Life has been pretty hectic and slow all at once. This girl keeps me guessing:
One night she'll sleep for 5 hours, the next for 9. I never know what to expect. It's always a gamble: do I stay awake to work after she's gone to bed and risk only 4 hours of sleep? I usually end up just zonking out at the same time as her. Especially since I am currently ALMOST caught up with all my christmas orders. Everything I have left can be hand-delivered, so I'm not rushing against time and the post office. It's nice to take it slow for once.
I've also been working on a personal embroidery project, and plan to do a few more in the immediate future. I checked out The Embroidery Companion from the library, and it is amazing. Usually I will check out craft books, flip through them, think the projects are nice, want to attempt to make them, but never do. But I feel like almost every project in this book is just calling out to me. I can't resist. I like it so much that when I realized I can't renew the book any more since someone else requested it, I decided to buy it. I suppose since it's a reference book there's a loophole in my "YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO BUY NOVELS ANY MORE" rule (we have too many books!). I also usually look at craft projects with a business woman's eye: How can I alter this idea into something that I can make and sell? This time, I'm not doing that! I'm embroidering for the simple joy of embroidering, and I'm loving it.
Oh, Virginia must be hungry. See you later!
