Almost done filling my lunch box for the exchange

I don't think I am doing it right.

Well, I know I am not doing it right since I didn't get a pencil box. But my lunchbox is so cute. And bigger than the pencil cases they had at Target today. I bought her some crayons, and some apple pencils, and some really cool animal shaped rubber bands, and a pencil case. Tomorrow, I'll look for some fabric and put a skein or so of floss in the pencil case, rolled up. If I can get a small chart of a September-y thing, that will go in too, along with some graph paper. I didn't know we were supposed to stitch anything--I am little dense about these things. I hope my partner likes it. I tried.

I am struggling not to start some new Dragon Dreams charts I bought--ordered them early in August, so they don't fall under the no new stash rule. I ordered "Kingdom of the Ice Dragon" and "Santa's Dragon." It's killing me not to start them. Santa's Dragon goes along with the last two ornaments she did, and it's really pretty. Plus, since I still have the ornament from the 2006 JCS kitted up to do for Brea (Chotgun, I told you I was doing this for you, didn't I? Not as your this year ornie, but just cause? Anyway, you are getting this one, too, LOL). And I have been drooling over the other one for at least a year, I just need a different color fabric, so it pops . . . maybe a purple. See, I will never win this fight.

I love checking your blog each day so I thought it was about time I tell ya :) Go ahead and start the "Santa's Dragon." You know you want to and I have it in my stash and you might be just the excuse I need to start too!

I'm sure that whatever you do will be fine. I'd be happy with what you've described :o)

LOL! You've got another case of startitis do you?

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
