"I AM taking deep breaths.. I think.."

It seems like I'm not going to be able to get through this week without some serious multi-tasking. It's only Tuesday and my head is already spinning with patterns that need to be finished, corners that need to be cleaned and dusted, doctor's appointments and engagements I wish could be avoided.. I'm muttering mantras like "chain stitch, fasten off, need some lunch, call the doctor, check email, call doctor again, check email, chain stitch, cat puke!, take pictures, nap, check email, pimp self out on twitter, is it really 11 'o clock already?, chain stitch" under my breath while trying not to overdose on Starbucks DoubleShots and Snow Caps. Once again, my life is completely in the hands of someone else and their time schedule and wrapped up in their problems and I feel as if I'm hourly banging my head against a wall trying to motivate them to get their head out of their ass and it's more time-consuming then I can afford right now.

The one thing I did manage to get wrapped up today was the posting of a new pattern in the shop! Meet Moby Pete, the Great Off-White Whale, the lesser-known brother of Moby Dick. He's perfect for a new baby or make a set of them (one with a flower and one with a top hat) for a newly married couple!
You can find him nestled in the shop here and purchase him for only $4.00. So pop on over and check him out!

In other news, the Grand Prize Winner of my Excitable Embroidery Giveaway, Biologie, blogged about her winnings over the weekend in a post entitled "Hurray for Crochet." I would definitely recommend her blog; between the recipes and stories about her family, it's worth a read.

I'd love to stay and continue to chat, but I have a doctor's appointment in a few hours (big suprise) and I still have to try and fix the Toshiba I'm using so that CTRL+C actually works and brushing the touchpad doesn't send my pointer off into no-mans land. It's going to be a long day... so much for cutting back on the DoubleShots



  1. I love Moby! I had a week like this a few weeks ago. Now I'm having a wierd week where everything is starting to break....

  2. moby pete is worth taking a moment for a few deep breaths! he's freaking adorable. so, deep breaths, enjoy the moment, then double-shot away!

    i missed my afternoon latte and that means nothing gets done! hope your week gets a little easier darling!
