Laborious Labor Day Weekend

It's been one long week. Did everyone have a nice Labor Day Weekend? I mostly remember all the wonderful sleeping I did, but somehow within my slumber, I got an incredible amount done. On the crafty side of things, I finished the embroidery on the quilt tag for my quilting group.I apologize for the smudged image, I thought it might be best to blur the names of the other quilt group members, just in case they don't want their names lurking on the Internet.
Just finished embroidering the quilt tag...
Another craft related announcement that just arrived in my email box is that I am going to be part of Felt Club this year! I couldn't be more excited! I have lots of plans for new crafts relating to the things that are inspiring me the most these days: libraries, bicycles, and music.
Other great things to note of this weekend include running the Nike human race, and actually running the entire time! This is a big one for me. I'm a super slow runner, so I thought it would take me about an hour and 45 minutes to finish, but I somehow did 6.2 miles in an hour and 23 minutes! Considering that I'm only 5'2" and run slow as molasses, this is a pretty big accomplishment. The past few months of training has also damaged my right knee somewhat severely, so I'm just glad I made it through in one piece! Other exciting Labor Day weekend accomplishments include finishing my last paper of the summer, and for the first time since I started graduate school, I did a little recreational reading!
