Making my list

I started making my list for the fair last night. I have some ideas, but the list seems so small and yet so undoable.

It was a very long day yesterday. I had to go to work early because work was afraid the inaugural traffic would be bad--it wasn't. I stayed at Mom's house, and was moving away from the city, but they had State Highway Admin, and, later, state troopers at the on ramps. Traffic home wasn't bad. I followed SO home, by coincidence, but I didn't call him to flirt. I figured he'd had a bad day if he was coming home at 6:30, and he had; he spent 5 hours on a nasty job, and was kinda crabby and growly til he decompressed. We did try to watch the inaugural balls for a while--wierd because he picked it and he doesn't vote, but I left him alone, even though I don't care to watch other people party if I am not invited-- but he was annoyed that CNN wasn't actually letting you listen to Beyonce sing while the President and First Lady were dancing, so we went upstairs and watched Speed for a while. And I rubbed SO's back; he was really sore.

I broke down and bought Ink Circles' Calamity Pippi and Beau Leggy. I've been eyeing them for two years for my aunt, the Ivy League cowgirl, and they would make a cute fair entry. I think I have the right fabric in my stash, if I can pry it out of my own hands.

My friend Kathy sent me the newest issue of World of Cross Stitching. It's a good issue, it has a Solo cat design, and I love him. There is also a gorgeous Asian Heart that I am jonesing to make as a pillow. I think it would work for our living room because we like Asian things, and our colors match the ones in the pillow. I'll have to look at it.

Hi Rachel,

Oh, you'll love stitching Beau and Pippi - they're such a fun stitch! Here's mine: if you want to check out my fabric choice.

Poor SO :o( He's got one good woman there to take care of him though ;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
