The other day when I said I was going to clean up my sewing room, I didn't. I got distracted. So today I started putting some stuff away. I decided that I have too much stuff. My ribbon box is full and I have more ribbons to put away. ARGH. What do I do? Get a bigger box? Get another box? DH would say pitch the whole lot. I can't do that. But I know that something has got to give. Cleaning up sometimes makes a bigger mess than you already have. Just pulling things out and trying to decide what to pitch is really hard. Being realistic on whether I want to stitch something is very hard too. It is easier to give a project away than to throw it away.
My goal for today is to finish the pre-stitching for Ode. I'm sick of it. I want to be done. I'm really awfully close. I just need to finish the needleroll front. I think I'll just do three more flowers and quit. Yes, quit. I'm going rogue anyway.
Then I'm going to put that bag away until the class at the end of September.
I have been looking at Amy Mitten's site multiple times a day. I need to quit that too. I have more than one Amy Mitten project to work on. I bought a sampler on ebay that I can dig out, Tudor something. I also have the Casket Keepsake Cornflower that has never been finished.
Mistress L is doing okay. I would like to finish her up too. I finished the band I was working on and started the next band. Less than ten inches to go.
At the end of the day, I just want to start something new. I also want to eat candy all day and not get fat.
