Sneak Peek

Sorry for disappearing all week! I was going along strong on Crabby when I got a little cross stitch obsession aversion therapy in the form of a two-evening headache. That really put me off my form. The week at work was l o n g for some reason. Friday couldn't get here soon enough. Then, I had a brilliant design idea so I've been working hard on that, perfecting and now stitching. This will be shared in the form of a freebie, possibly next Friday. Stay tuned in for that! Here is a little sneak peek...



Sadly, the weekend hasn't been much better. I got all geared up to finish the housework early yesterday morning so I could have the rest of the weekend free to design and stitch and play with stash. I was doing laundry and blog reading when the sewer backed up into the bathtub and toilets! You should have seen Taco-cat's eyes when big bubbles erupted from the toilet; and her tail bushed! The back bathroom toilet overflowed and the main baths' nearly did. Good Lord, what a mess! Everything was at a standstill until the plumber could come and snake out the main line. Why does this kind of thing always happen of a Saturday, when it costs twice as much? We are back in business though...after a thorough bleaching!

Finally, I feel like stitching again. Just in time to go back to work. Blah!

I like to wish a very happy birthday to my dear friend, Angela! Hey, you! Where's the cake?

I hope to get another Crabby update in for you soon. In the meantime, be sure to check the other participants' blogs for their updates. The links are in my sidebar. They all look really awesome! Way to go girls!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Sharon, your cross stitches look so nice. All straight and no twisting. Beautiful job! I can't wait to see more of your progress on Crabby.

I hate it when those headaches last for days. I just experienced that a week or so ago.

Melissa said...

I can't wait to see your Crabby update. I'm sorry you had a rough week and weekend. Hopefully this next week will be much better.

Annie said...

January seems to have its challenges for lots of us. I cringe when I hear 'headaches'. I'm just getting over bronchitis myself... seriously interrupting my stitching. Hopefully this week will be better.

I hope this week goes better for you and fast for us, so we can see that design.

Hope you are having a better week and we can see your Crabby update.

Ick. That's exactly what happened to us (septic-wise) this summer. Our lines are still a mess, but as they are interconnected with the other houses in our row, we don't really know what to do other than try to time our water consumption for off-hours (middle of the night laundries, etc.).

Jean said...

Gross! I HATE plumbing problems - they seem so easy to fix when the plumber is doing them!! I swear they have a Saturday conspiracy (or maybe we just notice the times it happens on Saturday's because of the bill. The cat description was a riot! It's crazy when the tail buses out! Yikes!

You are due for a wonderful weekend- I hope this one is it!

Glenna said...

You need one more panel on "Crabby": a toilet with the caption "sewage." It's happened to us too!

Lillie said...

Hoped you are feeling much better and looking forward to an update on Crabby :)

Im curious now lol.

I too have had a lot of bad heads just lately and the computer does seem to instigate them but I think the cold is responsible too as I seem to "hunch up" against it and I think that causes the muscles in my neck to tighten. I hope yours are a lot better now.
