Yep, my job kicked my butt all week long. You see, I usually get done between 10 and 11 at night. It's a little late for my taste, but I have to earn money too and do like my job. Because of some technology issues, I've had to stay there until 1, sometimes 2 in the morning. That means I slept in most days, waking up with enough time to get ready to either go to class or work again. I did miss class a couple days. Not really a biggie, as it's the end of the semester. I just feel like crap and hope that next week the issues have been fixed so I can go back to normal.
My point? Making anything has really suffered. I did get my ornament out in time, and really can't wait to share it with you. First I want to make sure my partner receives it. I love what I came up with and have plans to make more!
Other than that, I only had time to work on small, portable projects during my waiting time at work. That meant some sketching and a little embroidery. One embroidery project is a gift, so that will have to wait until I finish it. It's not a Christmas gift though (actually, it was supposed to be a wedding gift that was due a few months ago, oops), so who knows when it will be done.
Oh, and I did some brainstorming at work about what I could do with some stash items. I'm not really adding these to my Out with the Old list, except if that happen to be finished as an extra project. Just mentally assigning them to a project. Anyone else do this?
The first item I (finally) finished is this puzzle ball from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. I pieced it together at least a month ago, pinned it together, and then just let it sit by my machine. I knew if I worked on it at home I would have to keep pushing two dogs away from me. It was pretty easy to put together and I would make others in the future to give as baby gifts or something. This one is just for me though.
Alicia Paulson are a long term project. I know there's no way I could finish them for this Christmas, so I'm going to set my goal for next year. I did just buy them recently, so it's not like they have been lingering in my stash for years. ;)
Cheeto, who needed his legs glued back on. I'm the one that broke them off though. I will share what he looks like glazed sometime next week.
