Not much happening

I am taking a break from the lions for a few days. I've been working on my longtime Fall Cat Sampler UFO. I actually managed to finish the pumpkin Tuesday while we were watching Deadliest Catch, which, besides Ghost Hunters, is one of my most favorite shows. It's taken me three years to finish stitching that flippin' pumpkin. I almost happy danced around the room, but it was late and I didn't want to get keyed up at 9:45 so I could actually sleep. Plus, SO kinda looks at me funny when I Snoopy-style happy dance for reasons only a cross stitcher would understand.

I guess I do look kinda funny.

I would laugh at me.

I have decided that, when I get my two large projects finished and am ready for the fair, I will stitch some small stuff. Most everything I've worked on this year so far has been big. I don't have a lot of finishes because of it. Probably My Kitty has been the smallest thing, other than the ornament for an exchange, that I've done. That is unusual for me. But I intend to remedy that, just must get these big projects out of the way.

I'd love to see a video of you doing your happy dance! Congrats on a finish. Feels good, huh?

Thank you for visiting my blog! I love comments. By the way I feel like you do about big projects. I have three big projects started and one small one. If you would have seen me a month ago I would have only had one project started. I used to believe that I should only have one project started at a time. But then I turned a little crazy and I now have FOUR things started, Im getting a little bit of anxiety. :)

Congrats on finishing the pumpkin! That is great news! I would need a break from big things bad if I were you!

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
