Work has been one headache after another. We are currently in the process of changing accounting software and all information (to the tiniest detail) needs to be entered. Stuff we never had to worry about before now needs to be found, catagorized and entered...all while trying to complete our current work load on a reduced staff. Mind you, I am not really complaining since I am working and hopefully will continue to work with my company. I enjoy working with everyone there.
I have recently had to let some friends (at least I thought they were) slip out of my life. The wife of the couple seems to have developed an unreasonable jelousy towards me and will throw a huge temper tantrum if I even try to have a conversation with her husband. She is usually involved in the conversation. She has even started taking it out on my lovely girl and I won't have it. So, the relationship we had will have to become a part of my past. All this means that I am spending more time at home by myself. And since it is so easy to become depressed when it is just yourself I have been fighting a hard fight to keep my head above water. As many of you know, that can be the hardest thing to do.
Because of all that I needed a few quick finishes so I can do the Happy Dance. I changed the design of the trivets I had planned for my father and his wife. I decided to go with monogram. I will continue with the kitchen towels and another bigger picture to tie all of them together.
Of course, my oldest cat TigerLily had to help me.
I guess I wore him out.
I had to pull out all my progress on my oriental butterfly. I realized that I used the wrong color to start with. I now have to dig thru my stash to find a red similar to replace that already used. I have made a decent amount of progress since then.
I was also able to finish the free independence day eagle pattern by "Stitching the Night Away" and make it into a letter holder. This will be a gift for her birthday next month. Good thing she doesn't frequent the cross stitch blogs. :)
Hopefully I will be able to get some decent cross stitching time in this week end.
TaTa for now,
Angela the crazy cat lady (as my daughter calls me)
