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.
