I had already missed one birthday on my team back on February 3rd (of all people our MD, and I felt terrible about it!) We also had a birthday on Valentine's Day so I believe I mentioned in my last post that I planned to have gifts for both them of when I came into work this week.
The stress of work, life and wedding planning resulted in what turned into a KILLER migraine on Saturday morning (bad enough that my forehead was bruised Sunday morning) so not enough house work got done, and zero crafting got done until Sunday evening.....not even close to what I had planned way back on Friday afternoon.
These spa clothes went to our MD. I had made that set for 4 for my boss during Secret Santa and she was really amazed by them, so I knew she would enjoy them possibly more than a scarf, etc. My first intentions were to make 4 in different colors, then 4 in 2 sets of color and ended up with these 2 that match. I just didn't have another 2 hours to give to them.....she loved them either way so as I expected it may be, it turned out just fine!
I've collected a list of birthdays for the team, 1 to make some soft of baked good and 2 so I can keep making small little gifts for everyone. I think it's going to be spa cloths primarily for those with last spring/summer birthdays. It's fun to have a variety of people to be gifting my work to as it gives me an opportunity to use some patterns that I normally wouldn't have anyone to make something for, allows me to buy yarn I wouldn't usually buy AND I supposed I should be using the yarn in my stash first ;-)
Just found out that Jon wants to go out with the boys tomorrow night after work. Worked out perfectly, I was kind of dreading the conversation of telling him how this was what I planned to do tomorrow after work! It's funny how frequently we're on the same page w/o talking most days <3
Oh these are my Valentine's Day roses too, I'm a bit behind on so much!
Ok, I think I should pop off my heels and go for a quick walk in our 70 degree weather today in DC - if nothing else, stop up to Starbucks for an ice coffee!
Final side note - Maybe what I really need to do is try to write something up over the weekend when I at least don't have work getting in the way....
