Trivia question: Why is it spelled (spelt?) Wed - nes - day?
Worked on the stocking last night and I'm on step 6 of 56. I didn't know if I'd like this beading, sewing, sequining but it is fun to see it come to life. I first saw these felt stockings when my DN J was going to day care at Tina's house. I loved her stockings and wouldn't have considered them if I hadn't seen hers. They're a lot of work and they look really cute hung on the wall for the holiday.
Reading: I'm reading this:
and dreaming my way through this:
There are numerous projects and recipes in this book and I've had pages flagged for years. I did try a few of the recipes - last year (I think) but I want to make the velvet, jester tree skirt; the pointy mantle scarf (already have most of the fabric in hopes); covered boxes; fleece mittens, etc. I'm thinking of fulling some wool sweaters into mittens. Anyway, this is a fun book and I will probably be adding to my Wannabe list.
Celestine Prophecy: Quite different from my normal reads, as DH put it. I have to agree. I wasn't sure if I was going to push myself to finish it but it is interesting and it is not as bad as some things I've forced myself to do. Don't ask.
Speaking of lists, I am putting the purple shorts I made for DS Will on the list of current projects in hopes that I'll remember that I only need to add the elastic to the waist. It sits there languishing and is ohhhh, so close to being a FO.
Tomorrow is my Friday and I'm looking forward to it. I need to decide what projects I want to carry with me to the coast. The socks for DH are very close to being a FO. I think I may hit these in the evening instead of the stocking so that I can get them off the list and onto the feetsies of DH. Depends cuz fat girl has to work out tonight and I rarely get time on work out nights.
Two big events: 1) DS is now a licensed driver! Makes me sad that my youngest is now - totally independent of me. I wonder if he'll make bread and milk runs? Oh yeah, it's a good thing. 2) Coworker MK comes back to work tomorrow. This is the lady whose husband passed away in August. I'm excited to have her back although we'll be losing Kay - a lady who retired the month I started here. She came back to fill in while MK was out.
