Friday March 11, 2016

Friday is one of my schedule blog days so here I am.  I am a little fried brain was-though I did manage to get something like a normal amount of sleep 2 nights in a row.  I just have been going all day and my creative brain is already trying to focus on the next thing on the list.

It's been a rainy week here in DFW which means that when you have a broken dryer, even though theres an outside clothes line, trips need to be made to the laundromat.  So, I've been working that in amongst the other things that need to get done.

And here's a picture of one of my cats.  He wanted to throw his two cents in on the labels I was working on earlier.  I have a new base and needed to work up a fiber specific label instead of using my yarn labels.

And, It's now 3 weeks until DFW Fiber Fest.  Must remember to breathe.

This weekend I am taking my kids to Six Flags and prepping prepping prepping.  Have a good weekend gang!

Workin' It Wednesday-March 9, 2016

This week I am working on the socks that I am making for Ray.  My goal this week is to make it to the toes at least before next weeks workin' it post.  I am not having trouble with them, just having a hard time finding the time to knit.  

But!  I am trying something new.  I have a list of things that I'd like to accomplish daily, and under the health category I have 'knit'.  So Monday I knit, yesterday I did some crochet, and today is knit night, so I will be working on these puppies tonight.

Things are ramping up prep wise for the April shows here at the house and I am still getting used to the new schedule change at Major Airline.  I don't really have a problem staying up as late as I need to, its just the waking up the next morning that I am struggling with.  My body wakes me up at 8 and then my brain keeps me awake.  Which means that I am having a hard time not wearing my grumpy pants.  I find myself being snappish and short and then having to take a step back and say whoa!  I've got the same pants to get glad in!  I'm practicing the art of apology because I don't realize that I am being overboard until it's already happened.  Like I woke Ray up to fight with him the other night about CAT FOOD!  Hello!  I need to figure out how to get enough sleep.

It's Business Time-Monday March 7, 2016

So.  I have decided to put myself on a schedule for blogging so that maybe I will blog more than once a month.   I am planning to blog at least 3 times a week.

This week I've been making lists and checking them twice.  I am now lest than a month until DFW Fiber Fest and in order to make sure I get everything accomplished, that means good planning.  So, I need to make a list and check it twice and thrice and try to actually sleep, but I'm having  hard time with that.

And my goal this week is to list something everyday-So that means that Luck O The Irish is up at Brazen Stitchery

Both DFW Fiber Fest and Yellow Rose Fiber Fiesta are hosting a stitch marker swap, so I've been playing around with getting Ms Sheepy on to shrinky dink to then turn her into stitch markers.   I am planning on also adding beads to the marker and having the event on one side so that attendees at both shows get unique stitch markers.

And here's the periscope where I talk about it all, if you want to see me being under slept.  Yay new schedule!
