It is Black Friday but it feels like a Sunday for some reason. I didn't get very much done yesterday but I learned that it takes a lot less time to cook a turkey in a convection oven. The turkey got done way earlier than I expected but everything was fine. I ate too much and I'll have to walk forever to make up for it. I got to have my pumpkin pie. For some crazy reason, the stuffing tasted especially good this year. Then today I forgot to put on my FitBit so I don't get credit for all the walking I did at the Y. Rats. Oh well.
I put on the first coat of ivory on the step stool. I'm a little scared to paint it wild and crazy colors. But I figure if it looks awful, I can just paint over it and redo it.
I picked up the needle book of Ebony and Ivory, took off the ribbon edge and started over.
I am happier with the corners this time around but the ribbon only just meets at the top so I have to do something there to cover it up. Three bows are added at the top to hold it all together.
I thought a great goal would be to finish off the main piece of Ebony and Ivory. It is all stitched. My challenge is that the sewing machine is moved and unplugged but I can sweet talk DH into putting it back for me. I have to locate the back to the needlebook. After cleaning stuff up, it is MIA. I thought it was on the sewing table but didn't find it last night. That's what happens when you clean up, you can't find anything.
Am I going shopping today? Not a chance, unless it is cybershopping. But I'm trying to be good and not spend money. Not spending money is like holding your breath, you can only do it for so long.
