Car pics

I picked up my baby at lunch yesterday. Isn't she adorable? My coworker, Karen (AKA Queen of the booty shot) wanted to take some photos of it. She's jealous, but in a good way, LOL. We took a couple in the garage, but the light was not good.

I do have to tell you, these were not easy shots to take. "The girls" didn't fit easily through the roof, LOL. I had to shimmy back down through, LOL. Coworker was LAUGHING at me, stuck in that roof. And I did take my shoes off to stand on the seat.

I worked last night at the theatre. I asked my supervisor for some extra hours, just so that I can keep paying ahead on my bills. He asked me to work the subscriptions table, so I was there til 10PM. Our current show is not selling that well (it is the most horrible play I have ever seen, just god-awful, and I should have been able to put the time I spent in the theatre seeing it on my timecard because it was NOT pleasurable--it was work), so I had time, but I spent that on the phone with my car insurance, getting the insurance transferred over to the new car. But after the show was open, I stitched on Stitchy Acres. (I'll try to get photos)

I really really like this project. It's not intricately shaded. Even though it's all kind of specialty threads, they're easy to work with, so I am enjoying it. But I wante to get it done before the next one gets here. I made good progress. And I got paid to stitch.

After I got home last night (and took my mom for the obligatory spin around the freeway), I pulled out one of the charts I want to stitch for her. Imagine how delighted I was to find that, for once, I had ALL the threads I needed to start it. And I probably have the fabric too, just have to find it. I don't have the fabric for the Victoria Sampler one I wanted to do, have to order that, but I've, um, spent a lot of money this payperiod :), so that will have to wait a bit.

First stuck in the trunk, then stuck through the roof.. you really need to me more careful. ;-)

Congrats on such a wonderful new car. You deserve a little fun.

You just can't help yourself when it comes to getting stuck in the car, can you? LOL

WHOA! That is one sharp looking car! I especially like the black color -- makes it look even classier.

Hope you have many happy miles with her!

WOOHOOOOO!!!! Nice wheels! You must be SO happy :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
