Skipping work, doing nothing.

Yep, I decided to take some well-deserved vacation time today. Due to my employer's STOOPID HR policies, I accrue vacation time month to month, but have to use my time (up to a max of 10 measly little days) by the end of the fiscal year. WTF? This means that if you use all your time off, you have no vacation time for July and August - when everyone wants to go on vacation. It is the dumbest system EVER. Anyway, the library director let me record some extra days on my June timesheet (so I'd use all 10 of my days) and then take days off later. (If you aren't completely confused by now, I applaud you.)

So anyway, I took today off. I accomplished nothing. Oh wait, I showered. Wheeeee. And I picked up my pictures so I could show you all this....


The completed butterfly basket. Cute, eh? The light isn't the greatest - and the ribbon really IS purple. The sunlight just makes it look kind of magenta...
Since this weekend is the Freebie SAL over on the Needle & Thread BB, I was good and put "Stitching the Standard" back on the scroll rods. I even stitched a few lengths on it today! And I'm hoping to get a t-shirt prepped to stitch Dragon Dreams' April Fool's Jester Dragon freebie on, too.
