march 4 - another week gone by

I had very good intentions this week, but they kind of all went up in smoke! Work was super busy...our director left for Paris on Friday and we had a zillion loose ends to take care of before she left. This leaves me in charge, but our circulation supervisor is also gone this week, so we are really short staffed. If anyone calls in sick, we're in trouble! Add to this the fact that my work email has been less than reliable for the last few weeks and I am slightly stressed! I rearranged my tiny space on Friday to set up for a new (finally) computer which (hopefully) should be here in a couple of weeks. My current computer is older than dirt and really really slow.

Very little stitching has been done this week...I've been too tired to concentrate...but I have been reading which has been nice. I managed to get my February ornament done...just under the wire again! This is a little design that I found in an old CEC leaflet, called Folk Art Samplings. There are lots of cute tiny blocks to stitch. I think that two more (at least) will make cute ornies. The fabric is what I used for the backing.

I had all my needles ready to SAL on Friday night, but didn't get any stitches done. Maybe before the day is done, I may still make some progress today! Right now, I am watching Bruins hockey. I have a book to finish, and then am planning on a trip to my LNS this afternoon to see what market goodies she has. Hubby has a meeting and this is the one Sunday a month that A& T is open. I also have to see about getting some new pants for work. I've lost some weight and my old pants are way too big. This is a good thing, but I hate to shop, especially for pants because they are always too long. We'll see what I can find.

I was lucky enough to win a giveaway from Patti and wanted to share it. She does beautiful work and I am so pleased that she sent this lovely heart. I have it close to my chair where I stitch and read, so I get to see it all the time.

Thanks so much for visiting...I hope everyone is having a great weekend!


  1. Congrats on your weight loss! Your finish is lovely. Hope all goes well at work. Darlene

  2. That's a sweet ornament finish! Love the heart you won! Hope your week goes well!

  3. It sounds like your week is going to be really busy! Have you been passing out vitamins to make sure no one gets sick? :)

    Congratulations on your ornament finish, the win from Patty and the weight loss! Even if you don't like to shop for clothes, it IS more fun when the clothing is a smaller size.

  4. Your February ornament is really cute! I love the simple text with the awesome overdyed thread. The pom pom edging is wonderful too!

    OMG I hope everything goes well for you at the library. I promise to keep my fingers crossed for you!

  5. Good luck at work this next couple of weeks. Glad you are getting a new computer. I love the cute little ornie!

  6. Work stresses can just drain you sometimes, I hear you on that. Cute little finish though so congrats. CJ in OK ;-)

  7. That is a sweet ornament you finished. I can totally relate about getting no stitching done cause of stressful days at work. I least we have books to turn to instead.


  8. Your ornament is really sweet. Hope work calms down soon

  9. Way to go on your weight loss!! Love the finishing!
