It's been a hectic morning here in Crazyville. We dropped off my car to have the bumper replaced and picked up my rental car. A Nissan Cube. It feels so small and high compared to my Vibe, but it's not a bad car. But I want my car back, nice and fixed.
I have been promising pictures of my works.
Here is the finished Fatty SAL. The orange did end up melding nicely into the other colors, when all was said and done. It's a nice piece, if I do say so myself, but then again, Sanman Designs are fantastic. Love Love Love Sandy's talent and am so grateful she GIVES these away.
Tai Shan and Mei Xiang are coming along rather nicely.
I finished all the stitching but the backstitch on the left-hand side by Wednesday, so now it's just filling in the troublesome parts on the right. I haven't been able to stitch at the theatre, since we are prepping to release the 2012 season subscriptions, but, last night, we turned on Avatar when I got home, and I stitched while we watched that. Such a good film, but I won't need to watch it for a while after this. It must be something about James Cameron movies, but I always feel like I need a recovery period--the first time I saw Titanic, I cried for a good half hour after we left the theatre, and I don't cry at movies. I didn't cry at this one, but I still want to go to that planet--if they can give us the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, can't we get Pandora? LOL.
Do you ever get overwhelmed with your UFOs or WIPs, or just stash in general. We were discussing this on one of the message boards, and someone said when she tries to organize her stash, it ends up looking like a tornado hit the room. And I can commiserate. But I realized something: stacks and piles of paper, even charts, make me jittery. My UFO/WIP bin does as well. Granted, it's full to overflowing, and so going through the room without knocking it over and having paper slide is enough to do that to a person, but I realized, I am much happier when my charts are in binders, neatly organized, than if they are in "to-do" piles, or in totes. It's a wierdness. Does anyone else have this?
