Oh My!


I promised you beefcake, right? I always keep my word. Most of the time.

I've been overwhelmed by the number of you who visited me on MY day AND who actually came back again yesterday! Incredible! I should warn you though--I'm not ALWAYS funny. Sometimes I'm serious. Sometimes I'm bored. Sometimes I'm creative. And sometimes I'm just very tired--like tonight.

When I'm not busy being a comedy blogger and a quilt designer, I'm a legal secretary. Right now, we're getting ready to go to trial on a fairly complex case, and it's meant some pretty intensive work during the past week and a bit of overtime here and there. Except that tonight it was more than a "bit of overtime"--tonight it was around three hours of overtime.

I haven't seen the inside of the Sweat Shop for more than a few minutes all week--except maybe to sit down and draw my pattern illustrations, and that doesn't really count, does it? ARGH!

Okay, I just slapped myself out of it. Are you having fun on the blog tour, finding all kinds of fun projects? I'm amazed at the cute stuff my fellow bloggers have come up with. And today is STEFANIE's day! Stefanie is Little Lady Patchwork and I think you'll find her project is just as excellent as the others have been. Want to see it?


Stefanie used the Giddy line for her project just like I did--well, actually several of us used it. I really need to get some of that cherry fabric in the first couple hearts on the left--it's very, very yummy, isn't it?

Oh, and before you go, speaking of yummy . . .

You made me laugh so much just now!! Beef cake...HA! No one is always funny... but most of the time the best people to know are the ones who don't take things so seriously! I really needed a great laugh today - so thank you, and thanks for sharing that yummy man with us he he. I'm a newer follower, and I'm so glad I found your blog!

I'm 9 months into this very rough pregnancy, so the beef cake at the end of the post is entirely unappealing. In fact, I think I'd like to throw something at him. haha! Instead, I'll take the first cake...with a glass of milk. :o)

I was a little disappointed when I saw the top picture of your beefcake. But I kept reading, and so glad that I did. Even though I'm an 'old maid' I do like to see some 'eye candy' once in a while. Thanks for sharing.

You sure are a busy woman. How do you find the time - and yet be so clever and funny?! Thanks for both "beefcakes." I knew you wouldn't disappoint your blog followers. (No sure which pic made me drool more - yum!)

Cyndi said...

Well, Kim, life is serious, boring, and dull some of the time and we just have to roll with it. I do think that roll with a good sense of humor, though!

I laughed so hard at your "beefcake" at the top of the post. That was perfect. And as I'm "maturing" I find myself less drawn to the type at the bottom...hello, menopause! Ugh!

Have a wonderful day!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Marie said...

Hmmm. Am I the only one who thinks the one on the bottom is a little TOO much of a beefcake?!

Angie said...

You are a hoot! :) Love the looks of that 'beef cake' :D . I've also been a legal secretary in another life, and am married to an attorney. I feel your pain, girl!!!! And send lots of hugs and sympathy...if you were closer, I would give you tea to go with that. :D

Oh my be still my heart, I may need recusitation after getting to the end of your blog. I was thinking you can keep that beef cake, now I'm thinking I'll take him thank you very much. Love your blog, just think all that overtime means more fabric for the Sweat Shop and now you will have the weekend to drool over that & your beefcake....

Darlene said...

Ooh La La! He is easy on the eyes. When you are tired and stressed, it certainly helps to maintain a sense of humor. Keeps you from going crazy!
