Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Wow - sorry you got sick! Hope you're better now! And I can't wait to hear what you think of the Tilli Thomas!

Thursday, May 10, 2007  

For all that I’ve been doing some interesting traveling the past few months, as well as some dutiful traveling, 2007 has been a demanding year for me and I feel stretched as thin as parchment. It’s been my habit in the past to take at least the Monday after a big event like MS&W off and if possible, the whole next week. This year it wasn’t possible, not even to take off Monday. There are end-of-year bookkeeping duties, Friends of the Library events, and summer reading club planning activities spread out on my desk. I felt like if I could get the heaviest of these chores finished this week I could take a real week off starting tomorrow and just sink into peace and relaxation and, well, vacate my real life. I actually did get 89% of those chores done by 5 o’clock yesterday but alas, I crashed and burned today. I tried to go to work, but I was in a cold sweat by the time I got to the mailbox - and turned around and went back to bed. 6 hours of sleep later I’m a little better - sort of draggy groggy - but not with that clammy feeling I had this morning.

I’ll be back at work tomorrow and the Friends dinner is tomorrow night but then this gal is gonna reeee-lax. But in the mean time, I have all 4 Barbara Walker stitch books, two of the Nicky Epstein edge treatment books, some pointy tipped ebony circular’s in size 7 and a lovely wound ball of Tilly Tomas silk. The sun is shining in my green and gold world and there are 4 dogs who’d like to sit at my feet. I believe I’ll go swatch me a little lace.
