I said I would get as far as I could on the ribbon streamers on my design. Not a very specific goal, so I guess I did that. I only did about an inch, but it seems to be as much as I could do. LOL!
I hoped to find some fabric for a skirt to go with the jacket I got from my aunt. I have looked in several stores, but no luck. I am very frustrated because most of the fabric stores nearby have VERY limited selection of apparel fabrics. They are mostly stocked for quilters and crafters.
I did get a couple of interviews done for my job, but not as many as I needed to, so that has to be a major goal for this week.
Otherwise I will just keep trying to find the fabric and stitch when I can. Lots of Easter-related activities this week, too.
I did get several hours of Cross stitching in and the bunnies are coming along nicely. Also this past week my hubby started working on the midnight shift which gives me the wonderful pleasure of helping out with chores in the morning-so not fun
Now for the week ahead, I want to just about finish the bunnies and start to see the end so I can do the back stitching. I would love to finish the wedding sampler so it can be sent to the framers but so far no set date, they are going to have civil wedding so the judge picks the date. And I found out today there is going to be a wedding shower at the beginning of May where this would be my present-no one seems to understand that stitching and framing does not happen over night-Grrrrr and I will do the best I can!
I also want to get several doll clothes made so I can then put that aside and do some much needed sewing for my kids done!

This week - just trying to get motivated again ...
Spring break for Dear Niece's school starts on Friday She is a child who gets bored as soon as she is home on a regular school day and cannot bear to be alone on a Saturday or a Sunday - she drives us ALL nuts wanting people over for sleepovers very single night of the weekend! I can just imagine how she will be for ten whole days! AAARGH! That means that, starting Thursday after school, the telephone will be clamped to her ear 24/7 - either talking to people who just left, arranging her next visit, or on AIM talking to the very same people she was just on the phone with! (WHAT on earth fo 12-year-olds find to talk about SOOOO much?) and I won't be able to get on the internet at all unless I can reach the computer in the wee small hours (the trouble is, with her, wee small hours with her friends and she is STILL on the phone...).
That means I should have a whole ten days to stitch since I won't be able to talk to you all! LOL
CL for "
Look at it this way-no excuse to not stitch!
She is an only child, and right after her birth, her mother was diagnosed with MS.
So couple the only-child syndrome with the fact that there was never going to be another kid and she was royally spoiled.
The parents admit it, but the kid is skilled at wrapping her Dad around her little finger, and she excells at playing one parent off against the other.
Part of the problem, too, is I think she is trying sooooooooooooo hard to impress the "in crowd" at her school (by inviting each and every one to a sleepover with a grand tour of th new house), has recently become besotted with boys (at 12!!! she is "going" with Seth, adn has already had one traumatic break-up which doesn't seem to have lasted since she is *still* "going" with Seth), and is possibly pre-hormonal... Makes for a rocky ride!
But you are right - it is a wonderful excuse for me to "isolate", either in the basement television room (assuming she doesn't have a sleepover, which she prefers to do in the basement rather than her own room!) or the guest room (which works fine in the day, but not at night - bad lighting), and stitch!
Speaking of which, I need to get done with these boards and pick that stitching up ... NOW!
I also said I was going to organize my threads - Did that too!
I also added to my web page, although it is still not done. Check it out under the link in my profile. *satisfied smile*
This week, I hope to get in about 5 hours of x-ing again.
Be the change you want to see in the world ~ Mahatma Gandhi
I do hope that you manage to steal at least a little online time in the next ten days to visit with us, though! She has to sleep sometime! LOL!
Good luck on your stitching goals. The weather is a bit too nice here for stitching much so far this week. But then, when it rained all last week I complained, so some folks are just never happy!
