I have learned a very important fact about myself. Apparently, it takes a level of discipline that I just don’t have to stick to a rotation. I pretty much just pick up any old thing at the beginning of the day and today, instead of that thing being Christmas Flourishes, I started something new.
Fortunately, I also finished it too, otherwise it’d be just one more thing overflowing my WIP shelf. Bad Maren. I’ve really got to stop doing this.
It’s payday again, so I ordered the floss I’d need to do the Rose Lights and (sigh), yes, I am going to do it right. With all the (hideously, thievishly, irrationally, mind-bogglingly) expensive silk floss that the pattern calls for. I haven’t got the beads, but then I always bead last of all, so I’ve got time. Years and years worth of time, if I don’t stop starting all these projects.
**Stands up in front of the crowd** “Hi, my name is Maren and I’m a project-a-holic.”
Admitting it is the first step on the long road to recovery, after all.
And since I’ve already admitting that I have a problem, I’m sure you’ll all forgive me when I confess that I paid Jo-Ann Fabrics a visit this morning, picking up the threads I need to start my BP SAL design. It’s slated for tomorrow. I’m excited enough to do it now, except that my eyes are so tired they’re crossing.
It’s either off to bed with me now, or I’m just going to nod off onto my keyboard. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz-snort! Sorry. That was me with my nose on the button.
One quick prayer to those tens of thousands of people in the midwest who are without power tonight because of the ice storms and who aren’t even estimated to get their power reconnected for another 3 to 4 weeks! God bless the linemen working 16 hour shifts, 7 days a week (bet you can’t guess what my hubby does for a living), to get the heat back on for all those currently going without. Be safe, guys. And to everyone else, be warm.
