Big Happy Dancing!


Yesterday and today have been good days! Yesterday was my last day on my own at work, my boss is back from holiday on Monday and I'm SO relieved. It's not been as bad as I expected, I only cried once lol, but it will be so nice not to be on my own again and have to deal with all the c**p myself.
And last night I finished Eeyore!!! Once I got so the length of the rows started reducing it seemed to go much quicker and I thought whilst I was watching the Big Brother final I might as well keep going, but sort of got carried away and ended up finishing it at about 11.30pm. DH has helped me finish the back off today as it's a real pain to do and I always end up stabbing myself with the needle hehe.
I think this will be my last latch hook rug as it's not something I really enjoy doing, I find it quite boring and the size is a pain, but I do like the finished result. Erin has two in her bedroom, one on the floor and one on the wall. Eeyore is going at my side of the bed as our bedroom is all lilacs, but DH has laid bets Erin will have snaffled it off into her room before the week is out.
Looking back over August, it turned out to be a great month with my new rotation. I've got my stitchy bug back, started a new project, made good progress on a couple of my wips, and finished one I started a LONG time ago lol. If September is as productive I'll be very happy. School of Dolphins will be taking Eeyore's slot next round as that's my oldest UFO and is the one thing DH has ever asked me to stitch. I'm hoping to finish the needleroll this round as I've only got the beads to add then I need to learn how to make it up. I'd also ideally like the finish the page I'm working on of Tomboy, get another chunk of Cirque done and put some time in on Cabin In The Woods which I haven't picked up in some time. So looks like I've got a busy month ahead...
Hope everyone has a great September, next Wed is Erin's first day at school and I'm sure I'm more nervous than she is lol. I'll make sure I post a pic of her in her uniform once I've stopped blubbing....

Eeyore is gorgeous, well done on finishing the rug.
Aww hope Erin has a good first day at school and hope you'll be ok too, can't believe she's starting school already, where have the years gone?
Happy stitching.
