Can summer slow down a bit please? I'm having a hard enough time trying to hold on to my stitching mojo as it is without the month's vanishing on me! Okay for my WIPockalypse, I just have the commission Wedding piece to show: It's on 28 count antique white evenweave (my first time doing this small of a count) and it's over 2 which makes it even more fun. That's how much of the pattern I have done, marked off with orange highlighter. *grins* as to what the pattern's on, that's an old "magnetic poetry board" which stands up really nicely and I don't have to worry about felines laying on the pattern, thus forcing me to either move them or put the stitching up for a while. And now my traveling TUSAL jar: As you can see, not much, but that's all the wedding pattern there. Hopefully, I'll get the days to slow down, but I am really looking forward to this weekend when my only plan is going to a Circle of rhiannon Hafla down by Cincy to meet up with my dancing friends. *rolls eyes* My boss apparently took my announcement that I'm expecting to mean that I'm not dancing anymore so she's been scheduling me late on Thursdays. Frankly, the only class I was going to drop was the Intermediate Choreography since I wouldn't be able to perform with any of the ladies until after the baby's born, but working as late as I am on Thursdays means I'm missing my Beginner Technique class. Major Bummer.

Myself, my cats, and my hubby survived that horrible storm that ripped through our state over the weekend. It was nice 'cause at the begining of the rain/windstorm, all of us were out on our newly screened in second-story porch, just enjoying the cool weather and the rain. Our power flickered a bit but didn't go out. The 'Net went out on Friday, and the power dimmed a few times last night, but never went out. Babycakes is doing fine and in three weeks, I find out if it's pink bubblegum cigars or blue that my hubby gets to pass out.
