Update on the short term goals that were set a few days ago: yellow/gray/red quilt top finished. it only took a short 5 hours. I am going to try to get some pictures of this beast up when a natural light source presents itself. I could take it outside but I don't want to put myself out there like that, are you freaking kidding?! Now that it is finished, it's pretty clear that my color-putting-together-skills are still lacking and I went a little too yellow crazy. I wanted it to be more gray....who cares, I will post it and that will be that. Next on the quilt front is sashing up the bug quilt and getting that finished. That one is also a beast and what started as a crib size has turned into a full at least.
I am also working on a button collection, like every good woman should. Here she is:
Impressive, no? The picture is the worst, I know that part but look at those buttons! there has to be at least a dozen up in there! Good for me. I also wanted to get a picture of the bell I found thrifting a few days ago. The camera crapped out and it only squeezed out this picture before it collapsed again but let me tell you, this bell in all of its 50 cent glory will be pictured one day. It has gaudy flowers all over it and says "i like you" on top. What is not to like about that?
The other goal, renewing the license, not finished. The Gentleman of the House has been getting a lot of calls and had the car quite a lot this week. Either that or I was working. Maybe I just went home and took a nap. Who can be sure?
Work is still the worst and I am pretty sure I may have to headbutt someone. That's all there is to that.
