well hello

I got over my embroidery swap fear and finally joined on, and got my piece done on time. Hopefully have it in the mail tomorrow. So excited. I'll post the piece once it gets to the person.

What I can show you is the sweetest knit plush I've ever made. I made it for my friend Christine's baby, Maisie, a first birthday present. I love it's face soo much. Cute, right? Free pattern here.

I changed my couch surfing setting from not hosting to maybe hosting and got five requests in about four days. Two were way too last minute for me, but I've got someone coming Monday.

The World Cup is on and that is literally all I'm thinking about. My brain is so drained from watching three games every day. It's shaping up to the best Cup since 2002. Great play, some surprising games, some gorgeous goals, and some annoyingly over-zealous refs (as per). Soo delighted with Mexico, especially after their dreadful qualifying play, and England is playing far better than I expected.

The US has been badly coached and were trying to play a German style of soccer, but we don't have the passing accuracy or confidence for that. For god's sake, just focus on speed, endurance, set pieces, and passing accuracy! Don't think about style AT ALL! Gawd. I could talk about the games all freaking day.
