This is going to be an interesting weekend with Vogon around more (Friday-Tuesday was crunch time for him at work) going into the weekend and Laurel around after it. It will also be interesting because it is going to be cold (for Dallas) Thursday and Friday, then warm up so I can give my long underwear a break from being worn in lieu of being able to retain my own body heat.

I found eilonwy's package of embroidery floss hiding under some outgoing parcels and decided to break it in with a little literary homage, so I'm embroidering an illustration of Ramona Quimby sitting cross-legged with her chin on her hands (per the header on the Ramona section of Beverly Cleary's website) on a sweatshirt for Laurel. I like it so much I'm thinking about embroidering Ralph S. Mouse on a shirt next. (On his motorcycle, of course.)

The CRAFT Blog showed a Caltrain bike cozy today; I immediately thought of polyhymnia.

Woot! 1) I'm very relieved to find out that the box got there safely and 2) what an awesome project to use the thread for!!

Good luck with your craftiness, gimme a shout if you need escape late at night Friday and Saturday. As you know, I'll be up.

In fact, I'm already a bit understimulated at work tonigth already.

I should invest in long undies. It's 0 outside. My hands start freezing just walking to the car.

Nope, but we could be evil twins. Feel free to add me! I always blink when people ask that.

I am going to photograph and post the finished Ramona embroidery later today.
