Must . . .fight . . .urge

I am sitting here, trying to fight the urge to start JAR Christmas Memories. I can not start another project. Absolutely not. But it's so hard when I've a beautiful piece of cream lugana shot through with gold to work on. It's DELICIOUS fabric. I am a little taken aback because it's over-1 and it's not a small project. But I'm good at over-1 now.

I started reading Sleepy Hollow yesterday. I think it changes my picture of Ichabod Crane. I always imagined him as an awkward person, but he wasn't, at least not according to how I read it. He was more like Jerry Seinfeld in breeches, maybe not the best comparison, but he is portrayed as more like an average guy with a lot of charm, who fancied himself as more than he was. Interesting. I am trying to read it critically like I did in college, I'm rusty at that. It's not as easy as it was back then.

I don't think I had blogged about this, but I have been looking for Sheepish Designs' Betsy for a month or so now. I couldn't find it anywhere. Til I looked at Silver Needle. Surprisingly, they had a copy of it. I ordered it, it came. It has the conversion for DMC, and it's stitched on a yellow fabric, which I have from my efforts to find fabric for the autumn sampler--I bought a lot of fabric for that one sampler that didn't work too well, remind me not to move too far from an LNS.

Thankfully there are no urges for me lately. I do know that feeling though :o)

Oh come on, Rachel, start another project! Don't fight the urge! (Coming from someone who has recently become addicted to starting new projects.) *mwah hahahahahaha*

I haven't had time lately to read or post much to blogs/boards but I'm catching up now. Haven't even picked up a needle in weeks. Ugh!

Glad to see you're doing well. I've missed reading your blog. I love your posts and you crack me up so many times.

Take care!

I've come to the conclusion that fighting the urge to start new projects is actually hazardous to your health, and can eventually affect your stitching mojo. So now I just give in when I feel the urge.

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
