Patriotic Summer Progress

Patriotic Summer is moving right along. I'd like to get it done by the end of the weekend, but I don't think it's gonna happen. I still have the stack of critters on the right to do (I have finished the sheep's feet, but that's all), and the flag to do, along with putting windows in the house.

I need to say this. I don't like CC's Sassy Brass. I like every other color Crescent Colors makes, but I don't like Sassy Brass. It's not pretty. It's tolerable in small quantities, but that house is too much. Problem is, I couldn't think of another color that would have looked alright for it that's not already used in the chart. So I'm stuck with it. Maybe it will "settle down" once I have all the other things stitched. That happens quite a lot, and usually it looks alright. I may just be looking at that color with "in the moment" hatred.

I was organizing my "collection" (see, doesn't that sound more dignified, almost scholarly? You study a collection, you hide stash,hee hee) last night, and realized I need to go on the wagon, stash wise. I found two charts I didn't know I had and rebought recently. And one or two I must have picked up at GTGs. I don't understand how I can be this disorganized, when I put a lot of effort into being organized. So, since I now have more stash than I can possibly keep track of, why add more? At least for now. And I do have to say, it was fun to go through my charts last night and renew old acquaintances. I was ogling Priscilla's Babyland, a Priscilla Hillman book, and found some cute bunny charts for my Christmas tree. I found some charts I'd bought at the last CATS and forgotten about. And some charts for smalls. I could spend a year stitching my small charts. So I'm going to try to have a bit of a backbone about this, but I make no promises.

Another pretty with more sheep Rachel, I just love it!

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
