ha day, I beat you!

I woke up stressed to no end. Not because Asha was trying to wake me up to go feed her by licking my face and meowing... although that was happening too. But I was super stressed, because I've been trying to contact my bosses at the Business school to have them sign off on my work hours.

They all somehow forgot to tell me that they were gone on vacation. So I called GSB human resources, and the woman who's in charge of the timesheets is on vacation for a MONTH! So I called and left a message for the person in charge while she's gone.

In charge woman called me back and I have to get my boss in austrailia to approve my work hours via email by tomorrow. I sent my boss my stuff, so hopefully, time zone taken into account, my hours will get to the right person at the right time.

Then I lept in my car to go to the psych dept to turn in my work hours over there. My CAR DIDN'T START. :(

but then it did.


I had left the inside light on for a couple days apparently. oops me.

The rest of the day was random. Fighting for parking in a lot that NEVER is more than half full except for today apparently.

I made a knitting needle case for straight needles! It's so cute. It's pink plaid on the outside, and on the inside, the fabric is pink, and soft, with pictures of tea bags and cups of coffee. Printed on the fabric are the words, "I like boys" "I like coffee" "I like tea" "Boys like me"

It rolls up and fastens with a pretty pink ribbon:

Sorry you had such a bad day. There's always tomorrow!

Your needle case is adorable!

Lori said...

Have I mentioned that you are too freaking talented?

Where did you get that fabric - it seems very Japanese 'Hello Kitty' ish.

Lori said...

Thanks! *blush*

I actually got the fabric at Joann's. It's adorable isn't it? It is very Japanese or Korean in its cutesyness :)

Hey Lori - how much fabric did that awfully nice needle roll use up? My needles are currently in a vase and a mug (DPNs) and I'm not very fond of that situation right now.

Hello again.
I found AshasCorner and answered my own ??s. Love the stitch markers...maybe once Xmas shopping for everyone else is finished, a little shopping for me is in order!'

Lori said...

thanks Lynette! Glad you found the tutorial! I totally didn't see that you had commented, otherwise I would have responded earlier. For some reason, blogspot stopped emailing me my comments. or gmail is weeding it out as spam... hmm...

let me know if you have any questions on the needle roll
