I used flour sack towels for the body of the pillow and appliqued the pumpkin and felt stem. You can't see it, but I stitched some grooves into the pumpkin to add texture. It turned out cute, for a quick afternoon project - little G liked it so much, she took it to bed with her!
Next up... I'm feeling a candy corn pillow coming on.

Since daddy gets to say that more often than me, it's so great when I can tell them that too... and luckily, I have tomorrow off so "no work tomorrow" for me!
I'm looking forward to a full day at the fair with my gorgeous man and my chickies.

So, things are settling down a little at work. The final phase of transition is next week (moving things today - yes, on a Saturday), so at least everything and everyone will finally be under one roof. Emotions are settling as well, so a little less of the hair on my neck stands up when I walk in the door.
The weather is cooling off in Texas and we finally got some rain so things outside are greener and less muggy and more pleasant. Hallelujah.
I received my Rowan CashSoft (ebay score!) a couple of days ago and hope to cast on tonight for my Kim Hargreaves sweater. I tell ya, a little knitting will do my soul some good.
So hang around, there should be some picture-laden posts soon and some craftiness going on around here...

I've missed blogging.
I've missed quiet evenings having time for blogging.
And drinking wine.
Okay - still drinking the wine, but you know where I'm coming from...
I can't wait for things to slow down and return to somewhat normalcy so I may resume my normal scheduled routines! I did venture out to the Yarn Barn in SA, only to find out it wasn't there anymore! A few google searches later and I've found the new location, but think I will just order my yarn online for the Kim Hargreaves sweater. A little yarn and needles would do this girl some good. At least maybe it'd keep me going past 8:30 in the evening...
I hope to be back soon~

My job has pretty much taken over my life with all of the changes going on, and I am desperate for things to be back to (somewhat) normal. It is quite stressful being the person in charge of everything but in control of nothing. Does that make sense? Decisions are being made by people I never see and the communication of those decisions is nearly nonexistent. That, and I'm accountable to make sure that everything is done seamlessly.
Oh, and I haven't even mentioned the personalities involved.
I keep praying for patience and for the grace to give it up to the only one truly in control...
