I LOVE Mondays...

...well I love Mondays when I've the day off work! I finished my Christmas ornament for the EMS exchange. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I'd post a picture but it's a surprise...shh...so I can't! I hope my pal likes what I made for her!

I am working on a pretty design I was going to make into a biscornu. I started stitching and when I closed the square...it wasn't square! I recounted and my counts are perfect; it's the fabric that's off. What's up with that? This is MCG Textiles 28 count evenweave. Boo...one side is 2 3/8 and the other 2 1/8 inches. I'm not sure if I'll biscornu this or not as I don't want to do all the work and have it look terrible.
Was listening to my ipod and stitching & thought I'd better break and update my blog. Work wasn't too bad this weekend. I'm scheduled to work next weekend AGAIN though. Grr! I'll have to start writing my own schedules if it keeps up; I do not want to work every weekend- duh!
I signed up for the EMS Christmas card exchange. Whee! I love exchanges. I'm trying to decide if I want to join the scissor fob & needlecase exchange. I can make a fob but I've never made a needlecase; so will have to think about it.
Today, Jessie and I were driving in town and I started giggling. Jess asked what's so funny? I said I had this insane urge to pull into the tattoo parlor and just get a tattoo. It was so sudden and strong, this urge...that it made me laugh. Isn't that weird? BTW, I didn't get a tattoo.

Yes! but if you did, what would the tattoo been a picture of?

O...a Scottish thistle...one of these days perhaps the impulse will become irresistible.
