friday - WIP



I am loving how this is going. I will start by apologizing to Jenny because this is late. But I regrouped. I hope she will accept my apologies in advance.
I adore the colors and the concept here. I will post a completed photo once Jenny has received it.
Scraps of fabric and ribbon and a mixture of vintage and new buttons. Some lace trim. Some vintage lace. As my Mom would say "a dukes mixture". All from my "stash". Fun stuff. The most fun was pouring a jar of buttons out on a tray and trying them for placement on this.
It has been a tough week. Internal conflict on the ball team. The last week of school. Meeting after meeting at school and at work. I am tired and cranky and I made a huge mistake about a jobsite this morning. (Sent driver to the wrong address) So today is going to be a struggle. And in the back of my brain, the fear sits. I go back to the doctor next week for annual physical and mammogram. I don't care how far away from the "C" word I get, the fear creeps back in. I tell people that its okay and it really is, but that old demon resumes its relentless torture on my brain at this point.
The girls have a summer workout schedule that is ungodly, and gas is over 3.00 a gallon here. Molly and I will spend some weekends travelling to look at campuses, so those extra expenses for gas/hotel will have a huge impact on the budget. The academic scholarship information is starting to come, so maybe someone will help us pay for school. It is scary to think about my baby going away to college but this time next year, that's what we will be planning.
I will be at home a fair amount this weekend, so maybe I can do some additional housecleaning and organizing. It is so deperately needed.
Gratitudes for today.
1. I love my new haircut.
2. I am almost caught up on swaps.
3. Molly is number 2 in the junior class.
4. I love the colors in this WIP.
5. I scored BIG at the thrift store this week.
6. I start back to the gym next Tuesday night. I really need to do something different as my weight loss has completely stopped and I still have lots to lose.
I do hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a fantastic weekend.

I want to see the hair cut! I just chopped all mine off too (well, 12 inches of it). :)
