Another Month Goes By

It's been a busy month for the Stitching Sisters. Linda's back to Nana day care, enjoying her time with Jake but missing her freedom a bit. I have been absolutely crazed at work, and am busy at home on the political front as well, working on my candidates' campaigns for local offices. This keeps me out at night a lot, truly interfering with stitching time.

Notwithstanding life's demands, I've gotten a bit of stitching done. I am working on a large piece for which I have a Tony M stitch guide. It has a lot of my not so favorite stitch, the packed outline, so I find myself actually watching the TV, rather than just listening, just to avoid that stitch. I put it aside for a while, to do some prep work on a canvas that Linda & I will surprise you with, hopefully later this month. I did manage to finish up this little canvas shown above, which is the next in the series from A Stitch in Time. I am quite impressed with my ability to keep up with this club; there are 5 more canvases left.

This week, in between my meetings, I have a class with Tony M again at Stitch by Stitch. We are finally getting back to our African Teapot class. We've had to cancel this class twice already, because of inclement weather & illness. Hope all goes well for this week.

I am feeling a little stressed by the weight of all these canvases that I've started but haven't finished. I am not good having so may unfinished projects at one time. I really do want to finish these, and I have no problem disposing of a project I am not interested in any more. However, I find that as I advance and refine my stitching, though, I am less inclined to dispose of a canvas that I've started.

I guess there could be worse things than having too much stitching. On the bright side, I always have something to look forward to!

Have a good week!

I'm quite impressed with the way you are keeping up with the series. A beautiful finish. Life does get in the way of stitching, but like you said, it gives us something to look forward to. Like reading the Stitching Sisters blog. Can't wait to see more!
