A little bit lost

Now that M'Deer is done, I don't know what to do. I was planning on starting Nature's Home, but I don't have all the fabric, and I don't want to start anything til I make sure I have three yards of it. And I am not totally convinced that I like the Driftwood aida. It's grey, it didn't appear that grey on the website, so I don't know. I may just wait another month, buy three more yards of rustico and start then. It's not like I am hurting for choice of projects. I should really work on Hummingbird Trellis, since, almost three years into it, I have two and a half squares done. This does not bode well for getting it done. Or I could do Summer Ball. That is such a beautiful piece and I have a good bit of it done. Or I could just do small pieces for right now. I don't know . . .

OHHH, I got this month's Secret Needle Night. It is tres cute. They have had two good months in August and September. July and June kinda stunk, but the little mermaid last month and this month's little witch hats are sweet! What I really need to do is go through my kits and decide which ones I want and which I want to sell, because in two years, I've stitched all of two of them. But they aren't a quick stitch, they take me about a week and a half to do, which if I did every one, I would just be stitching Secret Needle Night kits and I am not THAT into them. My problem is, I'm not sure how to finish them off if I were to do them, and there's no place to hang them if they were finished. They might be cute as pillows, but three dogs and three cats would be kinda hard on a pillows. But this is cute. I figure I can finish it and then figure out what to do.
I also got 4 magazines tonight, US Cross Stitcher and Cross Stitch and Needlework and UK Cross Stitch Crazy and Cross Stitch Collection. I haven't had a chance to look through them yet. But Cross Stitch Crazy has an AOY cover kit that is really sweet!

I know how you feel. It's weird when you finish a project because you feel so lost, even though you have a TON of patterns in your stash ;o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
