I finished Sweetheart Fence! It came out pretty cute! And only one week after Valentine's Day. It's stitched on PTP 28 ct. Crystal Whimsey Cashel linen.
I also realized I never put Snow Fence in my Webshots, so I scanned it, too. I finished it in early October of last year, right after we moved. This one is on PTP 28 ct. Crystal Dwarf Cashel linen. I like PTP's sparkly Cashels.
I finished another row on QS Dragonfly. I hate it when I start a row and there's so much confetti. But towards the end, there is usually some bigger blobs of color. I'm almost to the halfway point! I'm going to finish this one before the end of the year.
This weekend is a Maidens SAL on the HAED BB. Angels, mermaids, and fairies don't count. Otherwise I'd pull out Angel Of Capricorn. But I'm going to work on Dorothy And Toto instead. My goal for this one is 200 stitches this year. I think I can get there this weekend. I want to work a little on every project I've got started this year.
Our tax money is completely gone now. I've got my new computer! It's wonderful, but I can help feeling I've betrayed my old one. There's nothing major wrong with it. But we've still used it a little. My new one's cool. I've had to get used to it though. It's set up differently.
I also got my glasses, and a spare pair! It's so cool to be able to see again. I've had to get used to them, too. It's been almost a year since I gave up on my old ones. At first everything was all wavy. Then I had to get used to them sitting on my nose all the time. My eyes hurt when I take them off and forget to put them back on. My eyes don't like adjusting back to not seeing. I can't believe how much better I can see.
And we finally got a bookshelf for all the DVDs. The only one we could find that held more that 100, held 500. I knew we probably had at least 200, so we bought the 500 one. I didn't think we'd fill it . But we came pretty close, when you add in the video games. There are 24 cubes, and 7 1/2 on the top are filled with the "grown-up" movies. The eight on the bottom are filled with the boys' movies. And there's a different box for the games for each system. And some are filled with CD cases. There was only one empty block, so I put Tobi's last school picture in there. I put several others on the shelves that weren't completely full.
Some of Jymi's friends from work are going midnight bowling tonight. So the boys are spending the night at Grandma's. We went there after school. And when I got home, Jymi had to go to work. So I've got a few hours to myself, without anyone asking for anything! I'm gonna get what I need for Dorothy And Toto, and then have dinner. Then I'm going to work out without thinking about time. And then when I get home. I'm gonna shower and use all the hot water.
I'm not sure if I'll bowl, if we go. I didn't get the impression Jymi really wanted to go bowling. We'll both bowl on the Wii, but we both suck in real life. The last time I went bowling, I was in 5th grade. I got a 38. I think I can get away with just watching though. I don't think the other guys will let Jymi get away with that. Get a few beers in him and he won't care if he sucks. But I can't drink with my medication, so I'll still be self conscious. I guess we'll see how it goes.
