The picture that was supposed to happen last night. This is the top third of Earth Goddess. It is moving along pretty quickly, as I suspected it would. Although it isn't going by that fast in the respect that I haven't got as much time to work on it. If I wasn't working, I'd probably be done with this portion. That's fine with me, I'd rather have the income rather than the cross stitch progress.

Work has been good, except the foot pain at the end of the day I mentioned the other day. I bought some inserts for my shoes. I can't tell if they hindered or helped. My feet were fine for a longer period of time, but now that the shoes are off, they hurt worse! No telling. I am just going to have to keep popping the aspirin until something works itself out in my shoes.

I decided last night that I would try really hard to put money aside for my daughter's car purchase. I mean, I have lived on much less than I have coming in right now. Aside from the cost of gas that is. So, I will continue to live like I was on unemployment benefits and put the rest aside. Than she can get her car faster, I can get some sleep sooner and she can pay me back. ( least that is what it says in my book!) She is giving me cash every week to stash for her, hidden in a deep dark secret place. So I will just stash what I can in a separate envelope until the day we have put aside enough to get the car, registration and insurance. Hopefully , I can shear off a months worth of saving on her part.

Work is working. Yes, I love it! It is busy still, there's plenty of variety, and I get a kick out of helping people fill their needs for hardware things. I am Ms MacGyvwer after all. to get on to something...even if it's wrong. Good night all!

Earth Goddess is coming along nicely. I have this in my to do pile and the more I look at it the higher up in the pile it seems to move.

It's very pretty! I love the colors!
If I were not trying to reduce the numbers of WIPs I have, I'd be tempted to start her right now!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog & your kind comments.
Love the quilt you made in Dylan's honor - your niece is a very lucky mommy-to-be receiving a wonderful gift like this.
The colors of Earth Goddess are so lovely. What a beautiful finish she will make.
