I currently live in New Mexico with my boyfriend and beautiful daughter in The Retro Palace. I'm currently a student double-majoring in Cosmetology and Architectural Drafting. I spend what little free time I have knitting, crocheting, sewing, and almost any other project I have time for. I do occasionally eat and shower, but only if there is no knitting to be done.

Progress and Parties

Last night, James' sister got into town. We all got together at the Cowgirl Hall of Fame for dinner and drinks! (yes, that was the party I was referring to. Lame, huh?) I had a wonderful marguerita and split a burger with my hunny-poo. Joie was pretty fussy, but we dealt with it and stuck around for a few hours. It was a lot of fun! Although I would be okay with a home cooked meal here pretty quick, even if I'm the one who has to cook it.

Progress on the wrap dress is going really well! I've now finished the back completely and have moved on to the front- I think a hear marching bands in the distance! (that might just be me going crazy, though. One never really knows.)I'm really enoying watching it progress, and I'm excited to see it finished on on my wee one! I think once I finish this and we get moved, I'm going to try and focus on sewing her the four or so more outfits that I had planned to make her for the summer. The patterns are pretty simple, and if I work on it consistently, I'll finish one in about 2 days. I miss sewing! It's been a month or so since I have sewn anytihng. I should really patch some of James' work pants, too. But what fun is that?!

The move is only a week away now! I'm excited. Not that excited about all the packing that I have left to do, but hey, it needs to be done. I think I am driving James a bit crazy, because I am trying to limit what we buy now, especially groceries. That, and we really have to watch our budget to make sure we aren't poor for the first week or so that we are down there. I think that I have it all pretty well planned out, though, and we should be completely fine!

I'm excited to meet all the Stitch n' Bitchers soon! I'm not sure if I will be able to make it the first week- I feel kind of bad leaving James with the baby on his second day of commuting an hour home after a hard day of work. I think I'll give him a week to get adapted first. Well, from the sounds of it, I have to change a diaper- hope everyone has a great weekend!
