Holiday Hangover

I am trying to get myself together to go back to work this morning but it is a struggle. Dinner is in the crockpot, my lunch is packed, now I just have to make it out to my car.
It was nice having a couple of weekdays off. I ran some errands ,went to an exercise class(maybe that is why I am having such a hard time this morning) had lunch with a friend.
I got a sweet treat from a friend in the mail yesterday.

This little tin was filled with some ribbons, a sweet pair of snips and a lovely little crystal snowman.
Yesterday I had lunch with a dear friend. We caught up and talked about EGA, books, movies and lots of other stuff.

She gave me this wonderful chart and the shuttle it goes into. I need to get this stitched up!

Here is my progress on Summer. Did you see the Winter section? It is lovely. I love the little sampler that is the bonus pattern too.
I have to leave for work now.

What a lovely gift you received! Best of luck getting back into the work mode. I think it's a struggle for all of us to get back to "normal life" after the holidays : ( Blessings, Shirlee

Sounds like a wonderful day! Love your new shuttle frame and can't wait to see the stitched piece. Your progress on the BBD project is fab. Just saw the last piece of this sampler and I love it.

Did you put your lunch in your new lunch box? What lovely gifts!

What a lovely gift from your friend.

A hug is worth a thousand words. A friend is worth more.

How nice to be able to spend time with such a kind one.

So hard to get back to reality when there's so much fun to be had doing the things we love. Your BBD LF is so pretty - and Winter is, too. Hope the rest of the week goes well.

Melissa said...

What a cute lunchbox! Did you use it today? I hope back-to-work won't be too strenuous.

You are making great progress on Summer. And yes, the Winter one is lovely. I like all the 'extras' that come with these charts too!

It can be hard getting back to the daily routine.
Sweet tin and gifts.
Dear friends are the most special of all and very necessary in this world.
Your stitching is looking lovely and bonus patterns are great. :)

I hope you had a great day back at work Chris. Lovely gifts - really love that shuttle. Your BBD piece is really looking good.

The shuttle is such a cool idea! I have the chart and a couple of shuttles at home, but have yet to drag'em out into the stitching - uhm, I mean living-room...
Looks like a fun stitch - what a great friend you have!
