Busy Weekend (pictures! yay!)
Yesterday we ran all over J-ville just doing stuff. It was lots of fun but definitely taxing. Especially physically. Justin made the silly mistake of leaving me alone in the craft section of Wal-Mart! Although I've expressed my distaste for their knitting section, well the rest of it is decent. They've got plenty of cute and cheap fabric. Not that I would go there to make anything important or spectacular. But it's got a decent selection, I found some nice things there for some SP surprises and a Maternity top or two. Though I'm going to have fun finding a way to fit that to my body as I'm a bit top heavy. :P
You'll have to forgive all the cruddy pictures. I screwed up my digital camera's zoom function so I used my webcam and that really doesn't seem much better.
Picked up a bunch of beads and things too. I fixed my little cell phone thing (that has Kyo and Gara? on it) because it finally broke the other day. Then I made one for Jamie. She's always talking about how she wants a cute one and I found the perfect little charms for the end of it. A pink and green flip flop and a little tag that says Friends Forever. YAY! I'll send it with her pedi socks, of course that's not til October so, I'll have to try to be patient. You probably can't see it very well. *sigh*
And of course I picked up some yarn. :D Just some Cascade, I finally decided I'd use my extra bit of money to buy some for a Tubey. That probably won't be something I'll get around to for awhile, but the yarn is gorgeous and it makes me happy. Also grabbed some white Cascade to dye for Jamie's socks. It looks quite nice next to my Tubey yarns too. The green will be my main color with the Quattro and the pink for striping. I've also got some spare of a coral color that I used for my Gwen-a-be hat that I'll probably use too.
Now, let's see. The million and one things I plan on doing today. I'm going to stop by Hancock and pick up that fabric that matches my socks, gonna get my hair cut (I'll post a pic), I plan on sewing when Kyran goes down for his nap in an hour, gotta get some laundry done (not that I can wear most of mine), do the dishes, and vaccum. The vaccuming needs to be done before I start working with my patterns because I use the living room for to cut and pin them. I know it's not the best idea ever, but no other area in my house seems to have enough space. It's more comfortable on me too. Justin wants me to go by the doctor's to see if they can do anything for me. I keep telling him I'll wait until the 23rd because it's a waste of time. My OB will probably just say to take some tylenol, or a relaxing bath (as if), try a heating pad and ice...etc. Things I've tried that don't help. That's the way it is though.
See the odd tool in the background? Ah swipes... how I love thee! Let me count the ways.... My hubby tossed those to me when I asked for needlenose pliers. I didn't complain because I couldn't really get up off of the couch and get what I had intended to use. Even though I knew where it was. So I just did my best with the swipes. They worked WONDERS! You have no idea. lol Oh, again, sorry for the awful picture, I made stitch markers. Guess it's really a good thing that you can't see them that well since they are for my SP (I also intend to make some for myself). Got the idea looking at all the ones for sale on the special offers sites. They've got some cute things but I felt I could do the same thing and make it more special for her. Trust me, they are really cute.
