It has been a very busy Labor Day weekend. Food shopping, cleaning, laundry and that was just Friday night!
All in all it was a very successful crafting weekend. I finished another secret project which I will reveal in few weeks, the sweatshop workers were out in force with fingers a blazing and my scissors need to be sharpened because I was cutting out patterns like a crazy woman.
Saturday evening sweatshop worker Sharon came over to assist sweatshop worker mom with the candle rings for the 25th wedding anniversary party. Each candle rings has 8 "teardrops" and each one has three colors. Round one was the light pink, DONE, round two was the dark pink, DONE, round three is the white, 1/10th DONE. We have a few more weeks before they are due to the customer and with the great progress this weekend I'm sure they will be ready for an on time delivery.
Saturday evenings entertainment included Walt Disney's Enchanted. What a great movie! I just love the bursting into song in the middle of central park like it is something that happens everyday.
Sunday we were working like mad! CEOreo allowed us to enjoy the weather and take the sweatshop outside. Sharon, Mom and myself sat out on the deck enjoying the sun, the fresh air and the 93.3 WMMR Back to School A to Z weekend while we worked our little finger, thumbs and wrists to the bone. We had some afternoon entertainment that included a brief burst of work from sweatshop worker Roland. However if you blinked you missed it, thank goddess for cameras. After 4 hours or so we broke for some much needed grub and dessert that was most excellent. Mom's township famous, Peach pie! Don't even ask for any because it is already gone.
The talking peaches say Hello! (inside joke)Then back to the sweatshop in the Craft Cave were the evenings entertainment including Labyrinth and Food Network. Since it was a holiday Sunday night we brought out some Angry Pirates which we made earlier and froze. MMMMmmmm! Not sure if it was the extra banana rum or the sun or pure crafting exhaustion but after a half a glass we all started to slow down and get a little....lets say loopy........Labor day for sure! Mom and I worked all day on the deck crafting. She completed round two of the candle rings and I cut and cut and cut out pattern after pattern until my thumb couldn't take it anymore. So after dinner we just rested. Believe it or not! Yes even we do rest for time to time.
I'm feeling pretty good about what was accoplished this weekend. I just hope that we keep this pace up and get as much on the list done as we can. 12 weeks to go and counting down!
