveiled until October. I know, I know...don't hate. Just think, there's a cool unveiling happening in October! The suspense...OMG!

And even more suspense? I'll be back with an update on Simple Joys and my TUSAL. Be back soon!

Until next time...

p.s. Almost forgot to mention I added a few charts to my sale blog...

Ack! I have done that before - not brought the pattern and inevitably, I'll have got 858 instead of 585 - you know what I mean - that sort of thing.

I've done the same thing. I HATE when that happens!

Melissa said...

Yeah, that yoga can be VERY deceptive! Good for you on getting in the workouts this week. :)

Margaret said...

Don't you hate when you leave something behind that you needed to stitch? I've definitely done that before and it's so frustrating. Good for you on the exercise. I can't wait to see your Jill pieces!

Can't wait to see your framed pieces. I am stitching like a crazy woman so I have several finishes to drop off next month at the retreat.

The yoga bit did make me smile, i remember one lady joining our class as she had been told yoga 'wasn't really exercise but more a mind exercise' boy did she get a shock after her first lesson!

Enjoy your week

Hey good for you with all the fitness activity!! I started putting the new chicken fence up today and can totally relate to feeling about 90 every time I move. Sigh.

I brought Tree of Life Window as a car project on our trip to Maine. Finished a length of floss only to find out that was the last length! And I had a ton of backstitching to do. When we went to Portland, totally forgot to write down which number it was but I winged it, and I was right. Hope you were too!
