I made it! (the purse) But there's a small hitch. I didn't like the handles for it on the pattern after I had cut it out and all, so I am changing that part of it. It's gonna have to wait til next weekend, cause I need the 6 or so bucks it'll cost for the handles that I want. I was thinking it would look cute with those "bamboo" handles. This means I am going to have to tear out some of what I have already done and re-figure how to get those handles on securely. Nothing more embarrassing than walking down the street with a really cute set of handles and no purse! Ya know what I mean?
Then I started another project. I found a bag with some yarn and a mile a minute afghan pattern book in it, in my truck. You know I am always losing things, and I never know where I will find them. When I was doing my laundry this morning, I decided to clean out the truck while I was waiting for stuff to dry and there was this bag. So, I looked through the book and found one I liked and started it. I have no clue if I have enough yarn for this pattern, but I was thinking I could do all the bases of the strips and then do a second color of yarn for the outside borders of each strip. That seems to be a workable thing to do. The yarn I started with is a light beige with flecks of brown, gray and black in it, so I could go with any of those colors for the borders. Just one more thing to have to do while I am waiting for someone or something. I have lots of fidgety little things set up to do while I wait. (I'm not a still or silent waiter)
I just gave my little dog a bath. You'd think I was pulling her hair out bunch by bunch the way she carries on when I bathe her. And it's not like she doesn't like water. Whenever we go to the lake, I open the door to the truck to let them out and they (little and big dog) make a bee line for the water. Then I don't see them for hours. Usually someone had to go down and get her and make her come up to the cabin for a rest.
I worked out on my Wii for another half an hour this morning after I got back from doing my laundry. Hopefully I can make myself get up early enough in the morning to do some more damage on it before I have to get ready for work. I was thinking about my schedule and working out every day, (except one day) and the only way I can do that at a consistant time every day is to do it at night. Maybe I would sleep better too. I don't know...any suggestions?
Tomorrow is my late day at work. So I will go ahead and do the workout in the morning. That's the only thing I worry about is that I will be too tired to do any kind of excercise after work.
That's it for now. Have a wonderful.....
