I had a nice, chill day yesterday. Hung out at home all day, did some reading, some vegetating, etc. ladygwyn joined gossamer_gull and I at The Crackhouse for some quality crafting time. It was definitely nice to have company and I actually felt a little motivated to both start new projects, and work on old ones. I started work on a new mask, which I am happy with, so far. But I need to make a trip to the craft store for the kind of ribbon I want to use around the edges. So that will have to wait until I get paid. On the plus side, by the end of this week, I should no longer be completely poor. Since I couldn't do anything else with the mask, I pulled out my cross stitch and worked on that until my wrists got sore. So that was a fun evening.

Quote of the day

Things overheard at work: 

"Oh. I mispronounced that? Sorry. The only thing I know about California is the Beach Boys."

Why is it that Brynna has the whole bed to sprawl out on, and she just has to sleep in the square foot of space occupied by my newly cleaned and folded laundry? And finally, here is my finished cross stitch project:

  The Castle 

 Now I just need to figure out where to get it framed.

Well. I did it. I finished my cross stitch. After only 6 years or so. A new record. Yay! I will take a picture of it tomorrow when I have better light so that those of you who care can see the finished product. To celebrate the successful completion of this project, I began on another partially completed cross stitch which has been mocking me from the craft drawer for a number of years. Go me.
