Hi, and welcome to my profile and blog! My name is Jodie and I'm a cross-stitch addicted museum studies graduate student. I love stitching (clearly), knitting, quilting, reading, writing, and learning. I have a weird obsession with donkeys that I can't really explain. I'm very attached to the citizens of Llanview Pennsylvania who make the ABC soap One Life to Live worth watching every day, and I am freakishly obsessed with Rachael Ray. I'm a runner, a gardener, and a lover of all different kinds of tea with a very serious coffee addiction. I volunteer at a canoe museum, and I work in a salad bar chopping fruits and veggies, creating baskets, trays, and various seasonal concotions. I have amazing friends, a great family, and the most beautiful German Shepherd. So basically....I'm just me!
I thought I'd share a little accomplishment...all of the flowers (except one) have been stitched, and I've started on old Earl himself! Here's a pic:
I think it's looking pretty good so far :-)
June seems to always been a crazy month, doesn't it? In my family/circle of friends it seems to be rivalling Christmas for first place on the busy scale. One of my closest friends has a birthday, my brother has a birthday, I have a birthday, my Mom has a birthday, there's Father's Day (which is on my birthday- kills 2 birds with 1 stone!), my cousin is graduating from highschool, there's a memorial party, Paddlefest, National Canoe Day, a concert, and a myriad of other things. I'm counting down the days until July when I'm finally free! From some things anyways!
My dog doesn't seem to be handling all the stress and busyness very well. He's been working on a hole very diligently, and it's up to his neck now. He likes to just go down into it and lay there, hiding from all of the commotion. It's very cute. But we're afraid the whole house might collapse into it hahahaha.
That's all for now, I have a lacrosse game to get to! Yahooo!
