Woo-Hooooo! The weekend is HERE!
Work at the office has been WAAAAAAY stressful for the past few weeks--one rush project after the next. And just when I think it can't get any busier, it does. It's hard to complain when I work at such a great place; and hey--these days, just HAVING a decent job is a blessing! But still, by the time Friday comes, I'm much more than happy to get home, put on my comfy clothes, and head into the Sweat Shop.
Tonight I stopped at Bearpaws & Hollyhocks to visit for a few minutes with Gran and several other ladies who were there for the monthly meeting of the book club--this month's book was Happiness Key by Emilie Richards; have you read it? Good book! Anyway, just stopping to look at, smell, and touch fabric for ten or fifteen minutes is an excellent way to decompress after work--I highly recommend it! And seeing friends, even if only for a little bit? Icing on the cake!
Once I got home, Hubby ordered pizza, and while he went to pick it up, I changed my clothes and made a cup of tea. A little later, tummy full of combination, thick-crust pizza-licious wonderfulness, I made good on my escape to the Sweat Shop. Within an hour, I finished appliqueing the 4th of 13 basket blocks, slapped it up on the design wall, stuffed the freezer paper template pieces into a plastic bag, shoved thread and needles aside, and reached for the L'Amour charm packs. Ahhhhhhhhh! THIS was what I was waiting for!
Yes, as a matter of fact, I DO feel a compulsion to make something that will match my new blog background. Or maybe I picked the new blog background to match the L'Amour fabric? Well, one way or the other, pink is happening here at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure.
So here's the plan: Saturday morning, I'm going to sleep until I wake up. And when I do? I'll stumble out to the kitchen and get myself a red and white polka dotted cup of fresh brewed Starbuck's Christmas Blend. Next, I'll sit down right here and visit with you for a little bit. Before long, though, the pull of L'Amour will be too strong to resist any longer and, still in jammies, perhaps with a refill of my red and white polka dotted coffee cup, I'll head to the Sweat Shop. Ah, YES! HEAVEN!
I love weekends!
