Husband and several of his guy friends were away this weekend on a "boy's trip", leaving me to my own devices. Naturally, this ended up being a jam packed weekend having fun with my girlfriends - watched "Magic Mike" (eh), grabbed lunch at a tea house (yum), pedicures (divine), an impromptu sleepover too (hilarious!) Unfortunately, all the fun I was having meant that I made absolutely zero progress on packing up all my craft supplies in the nursery so that we can make a start with painting. Good thing there's a national holiday this week!
In the meantime, while I also didn't get any further with making stuff for the little one, I finally got around to snapping a quick photo of my cross-stitch in progress. It's a zoo themed birth record, which is actually working up pretty quickly. I think the blocks of color without complicated shading and color changes are helping that. I actually bought it a couple of years ago on clearance at Joann for $3 and stashed it away...then promptly forgot about it. The little guy doesn't have a name yet, but I'm looking forward to being able to stitch it on here eventually.
