Birthday stash

Yesterday was the start of my LNS' model sale to benefit a battered women's shelter nearby, so I took the day off. I needed it; we are in the midst of upheaval at work, and I am very stressed. It gave me good planning for how my days will pass if I get laid off. I have to laugh and joke about it because it's depressing. But I did talk to my part time boss, and things will be OK, I will get through.

Since it was my birthday, and I didn't buy any other stash, other than floss to kit something up (I know, stop splitting hairs, Rachel, buying floss at Michael's on the 6th counts as s.E.X.), I took my mom up there, and had a little S.E.X. Well it was not a little. I spent my entire check from my part-time job. I bought a fat half of opalescent linen. I didn't intend to, I just needed a strip. But I had to buy the whole thing to get the piece I needed. I think I can dye some of it. I thought it would be nice for my haunted house freebie from Sanman, in like a purple.

I did manage to grab the correct ball of DMC Pearl #8 for my current WIP. I really need to post pix of it. All I have left to do is to do some Algerian eyelets and then to actually do the Hardanger part of the window. That terrifies me. I don't know why. It is gonna look so cute.


Hi! I'm Michelle said...

Happy Birthday, Rachel!

Don't fret over your Hardanger. You are a beautiful stitcher. Once you start, you'll see how simple it is. :)

Ohhhh, sounds like some great shopping there :o)

Hardanger is easy once you get going. You'll be okay :o)

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
