I really couldn't think of an appropriate title for this post . . . so there you go. And here I go!
I am at work, and it is very very cold in my lab. It's about 60 outside right now but the AC in the building is on full blast and they can't turn it off. Because it is BROKEN. So we are all trying not to shiver too much whilst we pipette things and do research. I am wearing a shirt, a sweater, one of Randy's sweat shirts, and a jacket. Brr.
However, this post made me all warm inside and made me hop around in my seat like a little kid who has had too much sugar. I MUST get home and make some stripey tights for the Bean. The pattern and tutorial are from Rae of Made by Rae, and I am now in love with her and her site and will be spending the rest of the day scouring the blog for more goodies. How great would pink and white stripey tights look with some cute bloomers? Gah!
Also, I am so proud of myself. Well, I didn't do much, I only got together the best friggin quilting bee group EVER! Kelly's month is April, but she sent out her fabric a little early (oh the excitement!). And boy did she send out some fabric! Go over to the flickr site and check out some of the awesome blocks these ladies are already making. Anne of Film and Thread got put on the front page of Flickr Explore whith her picture of the block she made! Tho, really, everything Anne makes is awesome so, yeah.
And Kelly, if you are reading this, I have started my block but I decided to do it by hand since we had some extra time. A bit ambitious, but I hope it will be worth it! I can't resist an opportunity to applique.
So there you have me, on a tuesday, shaking from the cold and the excitement and the pride.
Oh, and that picture at the top? That is our cat, Penguin (though Randy has lovingly dubbed her The Witt), racing down the stairs in our apartment. She got really sick last month. We didn't know what was wrong and the vet thought it might be the C-word. But one tooth extraction, lots of meds and half of my tax return later she is back to her old frisky self. Thank goodness!
