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.
