I went to Joann's tonight to look for purple yarn for my little octopus boy, and as usual, on the way to the back of the store to check out the yarn I check the books. The books at my local Joann's aren't organized worth spit, and this drives me batty, but on an eye level shelf, beckoning me, practically jumping into my arms was Vintage Crochet!
I've been waiting for this book to show up there. I wasn't going to buy it until I could get a super duper deal on it, and I caved in a moment of weakness. I was going to buy it full price since I'd used my January mailer coupons already on the borders & flowers books. I got the yarn I needed and went to pay and was mentioning to the wonderful employee that was checking me out that I'd already used my coupons, but had been waiting for this one to show up. She found another customer's mailer that wasn't going to be used and scanned the coupon for me- yay 40% off! How fortuitous!
I've been pooped lately, and actually fell asleep while nursing my daughter to sleep, but since I had tons to do tonight, I'd forewarned my husband that if I did fall asleep I'd need him to wake me up. He'd gone outside to workout while I got the kiddos to bed, and came back in to move our little guy out of our bed into his own, and I popped awake. I'm assuming it's because for the past 4 years I've been waking regularly to soothe and feed a child that I don't sleep very soundly. It's weird too, because I feel like I haven't slept at all, tonight even, but my husband said that I was snoring when he went in to move our little guy.
Anyway, I'm in the midst of typing the pattern out for the sheep and the angel, since it is late again, it's probably not going to be ready until tomorrow or Sunday. I also plan on taking a lot more pictures of the little lamb, I need better light than I have access to at 11:52 pm. So, I'm off to finish up some pattern writing for tonight, and trying to get enough rest to be a functioning mama tomorrow.
One last thought, it is ridiculously easy to get sucked into the vortex that is Ravelry. I love it, but I can look for something there in the forums and then look up and it's like 2 hours later. Man alive.
