A Friday Night Quickie

This week I…

Dumbledore

Went to see Harry Potter with my friend, Sherri. Loved it.

Simple Things 081509

Got to meet up with some stitching buddies on Thursday to stitch. I brought Simple Things and filled in some of those Curry flowers. I always seem to talk more than stitch when I’m with them. But, I love it. I wish I could go every Thursday.

Cappuccino

Realized that in order to stitch the little Monogram Pincusion that’s in the same Loose Feathers as Simple Things I needed a skein of Weeks Cappuccino. So, I took advantage of having an LNS right around the corner from work and went there on my lunch break. Of course, one cannot buy a skein of thread only. And they had precut fabric for the BBD stockings. I couldn’t resist picking up a few.

SSB Friday Night Stitching

Planted myself in front of the tv Friday night while Eric was at a photography gig and put that skein of Cappuccino to work. I started the Monogram Pincusion.

Monogram Pincusion

And finished it. And although it was a supah tight fit, I got that M in there! I plan to put this on my pincushion base as soon as possible (like maybe next week when I take a couple days off work for my birthday).

Essie After Sex

Oh, and I got my nails done and started a new book.

And somehow, I managed to fit in work, the gym, and school. Imagine that.

Now I’ve got to run get ready for dinner at Eric’s parents’ tonight. We’re celebrating my birthday early.

I am grateful for taking a big step.

  1. Sounds like a great week! Happy early birthday…hope you have fun tonight. So what is the OPI color of the week? It’s pretty! I’ve been depriving myself of manicures and pedicures to save a little $$ but I am so treating myself in a couple of weeks before vacation. Can’t wait!

  7. Sounds like a great week! Happy, happy birthday early. I just saw Harry Potter with the kids yesterday and loved it (although a bit long) and saw Julie/Julie with the DD. Great start on Simple Things (I know how getting together with the girls doesn’t seem to produce a lot of stitching – but still a lot of fun) and wanted to tell you that because of your Riddle I had to buy it today. Love your OPI colors – wish I still did mine in colors, but I’ve gone with the french manicures for a while (but I’ve made note of your lucious colors!!

  23. This sounds like a wonderful week full of good and pleasant things.
    When I’m together with my stitching friends we also talk a lot and stitch only little but we don’t meet very often so there’s always a lot of show and tell and catching up.
    A LNS just around the corner – how useful to fill your lunch breaks in a very pleasant way, lol. The fabrics you bought look so lovely. Of course, one can’t buy just a skein of thread, lol.

    Happy Birthday, Michelle!

  25. I always love the pictures of your manicures and pedicures. I haven’t had a mani since my wedding day and I’ve never had a pedi, ever. I’m glad that you pamper yourself; it’s important to give yourself some attention and focus. 🙂
