I know I am supposed to be focusing on my geisha, but I left her in my car on Monday night after I got out of the gym, and since I was too exhausted to go out and get her, I decided to start "Cats" by Val's Stuff. I've had it forever, but never started it and, when I went to look at it the last time, the buttons were broken. And, believe me, that makes me so mad--they were Mill Hill Buttons and not cheap. So I decided to finish it before it got further wrecked. Fortunately, I have buttons I can use that I bought at Michael's, so it's not a loss. I was trying to figure out how to handle the frame, because they use a Hog River frame that is really pretty on the cover, but Hog River is out of business now, so can't get the frame. But VeeandCo makes pretty frames, so I'll see if she can make me one.
I still have to order my SS's last gift for our exchange. I picked out some pretty Vikki Clayton silks for her that I hope she'll like. And I have to mail my schoolbox exchange. I hope my partner likes that. I think I took good care of her.
I am going to really try very hard to not buy new stitchy stuff. I have a really good reason. I found a place nearby that offers horseback riding lessons for a reasonable (or at least I think it's reasonable) price, and I have really really wanted to get back into riding for the last couple years. I did it when I was a kid, but I got out when it started They even offer the opportunity to purchase a share of a horse, and I always sorta felt I could really get in shape if I could just have access to a horse more than once a week. But the chance to have that requires that I cut back somewhere, and so I think I better cut back on the stitchy stuff. No more trips to the LNS, no more Ebay. At least for a few months. And I do have to admit, I've found more projects by looking through my stash the last few days than at the LNS. And since they're kitted up already or kitable, it's saving gas. LOL
