A New Kit...Almost Ready...

Almost a whole week and this is all I have to show for my efforts...how sad is that?
Well, It was a crappy week, what can I say? LOL! Seriously, ever have one of those darn weeks when you take one step forward and two steps back? That was my week in a nutshell. As things began to brighten up...GP took ill. Hello?! Instead of having a long weekend of crafting bliss GP decides (Yes, he did it on purpose! I told him to keep his hands in his pockets when he stepped outside our germ free home, I told him! What was he thinking holding on to the handrail on the escalator? EWWW!) Anyway... there you have it, a germ riddled kid in my house. A sure sign that there will no crafting, painting, sewing or even resting in this place until the long weekend is a thing of the past. =(

I had high hopes for this great loooong weekned. I was counting the days till I had three afternoons of ME time...but it was not meant to be. Instead I was nursing the germ-y one, LOL! I'd give you details but it might be TMI, and it "might" gross you out, just a tad.

Anyway, I did manage to trace and cut two sets of applique pieces for an upcoming kit. I am cutting the kits as I find the perfect fabrics and decide what to use where. You know how that is, the right fabric for the right spot... I'll see if I can get it done before the weekend.
Did I mention I had a car accident too? Hello!? I told you I had a crappy weekend! yes, I slammed into a car that decided she should park behind me as I was pulling out of a spot at the Nashua Post Office. After I finished all the paperwork I called Gino and told him that I am trading in the Murano for a Hummer...because if I'm going to have to do so much paperwork and listen to so much whining (from the other driver who just happened to decide to park her little car behind my big fat truck) I might as well make sure I cause some serious damage...and I mean, like I should just freakin' total her car, LOL!
Seriously folks, the policeman told her the damage to the vehicles was too minor to file a report and the woman almost broke into tears... I wanted to say, "Maam, I'm sorry I didn't hit you hard enough to file a police report!" My bumper has a ding...and GP was in the car and didn't even notice. Yeah. I just love a good drama. Anyway, he noted our insurance information and sent us on our merry way. I expect a call from an injury attorney any day now...whiplash or something. And THEN I'm getting a Hummer! No more fender benders for me!

Made me think of that scene from 'Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe' - 'Face it girls, I am older and I have more insurance.' ;-)

It was a simpathy ding. Nyshma was in an accident on Monday. They might have to total her car. It's on the fence. She was fine but the car was a bit damaged! Happy to hear your altercation was not so severe.

Oh! Hope Gene is feeling better!! Did he drag himself to watch Percy Jackson over the weekend?
That project looks like Spring!! I think I need to make something Springy.
