Daffy's Stitchy Friends

I'm a lazy blogger

Will you be my Valentine anyway?

See more silly kitties at Lolcats and funny doggies at Loldogs.


It's that time again! Here is my TU SAL for the new moon. And it's on time, no less! I've been working on a couple of different projects lately so my threads are quite the variety on top!



All the way from Madrid, Spain, here is what Doris sent when I won her blogoversary giveaway. Look at the plethora of stitchy goodies! I'm just over the moon! Thank you Doris and happy blogoversary!

Mini-rant:
I wish blogger would fix this glitch and give me
the damn line break between paragraphs.

Now, why have I been a lazy blogger? Maybe a lack of stitchy pictures to share? I'm working on exchange stitching and I always pout when I can't share photos. I haven't been able to get a start on my February Snapper either, which is bugging me. To no end.
*****

In other news, I have received a seriously good promotion at work. I've started training last week. The new position has me getting up a hour and a half earlier (4am) than I am used to (5:30am) so that is a bit of an adjustment. It's really hard going to bed earlier! I am thinking I will really like my new job once I know what I am doing. Feeling rather awkward at the moment! Things will settle down around here soon and I'll be right back to my chatty, bloggy self in no time!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Congrats on the promotion Sharon! That sounds great...except the getting earlier part. Urgh...I'm the worst morning person ever! lol

I'm gift stitching and can't share too much either...it's such a drag with blogging.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Congrats on the win Sharon! I know what you mean about the paragraph thing and blogger! PAIN!! The kitties are cute! I too have been working on some exchange pieces so no pictures of that.I know you enjoy working on exchanges but hopefully you can do some of your own stitching soo.

And yes I will be your Valentine!!LOL I too just have been lacking in blogging. I'm stitching just not taking photos so I tend not to blog with-out pics. I will make it a point to blog this week!!

Hugs and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!

Congrats on the promotion!
Have fun getting up earlier LOL!

Jan said...

Yay for the new promotion. I hope you will like it.

Happy V-Day!

Julie M said...

Congrats on the promotion but a big yuck on having to get up at that time of the morning!! Although I'm not sure what difference it would make as I am usually awake by then anyway. I guess it's the knowing I would HAVE to get up then that would stink.

Enjoy the new job and i hope it came with seriously more money!

Myra said...

Congratulation on the promotion and the blog win. Lots of neat stuff there to keep you busy.

mollycaff said...

Congratulations on the promotion, but 4.30am!!! I can't imagine getting up at that time.

Elaine said...

Congratulations on your promotion Sharon! Great new bundle of stash to enjoy.

Dee said...

Congrats on the promotion! What will you be doing?

You can make your own line break. In the edit html mode on a posting place a
where you want the break and it shall be done. Each
is one line. You can do multiples if you want a bigger break.

Hope this helps.

Robin said...

Congrats on the new job! You will be fine and not feeling awkward in no time. I remember when I changed jobs thinking what did I do! I knew nothing of the new job and longed for the comfort of the old job. The change is hours takes some getting used too. Good luck.

corinna said...

i have to wake early for work and i find it hard to go to bed early too

Christine said...

Great news on the promotion even if it does mean getting up half an hour before you went to bed
(Oh I do love it when I can sneak in a Python reference)
Those "can't show this stitching yet" situations are really frustrating

Siobhan said...

Woohoo!! Congratulations on the job! I hope you settle in quickly and start feeling 'normal' soon. I hate that adjustment period. Can't wait to see your stitchy pics, but understand the wait. :D

Meari said...

Congrats on your promotion, the blog giveaway.

You can put your own paragraph code in, just use < br > for line break. Or, < p > and < /p > at the beginning and end of a paragraph. (Take out the spaces).

Lynn said...

Congratulations on your promotion! I never seem to get to bed earlier. My alarm goes off shortly after 4:30 am and I don't usually crawl out until about 5. The problem is that I'm a late night person. I feel like my relaxation time is cut short when I have to get to bed earlier.

Yoyo said...

I guess the Mr. Linky thing works, very cool. Wow your Totally Useless Container is beautiful, you must have been doing some stitching. What a haul you made from the blogversary party, lots of really nice goodies.
