Some of my mojo is back

I guess it must have been the rain that was making me so . . . blah . . . on Friday. Or else getting rest. I hadn't realized just how much working my full time job, then going and working a 10 hour day on Saturday was affecting me. I did stitch over the weekend.

My birthday is next week, and it was time to renew my driver's license, so I hauled myself over to the MVA on Saturday morning. I think I hit a new record wait time. I got there at 8:42, was out at 10AM. Don't ask me why it took me 10 minutes to get my license renewed, and there were people who were sitting at the stations for a half hour. I don't understand the phoenomena. At least the computers were working; they were not working the last time I renewed, so I sat for an extra half hour that time for that reason. My picture is, of course, bad. I swear, I don't understand how I can look perfectly normal, hair be decent, and the minute that I step in front of the camera, my neck expands, my hair looks like the cat threw it up and I GRIMACE. But I'm OK with that for now. I am not sitting in the MVA and having random strangers ask me if I believe that the people in the driving test line are illegal aliens (what do I look like, like I have an IN with these people?), not for a while now.

Anyway, after that, I went to my LNS to pick up a couple things I needed. I am a member of the Sanman board, so there were some cool Halloween freebies (you need to join the board to get them)that I printed off and took in to kit up. I like Sanman designs, I've done three or 4 so far, I think she is a tremendously talented designer and so generous with her freebies; how many freebies out there are good enough to take a blue ribbon at the state fair? So because she does them, I could afford to splurge a little and buy some nicer fabrics to stitch them on. And boy did I . . . I bought 4 fat 8ths of WDW hand-dyeds to do them on, including a vibrant green that I can only describe as 'hot'. I am hoping to work on at least one of the freebies tonight. They are for a Halloween tree, and I won't get them done this year, but maybe next years . . .

And I worked on Mom's tabletopper. I made some good progress on it, but I don't like it anymore.

ROFL! What a mental picture you have given me but I know exactly what you mean :o)

When is your birthday????

I love San Man patterns too and Sandy is SOOOOO generous :o) They will look great on those new WDW fabrics!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
