I can't believe it! I did it! I doubled my daily goal and actually accomplished it BEFORE 10 pm last night. PHEW! (and on the tail end of a migraine)
Each ribbon of color requires 55 stitches to complete and there are 28 ribbons on each row. I've still got a long way to go to finish this up by the end of November, but I think I can do it if I continue with completing at least 1000 stitches a day.
Last night was sort of a fluke, at least for having some extra stitching time. There was a group of young adults here for dinner and games -- A was one of the people in charge. They had a grand time and the laughter was contagious throughout the evening. There wasn't much left in the way of food, although they didn't make it to the popcorn or through the pan of brownies. I think the Peanut Butter game finished off anyone seeking additional sustenance for the evening!
Not much in the way of any additional crafting done yesterday, except I did get my table cleared and most everything went back in it's place -- Since the YA's were going to be using the family room and patio area for the evening.
I did field a few emails and calls about work, which means there may be some additional money coming in for my trip to AZ in January. And to boot, it looks like I'll have a roomie for the Advanced Training....now which one of us gives up our reservation? My reservation for the Renewal Training is now definitely on since the room is filled and hopefully, we'll be able to pull off a surprise for the gang!
Ok, so back to work. Need to do a little bit of creative stuff to get the card swap stuff ready for next week and have a new presentation put together, studied and all the details worked out BEFORE next Wednesday's before school meeting with the teachers. Only have 15 minutes -- ummm, this could be interesting! Oh, and two phone calls to hotels to confirm the last changes on the BEO's.
NEWS UPDATES: T's eye surgery went very well. The glaucoma pressure has dropped significantly with the Alphagan. His only complaint is still light sensitivity and some throbbing. He'll address that tomorrow at his appointment (1 week check-up)
C (hubby to dd#2) is leaving tomorrow to begin his 15 month stint in Iraq. Our prayers and more go with him and for our dd and unborn child. This is his first "real" deployment and although he did basic and specialty training after they were married, this will truly be a test for them. God Speed and keep him and his unit safe.
Thanks for dropping by....here's wishing you a day full of recognizing your own GREATNESS and sharing with others!
