Crossing it Off

When I worked in theater costuming and we would be down to that last week before an opening a big list would be made of all that was left to do.  You put a red circle next to the item you were working on and then, when done, you had the pleasure to cross it out in black sharpie.  I love crossing things off lists.  To obliterate even the words on the list for an item.

Colorado is 3 weeks away and I have a HUGE list.  However, I am slowly crossing things off.
Here is this weeks done pile!

2 pairs of pants for hiking in Colorado - check
2 new outfits for Boo to wear in Colorado - check
Burp cloths and a swaddle blanket for cousins baby - Check
Roses and Peonies in the ground - check
Sprinklers fixed - check
House warming gift for friend who is moving - check
Carol Berg book done - I WISH  *laugh*  I just started sewing the signatures.

Things not on the list but that were accomplished this week:
My main character finally told me his name.  Tamasaburou Cainne.  Now if only I could figure out how a non-corporeal being can attack a solid structure in a life or death circumstances way - *laugh*

Pictures to follow!

The Tome of Berg

Well I've gotten the second cover embroidered for the Berg book.  This one turned out a lot nicer than the other and that's a blessing as this is a gift for the author.  Now all I have to do is bind it.  *LAUGH*  I'm not going to get the Reticella bookmark done, but them's the breaks

I've gotten a number of bookmarks done and sent off to people.  I need to do 2 more and get those in the mail.  I also have to get a bunch of sewing done for Colorado.  Oh, and put in plant, fix the water so said plants don't die and keep up with things like teaching the Sunbeams.  That's getting really really hard.

Oh and I'm working on a story.  SO far so good and I'm determined with this.  This will be a year I get a good chunk of a story our of my head an on paper. 

PS: Started the Altar cloth . . . .AGAIN.
