This and That

 It's been one of those days... it started with a whole clear day ahead of me and then I've dithered about doing a bit of this and a bit of that without feeling I've actually achieved anything... do you have those days? The reality is that I've probably done quite a lot but nothing feels finished... except perhaps for this tiny little embroidery.





Only about 2" square it's a little badge for Jacob's girlfriend.



Because she's celebrating a special birthday today!

  6. I've had a couple of those days myself this week!

    But you did make a fun card. As you said, you were probably busy all day.

  9. That's a cutie kitty, happy birthday Paige. Completing that embroidery would be enough for me - like most of us, I rarely end the day feeling that I've wrapped anything up.

  11. Most of my days feel like that Gina! Anyway I'd say that completing that cute cat embroidery is definite evidence of a day well spent! He's lovely and perfect for such a very special birthday card.

  13. Oh Gina, do I ever know about how hour glass sand seems sometimes to have a different speed.

    The embroidered badge certainly shows that you've made a unique gift today. (Funny...I also have been knitting away on a gift today, but am no where near finished, just a bit closer.)

  14. That badge is brilliant Gina - so cheering. When you usually describe your days it always sounds as though you're at top speed, achieving absolutely stacks of things. A slower, more leisurely day sounds good to me! I find my brain needs a more bimbly less focussed day now and again - it seems to recover and then think of new things that way.
