Explanation of last night's post

My computer is old and cranky. It took me 10 minutes to get those photos loaded in. I was not in the mood to keep writing after that, which stunk because I had some GOOD magazines to review. I will try to write about them tonight, after the Halloween party at Sanman board and after I get my nails fixed and done.

Anyway, the photos are of the Turkey tabletopper, which is about half-way done. I think I should make some progress on it this weekend, because I have a long day at the box office and I get time to work on it. The middle pic is of Summer Ball, by Sandy Littlejohn. I am so pathetic, because I've had this as a WIP for over a year, and it's only this far, but I did work on it at CATS and got some progress. I posted because Jennifer was looking for some info on it. It's a great pattern, I have a little story that runs through my head while I am working on it, it's just a BAP. And the third is Sleepy Hollow. I haven't had a lot of time to work on it. Last week I was thoroughly miserable, and this week I was working on the tabletopper and Mom's Christmas gift. I did, however, start the glow in the dark part. It does glow in the dark. I checked it the other night, as I was so pleased with myself. I ran out of the bathroom, and told Mom, who was, of course, less than impressed. Some people do not understand how thrilling it is to have your cross stitch project GLOW. Forget beads, metallics and all that, my project responds to the dark! Ha!

Speaoking of Mom, she saw me working on her present this morning and had to ask what it was. I told her it was a layover to catch a meddler and that I got me one, and I wasn't showing it to her. I didn't know how better to answer; I knew she was going to ask, but it's her present, she shouldn't have asked.

Isn't the GITD thread neat? I love it too :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
