What a day!! I feel so accomplished, and once I finish this post, I'll get back to catching up!
After spending a good portion of yesterday trying to find a photo wallet, I can now say I have a graduation gift ready for a friend's daughter. She graciously sent a check to Ben last year, so thought I would send something to her daughter this year. I saw a Pinterest post about folding money, sliding it into pages of a photo wallet, and saying something about giving her pictures of famous people for her graduation. NO ONE carries photos anymore, so those wallets are few and far between!!! I spent half the day looking for one yesterday, visiting several stores until finally my husband and I found one late last night. Today was my mission to get it ready, fill it with folded dollar bills, and finding quotes to print and fill in the rest of the sleeves. I actually had fun doing it, but it sure was time consuming!! I like giving unique gifts...thank you pinterest!! LOL
I helped out a friend by taking a "strength finders" test today, to discover what my "gifts" are. I found the results interesting!! One of my top five strengths is achiever. Is ANYONE surprised by that? Gillie??? Mouse??? Astrid??? LOL!! And guess what, ladies....it's a STRENGTH!! I will no longer hang my head in shame when I have accomplished goals when others haven't. I can't help myself, it's who I am! Another is empathy...so while I'm secretly celebrating my accomplishments, I'll be saying how sorry I am that you feel angry with me...I can't help myself doing that either...*grin*
And on that note...I'll tell you my other accomplishment today...I got caught up on Marquoir Francoise! You can find information and charts on this site. Hopefully the next section won't come out too soon, as I am still behind in the Maryse SAL. Here is part 4 ...
I caught up on the Mystery SAL from Au point de croix this past week also. You can find information on this SAL here.
I finally got caught up on my Christmas stitching. I finished of 6 Mill Hill ornaments pictured here...
I actually had fun stitching these up, and have even finished off my June goals too, and have decided to stitch ornaments at the beginning of the month instead of waiting until the end...too much pressure for me!! Here are all 12 of them in the same picture....I like that they are different types. I'm going to search around and see if I can't find something even a little more different for the next ones.
And that, as they say, is that!! The boys are off to a baseball game tonight, so I have the house to myself, yippee!! Stitching without interruption sounds like a good plan for this Friday night. And on that note, I'll leave you to enjoy your day. Take care!
