I was talking with my new manager the other day and she is just as excited as I am to not be 'shared' any longer. That was nice to hear. I am working like a crazy woman - first half of the week has been devoted to the transition, change over happens at lunch on Wednesdays and then the rest of the week is spent on my new role. 64 days... that's all the longer I have to do this, at most.
I've not had a lot of time to craft, which makes me rather sad. I made time, finally, this week and completed a headband. Originally I was going to do a huge blanket for Hobbit's teacher. I realized two things - I didn't like my two combined color palettes put together and I don't have enough time to finish it. I opted to change my game plan up and make her teacher a collection of headbands.
The other day though, I had to make something. I get crabby when I can't craft - so I repurposed a skirt that I've had for 12 years or more that finally gave up the ghost. I cut it up and turned it into a project bag, keeping my most favorite part of the skirt. It was a new to me pattern but I have to say, I absolutely love it!
|I couldn't just toss this skirt out - I love the Eeyore so much, I just had to find a way to keep it.|
I want to start a lace hat tonight or tomorrow. It's imperative that I get it done, as it's a gift for someone in my family. Fingers crossed, I'll be able to do it during lunch. That will be satisfying - knitting a simple lace hat and having a fully completed project.
On Sunday, I'm excited to be going out to visit a new outlet shopping center that opened today. It has a ton of cool stores and my sweet friend and I are going to have fun wandering around. It's going to be a most of the day event so I tried to get Pokey to come with me but he totally doesn't want to deal with the crowds of people which he is envisioning - mostly thanks to the news coverage for opening day today. I can't blame him. I know he gets anxious around crowds and he despises shopping... but still, I really wanted him to come too. I don't know why, other than I haven't had a lot of time to hang out with my family these past few weeks.
Oh well, I get him all to myself the week leading up to Thanksgiving since Hobbit is going up to Virginia with my folks. I'm sure we'll reconnect then... if not sooner.
Here's to shorter days, longer nights, family time, and stolen moments. I hope y'all have had a glorious week that brings you joy and a weekend full of things that will bring you peace.
