A new week and some stitching


It's been a long couple of weeks.  I have training coming up later this week that I have to go to Charlotte for for 2 days.  I don't know if I am looknig forward to it, or dreading it.

You see, my entire job depends on this training.  I have gotten one certification already.  This one, will be directly linked to my new title.  Which, if I pass, I will share more info on later. 

I really don't want to jinx it.

Today and tomorrow are kinda sad days.

My favorite Zumba/Hip Hop instructor is leaving.  We've been doing classes with her since November of last year.  So, just about 10 months.  That's a long time to do workout classes with someone.  We have had subs - and none of them have been as good as Tassie - or as energetic or as high-impact.  *sigh*. 

Maybe change is good.  My weight has been at a standstill for about 3 weeks now.  The 6lbs I lost a few weeks ago was water weight.  And, I know a lof of that is my own fault.

Honestly, I really haven't cared lately.  Seriously.  Zippo caring here.

Now, on the other hand.....there was another reason I started this blog.  That was to keep track of my sewing/knitting.

Here are a few shots of my current projects:

The first is a baby blanket I am doing for a dear friend of mine here at work that has a baby due in January.   I will also be making her a bonnet and a pair of mary-jane booties.

This one is a scarf that I am doing for my co-worker/workout buddy who I have been sweating with for the past 27 weeks.  This will be her birthday present.  Her birthday is December 1st.

I do have another one that I am going to be starting on this week. 

At the end of October, I will be going to the SAFF - Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair in Asheville, NC with my daughter.
