What's so special you ask?
Well...have you ever wondered why HeLP is held on the 17th of each month?
That's because it's my birth day.
BUT ... Today is not just my birth day but it's my BIRTHDAY!!!!!
It's even a birthday that ends in a 5!
I hope all y'all will be spending your Sunday working on an EPP project to help celebrate with me! Oh and don't forget to have cake - with those 5 minute mug cakes all over the internet that should be a breeze.
I didn't get nearly as many hexies done this week as I had planned. I think a lot of our lives go that way but I think I have a pretty good excuse. 3 actually. Long Story Short - Saturday afternoon was taken with a nasty MVA. The kid made out pretty well given how bad the accident was. Sunday was taken with hockey games for both of my nephews.
And last but not least was this fire at 1:15 am Monday morning.
|And just so you know how close to home this was...|
I looked out my upstairs bedroom window when the siren blew and saw no smoke or flames.
This photo was taken only 30 seconds later.
As an EMT I help distribute coffee and make sure the firemen have gloves on, etc, in the freezing temps, Let's just say I went back to bed at 6:30 and still made it to work by 9. Barely. It took 2 days for my toes to warm up...
I spent a few nights trying to catch up on sleep but finally got my hex on again Thursday night! I had to move my project to the folding table though.
A. It's really too big to be in a lap anyway.
B. Squeaky wants to sit on half of my lap but not be under the quilt.
C. Zorro wants back in the house as soon as I have myself settled on the couch.
In case you can't tell by my horrible pictures, I am finally finishing the ends of my Value Proposition quilt - which means 4 corners and 6 half diamonds. I am half way across one end and hope to spend my birthday weekend getting as close to finished as possible.
You might be able to see that I was watching Blacklist Season 1 and I have several other TV shows on DVD to keep me going. I just realized I didn't stock up on snacks. Better do that on my way home. My ultimate goal is to have the borders on (and maybe have it spray basted??!!) by the end of the month. As long as there are no more excuses that should work out just fine...
And here's the fun part --- What hexie project are you working on?? It can be a current project, a UFO or a dream project. Please join the linky party!
I'm in the process of putting a little prize together...you know, for my birthday! I know there will be chocolates and something hexie related but who knows what else I'll find. I'll update this post as soon as I finalize the goodies.
Leave me a comment for a chance at the prize.
Join the linky party and add another comment saying you did so for another chance.
I'll draw the winner at noon on Monday, January 25th. Good luck and Happy Hexing!
