I was stitching along on this the other day...

found in 2010 JCS Ornie Mag
and as I started stitching the vine I realized that the pretty, swirly red thing on the bottom should start inside the 'J' of joy. UGG!!! Since the vine connects to the red swirly thing on the bottom I had to stop where I was and get ready to redo the bottom. 'No problem,' I thought, 'this will be quick and easy!! I will just finish this up on Wednesday and then blog about it later in the day.' - I have no idea if that was my actual thoughts, I'm just making things up as I go;)
I only had to be in town for a little while yesterday, take dd to the zoo, quick stop at the post office and library, then to the gym and pick up some fabric at Hobby Lobby before getting dd again and heading home. I would have had the whole afternoon to stitch and finish this up. But my morning didn't go so smoothly. I did get to the post office and then to the library, but then I fell going down the last step at the library and hurt my ankle (AGAIN!!). (side note for new readers: I apparently have weak ankles. I hurt them ALL. THE. TIME. Usually it is my left ankle as it was this time, and usually I just sprain it like I did this time. But last year, two days before Christmas 2012 I finally managed to break my right ankle.)
So I spent the rest of the morning/early afternoon picking dd up early and going to the dr. Thankfully it is just sprained and will heal quicker than if I had broken it. And I'm super thankful that it is my left ankle so I can still drive or I would have been stranded in town!!!
Once I got home I prepared dd's schoolwork and took a nap and never did get back to stitching on this!! So this month's Smalls SAL was a fail, but at least I did work on one and I should be able to fix it and get it finished really quick:)
