Cross stitching update and a little rant.

How time flies when most of what you have in life is work and the commute to and from. I'll let you in on a secret, I don't like to drive. I like to take trips, Oh yes... Packing and planning and all of the things that I don't need but remember to bring. But the daily grind, yuck! I have a 1 hour drive now and man oh man I do not look forward to it. Once I arrive at work I'm great, work is fun and I am enjoying the new people all around me. When it's time to go *sigh* my shoulders sag a little and back into the car I go for my 1 hour drive. Although it has given me a chance to listen to some older CD's from my collection of 90's rock but even then... the drive, the traffic, the monotony. Most unfortunately public transit is not on my side considering the hours that I work. 11:30 AM to 8:00 PM PST. (slight light at the end of the tunnel will be changing in the start of November to 10:30 AM to 7:00PM PST) Otherwise I would just sit back and stitch away riding the light rail.
Needless to say, perhaps my bit of whining was a little unnecessary. I have made some progress on my Cross stitch wizard.

Anywhoo.. I also wanted to share a project that I bring out each year. The story behind my creepy little house is that one year I dressed as the Wicked witch of the East... East right? You know the one, Dorothy's house landed on her. Well this was the house-hat I made for myself that year. Since then it is part of they little Halloween village that is slowly becoming more recognizable as a village. Honestly I have been quite pleased with my handy work on this little house that I thought that given the season I would share it with you all.

I spent a bunch of time explaining what I was supposed to be that year. Given that our theme was Wizard of OZ I thought it would be obvious... House on my head... Dressed as a witch... Guess not. Now it is part of my yearly tiny Halloween village, My son loves it (he's almost 8) and now he wants to make one too.

Well hope to post again before too long.

Till then... keep on stitching!
