Weekend Update

  • Posted on August 28, 2005 at 10:23 pm

There’s nothing much to report. We drove to southern New Jersey on Saturday afternoon to visit with Terry’s parents. We got home around 10:00 PM, watching some T.V. and went to sleep.

I did several loads of laundry today whilst model stitching for hours. There’s a lot more of that to come, as there are several parts to my current assignment and at just under 33% completeion right now, I’m think that I’m a bit behind at the moment. I have a feeling that this coming Labor Day weekend will be a marathon stitching weekend. With any luck, I can complete another 33% of the project. Completion of all parts is too much to hope for, even in an extended weekend. I’d be hurting after a true marathon stitch like that!

As usual, I can’t share my progress with you. Sorry! Someday I’ll be able to post pictures, but in the meantime, you’ll have to be complacent with my vague updates. LOL.

I have to chuckle to myself at the recent posts on other stitcher’s blogs about trying to get back to a rotation. I’ve truly given up on that for the rest of the year, I believe. It’s pretty much emergency and deadline stitching at this point, with the model project taking priority, then a small baby sampler due at the end of September (which I don’t have a prayer of finishing in time). After that, it will be the Christmas Ornament exchange from the Stitching Bloggers Exchanges board. And then two gifts for Christmas time. Plus I’ll have to finish all of the ornaments I’ve stitched this year into a giftable form. That will be a marathon finishing weekend. 😉

So, yeah, any sort of rotation or stitching for myself is completely out of the window until 2006. It’s already been a couple of months since I’ve finished stitching anything for myself anyway, so I’m used to it by now! This seems to be how every fall progresses for me since I’ve gotten back into hard core stitching. 🙄
