Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Things at work haven't slowed down just yet. There's been other work drama involving two-faced people, but I won't get into that further. Also, my apartment is a disaster...I wish we could move when our lease is up in September, but there's no way we can come up with 3k for fees/security to move into a new place by then. Who's got a fee free apartment for us to rent? Anyone? Bueller? It was worth a shot.
I'm physically and emotionally drained.
Anyhoo...I've been working on finishing my June charity project and swap while riding back and forth on the subway. They're all in the mail!
June's charity is a firehouse in SC that gives out firebears to children who have lost their homes due to a fire. These bears were fun to make. I wish I'd had more time to make more. The pattern can be found at freepatterns.com under the toy section.
I also worked up 3 six inch squares for Lesa'a daughter's blanket. I found the pattern on Ravelry, but can't find the link. Why didn't I put it in my que? *headdesk* As soon as I find the link, I'll put it up.
Ooh, ooh before I forget, check out my freecycle score! A lady was giving away a really old sewing machine that she barely used. Its the Singer Fashion Mate 237. She said it works great and is really sturdy. This is a great way for me to get my feet wet with sewing without making a big financial committment. I've ordered the manual from Singer and am patiently waiting (stalking the mailman) for it to arrive. I heart freecycle.
My Swap Swap Girls package also went out in the mail today. I am so excited to show you what I made! One of the patterns I found is a real gem and will be on my Christmas to-do list for sure.
Come hell or high water, I am not working OT this weekend, so this weekend is going to be totally devoted to the CRW. Hopefully I'll get a bit closer to the finish line. I like the idea Jen had for a slideshow of my progress. Once its all done, I'm going to see if I can figure that one out.
Hope you peeps are having a good week!
