I didn’t have my church job this morning, since it’s their monthly “praise” Sunday. I still get paid the same, so it’s nice for me. 🙂 I spent a good part of the morning doing grades and playing on Facebook. And cooking a little for the cross-stitch GTG at my house in the afternoon. I made roasted potato wedges, using a recipe from Pioneer Woman’s site, but it was pretty much what I’d done before. They’re not complicated. 🙂
I promised you a picture of the stitching I’ve been working on this week. Last weekend my wedding sampler looked pretty much like this:
And now it looks like this:
That’s a good portion of a “K”. In the middle is a heart, which is already done:
And on the other side will go an “R” in similar style and the same color. Underneath, I’ll put our names and wedding date. I’d like to get it finished by June 13, our 5th anniversary (I started it last year on our anniversary), but we’ll see. Graduate school starts for me May 4, and school doesn’t get out until June 5, so for a good portion of that time I’ll be “double-dipping” my time. Not that I don’t already. Sigh. I figure, we’re married, we still love each other, and a sampler doesn’t have to be there to prove it. But it will be nice.
It will also be the first major project I’ve finished in nearly two years. I want to stitch more than I do, obviously. I can’t read the combined libraries of Hennepin County, stitch everything I want to, cook like a gourmet chef, and start a quilting business as well as work full time at one job and part-time at two others. Sigh. I have great dreams…but they don’t come to fruition. I can’t blame it all on my jobs though; I did spend a good portion of my spring break on Facebook. Looks like I need to be more self-motivated.
Back to school tomorrow. And it rained all day today, after being gorgeous last week. Need I say more? (Although it was nice for stitching.)
Five weeks to go!
