funny that i wrote the title of this post last night at about 1am and then did not have the mental capacity to even form a thought. the good news is that i was quite motivated to stay up that late and get quite a few things finished. for the first half of the evening i worked for Daniel, something i pick up now and then when he is slammed with deadlines and has something my remedial skills can do. well once done with that around ten i was surprised by the energy i had. so i finally photographed gifts i mentioned oh so long ago. the they are now all packaged up along with two others that needed to be done. now it is just a matter of writing the notes and getting to the postoffice.
yesterday afternoon i was reminded by a photo Lisa took. i had gone to the fabric store sometime last week for some blue fabric to finish Miss A's curtins. i was so good going straight to the fabric i needed and then up to the counter to get it cut. i even remember thinking to myself 'wow nothing else?' well there was not enough fabric left on the bolt and they needed to do an item check. so what did i discover but some amazing fabric set up right next to me.
it was there just for those who have no selfcontrol. but they are great and i know just what Christmas gifts they are going to turn into.
yesterday afternoon i was finaly able to get out the the burbs to get some crafting books. it is always hard to make the trip because of traffic. it seems as if the time of day does not matter it is alway bad. so yesterday i braved it and was quite successful with my finds. i needed to get a book for a friend i was swaping with and since i was there i figured i would save myself a few trips and just get what i wanted then.
the books are amazing one is all on skirts and another is on jackets, shirts and pants, and the third is alot of felted pieces. i guess i hope to get sewing some clothing for myself sometime soon. if nothing comes from these books for awhile it is ok by me at least i know they are there when i need them.
Note: it has now taken me a good hour plus to write this post. everything takes longer with a kid.
