Rough week

Well, I'd like to show a ton of stitch work, but there just isn't that much to show. I.T. isn't always a 9 to 5 job and this week was one of those prime examples of the crappy hours I'm sometimes required to keep (at salary, no less). Needless to say, I did manage a chunk of work on Tartan B simply because I could do it during those late work nights while systems were doing their thing and I couldn't do anything but watch them.

I've also reached that critical point with this I continue on or do I restart it? I've got the plan to turn this into a pillow eventually and I just don't think that this thin material will work well in pillow capacity. I could finish this one and do something else with it and do another one for a pillow, but if I had a dime for every single time I said I'd "redo" a project for one reason or another and never did, well I wouldn't be in debt.

Pea suffered though and I only managed two days worth of work on her, Friday:

And Sunday:

Saturday was out because it was our office Christmas party. A fortune spent on a dress that I was melted and poured into, but it was one that I couldn't have worn before, so why not? And an entire day of primping just for three hours of socializing with people I see every single day, but hey, that's what god made alcohol for (although it still wasn't enough to get me up to sing karaoke...although I may have sung along rather loudly once or twice). In the end, I can honestly say I had a good time and that's all that's important. It's the only time of year that I do get out, so I might as well enjoy myself, right? Well, enjoy myself I did!

Hopefully this will be a better stitch week. I need one or two if I'm going to finish Pea before the end of the year and one or two is just about all I have left!

Sorry to hear about the rough week, and I hope the next few are better for you. With Tartan B, could you back it with fusible interface or something to make it thick enough for a pillow? I often do that anyway to make sure no stuffing peeks out. Good luck with the difficult decision of deciding to restart or not. I always leave those until it's ridiculously too late.

Glad to hear you had fun at the party! I know how you feel about work I work at a theme park and have to work most holidays and my schedule is never the same. Pea is looking great!

I'm so happy to hear that you had fun at your office party. Pea is looking great. I know you will get her done.
