I finally have a craft room. It's in my BF's house. He has asked me to move in with him in the near future, and he GAVE me the room that was formerly called "the shoe room" as my room for stitching supplies. It's a cute room, west facing, so in the afternoons, I will have light to stitch by. I can even get my Dazor light out and use it, but I will have to put something over the magnifier, as I have nightmares of the house catching on fire because of my stupidity. He even said we would figure out how to get all the supplies in the room (God bless this man, as I seriously doubt he really knows just HOW much stitching stuff I have), so YAY. But I know that I need to start sorting through my stitching stuff and getting rid of some of it. Or at least making it portable. Not that I mind doing that, I can even send it to the little E-bay seller store on the way to my parents', so I don't even have to LIST all those leaflets. I know that his doing this for me is a tremendous commitment, and I think it will probably be my favorite gift of the holiday season.
That said, I did not get much stitching done this weekend. I was so busy all the time. I worked a full day on Saturday, then was exhausted and didn't wake up til noon on Sunday, then had some errands, including getting my nails done, on Sunday. I realize that getting my nails done isn't necessarily an errand, but this was one of those weeks when it was a chore. My nail tech, who does great nails went on maternity leave in October and someone else has done them for the last couple times. She is not as good as my regular lady, and it showed. Out of my 10 nails, 7 needed to be picked off and redone. Now I don't know if you, kind hearts and gentle readers, have ever had acrylic nails picked off, but it is like having your fingernails themselves picked off. Well, I guess technically, they are YOUR nails, as long as you paid for the last fill. Anyway, it hurts like one would imagine such a thing would hurt. One nail makes me cry, 7 makes me want to crawl under a rock because my fingers are so sore afterwards.
I did manage to get some work on Hummingbird Trellis done. And I discovered something. I was using my 8" Q snaps, but I lost one of the clamps on that one. I was kinda bummed, until I found my 11" ones. I love them. I got a lot done on it yesterday. The bigger q-snaps make it easier to work with.
