I've been trying to write this post since the beginning of the month! Thank you for all your comments. Work is still "terrible"...I'm quoting that because it's not terrible that I have a job, nor is it terrible that everyone has so much confidence in me that I get put on projects that are running behind, but it has been very stressful and will continue to be until October. Then it will just be regular stressful. =) The other big work news is that Michael's office is moving, so he's been working from home while they find another location. (Cart, horse, anyone?) As a result, we can no longer carpool to the office...he used to work 5 minutes from me. =( So, I have been riding MARTA (Atlanta's mass transit). Now, I could drive if I wanted to. But I hate driving in traffic, and I don't love driving the PT Cruiser even in no traffic. The worst part has been the walk from the station to the office in the heat! I really, really want a Segway, but they're much more expensive than I'd thought.

I have so much backlog, it's not even funny. But I'll try to start moving forward and filling in the gaps later. All I've got right now is this picture of a finished was the next-to-last one for our annual kit exchange, which happened in July. It's the Cherished Stitches biscornu from last year's JCS ornament issue.

Work. That's pretty much all I've got.

Sorry your work sucks right now...been there too. Hope things get better for you soon.

Your biscornu is gorgeous, what a beautiful ornament it made!

wow...biscornu looks gorgeous...

Very pretty biscornu.

It's good to be busy. You'd hate it if they didn't need you.

I've only ridden Marta a couple of times, but I thought it was a great way to travel around the city.

Hope you can de-strees a bit soon.

Sounds like you need a scooter to get to and from MARTA. If you get one under 50cc, you'll need no tag/title, no insurance or motorcycle license. Plus, you can join my gang and we can terrorize the city.

I've been MIA from my own blog because I've been busy at work, too, so I can relate to how you've been feeling.

That biscornu is adorable!
