Marking time...

So... you know I have this "thing" about working on multiple projects at the same time. It just makes me a little crazy, you know? I don't like having that many things pulling on my attention at once. I'm a focus on the problem, fix it, move on to the next problem kind of gal.

So I've finished little ghost girl. And I know I *should* be getting my Stitcher's Escapes packet soon. I don't want to start anything big because I will need to do my pre-cruise stitching on that. And, of course, the project that is really calling my name is Cirque des Carreaux by Ink Circles. Not exactly a small project.

What to do, what to do?

So I wasted a few days fiddle-farting around on some hardanger cutwork. I've been meaning to try it for some time, knowing I probably had the ability, but not so sure about the guts. But I did it.


I know that red is not traditional. And yeah, it would have looked a lot better in white. But I had size 8 and size 5 on hand in red so, red it was. In fact, if you look closely, you will see that it is actually two different shades of red. Yeah. Real professional work here. But I started this knowing it wasn't going to be a go out and spend money on me kind of project. I am not even going to bother trying to frame it myself. I think I'll just leave it pinned to one of my tack boards.


In case I ever want to do some cut work for real. :)

But my packet still isn't here. And far be it from me to, you know, not stitch for more than 12 hours. So I've started my christmas ornaments.

For reals.

In July.

That has to be a first.

I find myself wondering what ever will I be doing at 11:56 on christmas eve if I'm not rushing to get these done? I hope I don't get used to this. :p

  • Nine months...

    So it's been about 9 months since I last posted anything. Things have been... well, you've been alive too, so you know what they've been. Thirteen…

  • It's already May!?!?

    Okay, so a lot has been going on. More than I have the energy to really get into at the moment (or maybe even ever) so I'm not going to bother even…

  • Christmas!

    Apparently I never got around to posting this year's Christmas ornaments. I blame this deadly funk I've had. I almost never get sick but when I do,…
