Still slogging away

I have about 4 and a half more squares to nunstitch around. Blah. Blah.

I work a funky schedule the next few days. I work til 8 due to my part time job. I can maybe stitch at the theatre, if we're not busy, but one of our shows got a good review from the Post, and we've been swamped with ticket requests. Great for the theatre, not so grand for me. But I am serious, I will not stitch on this afghan this weekend. Particularly if it's 98 tomorrow like they have been saying it will be. I love summer, but I don't like having masses of fabric on me when it's warm. And an afghan is all about masses of fabric.

Since my obligation stitching really ends when this is finished, I am going to make a list of things I want to finish this year, and work to get through that list. High on it is SO's geisha (remember her?). She was supposed to be his Christmas present, but I found her the other day, as yet unfinished. I think she'll take a month to finish. A month is doable considering I've been working on her for 9 years, LOL. And that Fall Cat Sampler from Sisters and Best Friends. That is definitely getting finished this year. And there are several other small projects I want to get done. As well as getting some ornaments finished. The Charlie Brown pet tree looked a little bare this year, a shame considering all the unfinished ornaments I have been finding. It just takes time, ribbon, and stuffing. That's all I'm saying.

I really do have a feeling of accomplishment when I finish these UFOs and WIPs, more so than any other projects. I would say I should let more of my projects mellow, but there are some in my pile that I am just intimidated by, like the Summer Ball from Cross Stitch Collection. I need to work on it; I haven't even touched it in almost two years, not since CATS. oooopsss. Maybe getting some of these other projects finished will give me time to get that one worked on.

I'm with you on the masses of fabric during summer. When are you gonna show pics?

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
