This week is getting to be a bear at work. I have to get the depreciation budget for our 2012 fiscal year done this week and it will translate into a couple more late nights. And possibly some work over the weekend, but I am trying to avoid that.

In any event, I have some thoughts. Bear with me. It is my blog after all.
  1. My mug rug was completed last night and taken to the Guild meeting tonight to swap out. I think it was well received. I also received mine (and Barb's, but that is another story) and I love it (well, both of them!). No pictures yet because I am being lazy after a long day at work and a Guild meeting.
  2. I ordered 6 GO dies last week and they were delivered today. No pictures of those yet. They are actually still in the wrappers! I hope to get to cutting this weekend.
  3. I finished reading U is for Undertow by Sue Grafton today. I haven't read one of her books in at least a year and it was so comforting to come back to an author that I know and love! Now, I am ready for V is for... whenever it may come out!
  4. Since Regina is making great progress on reading Voyager by Diana Gabaldon (book 3), I can start reading Drums in Autumn which is book 4. Yahoo! How are the rest of you who started the Outlander series coming along?
  5. I am thinking that I want one of those widgets that shows what books you are reading to put on my sidebar, but I am wondering if I will have to update it too much. Or even if people care about what I am reading. Or what is on my sidebar.
  6. Today is Wednesday which makes me think of Year of the PIGS. If you haven't posted about how you store your PIGS and UFOs, there is still time to post and enter HERE. And if you haven't read the other posters answers, you can find their links in that post as well. I had thought about doing a motivational type post today, but it didn't materialize. How about this.......    YOU CAN DO IT!!! With the 'it' being whatever obstacle you are facing at this moment. Does that work?
OK, that is enough information for tonight. Maxie is giving me 'the look' that tells me it is time for bed. He said I can post pictures tomorrow night. :)

Sorry I missed last night's meeting. Had a screaming headache and wasn't feeling real social. Stayed home with two glasses of wine and early bedtime.

What dies did you buy? I have the circles, 5" square die, and 6-1/2" dies.

Looking forward to seeing the mug rugs. What dies did you get?

Hope you don't have to work the weekend. You DO have crafty things to do after all!

I'm not quite halfway thru reading #2 yet.

I had *thought* about pulling out my PIG #6 to start cutting. Does that count for progress? LOL

I'm on my first Outlander book (at your suggestion). I'm wondering if this woman can survive for another 6 or so books!

I'm debating on either getting "U is for Undertow" on my iPad to read or to get it in audio form. I like Sue Grafton too.

I love Sue Grafton's books, even though they are not 'modern', as in the present sense...if that makes sense!
I'd like to know what you're reading, I'm always looking for new reading material. I'm reading books by Phillip Margolin right now.

Do you belong to Goodreads? They have a widget that you can use (easily) to update your blog as long as you keep Goodreads updated. It's really easy!
