Three more boxes

of stuff gone through.

Last night, after HTB came home from work, I hunkered down on the front stoop and went through stuff. These were all boxes that came out of the trunk of the Neon when it was murdered, so they've been in there for almost two years. I call them the boxes of bad decisions past, LOL.

One box was just a box of books, some from the car, and then some other books I've tossed in there after reading. No biggie. I did pull my copy of Rhett Butler's People out. I decided I'm going to re-read Gone with the Wind, Rhett Butler's People and Scarlett just to compare the three. I never made it the whole way through Scarlett and I may not enjoy it, but Scarlett is one of my favorite literary characters, in the same vein of Vanity Fair's Becky Sharp. I don't know when I'll find time to do this, but it's the plan.

There were a lot of started projects, all of which go right into the UFO box to be completed. And of course a lot of floss. I sighed with disgust at myself for buying $97 of DMC two years ago when people were so worried DMC would go out of business. Because, in my brilliance, I bought $97 of floss from the bottom row of floss. The ones that don't get used that much, and if they do, I have tons of it. I'm not winding all that floss. I'll just leave it in the bag til I need it. I am putting my foot down.

Thank you for your kind and supportive comments about my panda progress. I do love them. I fight them, but I love them. And it's getting fun now that I can tell what things will be, LOL.

I have changed my opinion of the book the chart comes from. It really does have lovely designs. I plan on stitching more of them . . . someday. LOL. I should probably focus on getting through this one first.

I love having all that extra DMC on hand :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
