What a week!

Before I get into my stitching update, I have to say, I've had probably the most stressful week yet at my job. I actually broke down in tears one day this week. We've been working really hard to keep up with our deadlines, but it seems the "faster we go, the behinder we get". It's been a challenge and at times a bit hard to take, but I'm not giving up and I won't. I've learned so much more about the guidelines we have to follow as a "medicaid" insurance company in the past couple of weeks. Suffice it to say, it's been fascinating.

Ok now, on to the stitchy stuff!

Last week my random number generator came up with 13. So I got to work on my otters a bit more. This is where I was when I put them down last. Now even though work has been crazy, I've tried to put aside time to stitch every day. All week long, I was "supposed" to work from home each night, but something seemed to be dead set on me not being able to accomplish that feat. Monday, they had to reinstall my computer at work so I couldn't access it remotely. Tuesday was just NOT going to work for me, I was so tired, I couldn't concentrate on work. Wednesday, I tried logging in, it wouldn't let me since they reinstalled on Monday and it was too late for the helpdesk to be of any real help, yesterday I called the helpdesk as soon as I got home from work to get it so I could log in, well the girl that I talked to did a very good job of making it so that I could log in, but then she stayed logged in so when I got back from picking my hubby up from work, I couldn't get her logged out, and of course, no one at the building to go shut the machine down and restart it, so yesterday was out too! OY!! So I get to fit 8 more hours of work in to tonight and tomorrow. Wow that was a bit of a story huh? Needless to say I've been in need of relaxation!

Now throughout this week I've been working on stitching a little bit each night to help wind down. One evening I realized that the blue that is called for on the pattern looked a little dull when used on this beautifully hand dyed fabric that I got from Stitchnmomma. So I asked the crazy women in this challenge which they thought looked better. My first instinct was the bright blue, but then after looking at all 3 decided that the middle 826, looked the best. So off to the frogging I went so I could make it look fabulous.

This is what it looks like now after a weeks worth of here and there stitching. Not too bad if I do say so myself. Let me know your thoughts on the blue if you care to, not that I'm likely to frog more, but I'd like to know what you think.

Thanks for taking the time out of your day to "listen" to me vent a little. It's been hectic, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world....well, maybe for more stitching time, but wouldn't we all?

So,until next time...Happy Stitching!!

Your workweek sounded awful! It's time for a relaxing weekend of stitching! I like the blue floss you chose. How fun to use a random number generator to pick what to stitch!
