It seems to me like the day crawled and flew by, in turns.  I was hungry before lunch – and so engrossed in work at leaving time I almost wished I didn’t have to rush to make it through traffic to pick up the kids before 6:00pm.  (That’s when after school program ends)

I whipped up a crazy restaurant design – and can’t wait to turn it into something usable!

 
It kinda still looks like crappola – give me time give me time!  Tomorrow we get portraits done for the web page :S I am not happy with this thought – meant to get my hair cut (at least) on the weekend but didn’t so it’s gonna be my really growed out blond ends… Oh dear.

Didn’t finish Aly’s last pillow tonight – but I started it!

   
The last strip of white cat fabric I sewed on is about 3/4 of an inch shorter than I need it to be.  Do I pull it off and re-do OR just make the other sides thicker or add leopard to the next layer ??  I feel like framing it out  is the best idea.  Than all it needs are the back pieces !!!!

  

Today was a crazy hectic morning – I actually made it to work on time!  Booya Grandma!  (That’s rare – I’m usually 10-15 late sometimes 30 💩)   Our secretary didn’t show up at work today so guess who got the call forward – that’s right me!  Cause the designer is supposed to do call forward and transfer calls to Craig – 95% of all calls are for Craig.  Why don’t we call forward to Craig? Because Mr. Boss wants me specifically to answer the phone.  I honestly think it’s a gender thing.  Why?  Just meet the strutting chauvinistic pea fowl and you will understand 😉 

Anyways I got the work done that I needed to, managed dinner, karate, yelling till hygiene happened , and finished reading Harry Potter & the Philiosophers Stone to Hazel & Helix.  Then made pillow – now want sleep!!

   
 

Hayden is be the last Harry potter book-we have catching up to do.

  

So – I got a little excited and picked up a walking foot – spray adhesive, thread and batting yesterday!!!
So I laid it on the bed this morning cause I have to cut it and stitch it so it will be the right shape.

Then I made a critical error and left the house to take my girlfriends car to get some new tires.

While I was out stupid cats damaged the batting. Grrrrrr 😡
Oh well. Also want to make stockings so I bought some Christmassy fabrics!

I wasn’t supposed to spend any money so I’m hoping Chris doesn’t freak out when he finds out I bought like 7-8 yards of stuff…
I really like the mouse one:

It turns out that Friday night was a night of good news in varying forms for me. Firstly I acquired some evidence for my case – and things were already looking really good for me – therefore I have icing for the cake? Or just more skeletons in the closet? Not sure because sometimes having all the things I knew about brought into the light makes me feel so foolish for staying so long. Secondly my lovely Christopher was blessed in just the perfect way (I won’t go into details) but it lead to a happier and more chaotic weekend than originally anticipated.

So I stayed up stupid late tonight making 4 patches:

I made 16 of them.

And then General Khan heard me talking to the kitties and had to get in on the action!

So I feel good about my progress. I have a total of 20 blocks of 56, so 1/3 of the way there!

Ok collapsing time!
