A Snuggie and A Half-Marathon!

Hey! You'll never guess what I found at the local cross-stitch store today! A Q-Snap SNUGGIE!!!

Cool, eh??

Onto another topic....this weekend was really important for me...I accomplished one of my biggest goals- I ran a half-marathon! My friends and I ran the Scotiabank Waterfront Half-Marathon on Sunday and it was amazing!! Did any of you hear about the 100 year old whow as running the full marathon? We saw him walk past us while we were waiting outside of our hotel, that was really cool.

Kasey and I ran the whole race together and crossed the finish line together, which was just soooo amazing. Erin2 twisted her foot in a streetcar rail and had to drop out around 10k....and I then spent the rest of the day in the ER with her...luckily nothing was broken.

Here are a couple of pics!

We may look a little haggard, but after running 21.1k, we're both still standing!!

Decisions, Decisions!

Hello there my stitchy friends!

As I'm sure you're all aware, Christmas is just around the corner! I had this oh so brilliant thought come to me last night while sitting around lamenting the benefits of saving money, that I would cut back on Christmas presents this year. Instead of buying everyone and their dog a present, I thought I'd make some instead! A little basket of homemade jam...made my yours truly of course, a little packet of cookies perhaps, or crackers to go with the jam (now there's a thought!), maybe a little decorative spreading knife or some such thing, and....wait for it......a stitched ornament!!!

The issue at hand is this: I have far too much stitching on the go as it is...see: Crazy January Challenge: Jodie's Epic Failure. So...do I continue on with the Challenge that will never end, or take a little break and stitch some ornaments? Oh dear, what a dilemma!
