FRIDAY...ALREADY?

They say that time flies when you're having fun, but this is ridiculous.  This week has simply flown by, and it's not because I've been busy or productive or vacationing on some exotic island.  I mostly slept and ate broccoli salad this week, so I'm not exactly sure how Friday got here so darn fast!

Well, I've made it to the top of Long Spring Panel.  With a little luck and a few hours of stitching tonight, I might actually finish this one in time for the snow that's supposed to arrive over the weekend!

I have truly loved each and every stitch of this piece, but will definitely remember to use scroll rods or shorter stretcher bars on the next long panel that I do!  If memory serves me correctly, I used scroll rods on the last long LJP piece that I did and there was a lot less wrestling of equipment.

Stewey has threatened to call the authorities if I don't make a Target run today.  I am normally very diligent about keeping a well-stocked home (with bath, cleaning, and paper supplies), but I have let that slip to the point that we are down to the last drops of laundry soap and the last roll of paper towels.  Horrors!  I also noticed that Little Lord Fauntleroy's cookie closet looked a little meagre, so I suppose a trip to PetSmart will have to be added to the list also.

Damn dog.

Well, kids, the weekend is upon us.  I'm going to get these errands done and then come home and fret about the housecleaning.  I really do feel like I'm living at Grey Gardens, and the fact that Stewey has taken to wearing a little turban, a bathingsuit, and pantyhose isn't helping matters any.  Oey.

Do something fun and wonderful and then come tell me all about it!

  6. The Spring Panel is so wonderful, the colors marvelous, and, as always, your stitching is an example for us to follow. Wunderbar. I am glad that someone else begins to panic when down to the last roll of paper towels.
    I think my weekend will be calm and somewhat boring. Looking forward to your next post to cheer me up. Of course I realize that cheering me up up is solely my job. Have a great day.

  8. Is Stewey singing show tunes? Then you should worry. I wish you lived by me, it would be lovely to have a stitching neighbor. Also, Stewey could chase the cats!
