*peeks out from behind huge stacks of work...*

Lately I seem to be starting most of my journal entries with 'yes, I'm still alive'... ^^;;

Work is piling up. Which is good. It means that we're finally getting somewhere. But it's bad, because I don't have time for anything else anymore.

No leisurely wandering through all my Firefox tabs. No looking through all those new deviations on DA. No playing browser games... >.>

Not quite, but it sometimes seems that way. I do read through all the entries. But then the phone rings, or my partner sends me a message on Skype, and off I go again. >.<

I wanted to do NaNo, but everytime I typed a sentence I ended up erasing it. The muse just isn't talking to me right now. *sigh*

The only non-work thing I *did* do lately, was sew a curtain for my daughter (for her room at boarding school) and a pillow which I've been wanting to make for *ages*! I figured, if I already have the sewing machine out and all the sewing stuff cluttering up my dining room, why not go all the way?

This is how it turned out:



I used this pattern by Amy Butler. I *didn't* use her fabrics, because they run an average of $ 22-28 per meter (a little more than a yard). I went to IKEA instead. ^^;; There I get nice fabrics for about $ 8 a yard. Sometimes even less...

On the other hand, this thing is *huge* (see size comparison with cat) and needs an inordinate amount of stuffing. >.> I had to re-order stuffing because the bag (what the lady is holding in her arms) bag I had wasn't enough. O.o

So if I make another one, it will be the smaller version. ^^;;

Now, back to my stacks of work. My to-do lists are getting longer, rather than shorter... >.>

*HUGS FList*

Keep safe and sound, all! <3 <3 <3
