The evening

Drove by the pumpkin place on the way home, but I realized I only had a $10, so I didn't stop. But I did take a detour home (because of going past the pumpkins) and ended up in a neighborhood that my elementary school bus used to take us through. I think I could point out where just about everyone on our bus lived. Kinda scary.

Leftovers for dinner (Pizza and Chili for me). Albert and scouts and Dad had tennis. Watched the food channel.

The fabric that I ordered on SATURDAY for my Christmas cross-stitch sampler came in the mail TODAY. Yikes, these people are fast. So I put my chick (previous cross-stitch project) on hold and I jumped into my new sampler. The fabric is Linen, which is an even weave, so it's a bit daunting, but I think I've gotten the hang of it (It's 28ct and I'm doing 2 over 2). I finished all the running stitches that make up the borders (it's split into 6 sections). I'm hoping to have it at least finished by Christmas, if not framed and hanging someplace. It should fit in a regular 6x9 frame, so I'm going to try and find one I like and do it myself. At least, that's the plan. The only problem is that I can't really see after I've worked on it for more than an hour and a half straight. I like working on it for long periods of time, though, and I tend not to look up at all. I realized that I was kind of looking to the side of where I needed to see so that I could see it. Very strange. And I definitely have to close my left eye (the bad one) to be more exact. Which I have to do with this even weave. I love how I pick hard projects as my first ones. e.e dorkface.

I think that's it for tonight, no Mike again. :-(
