My latest square was just received for the Fair and Square Exchange #14, so it’s okay now to post them here.
This was for Lynda. She mentions on her blog that I must have speedy needles, I stitched this so fast. lol, thank you for the compliment, but every morning I get up and remove the moss from them instead. I am a slow stitcher; that little 55×55 square took 4 days. What I am, instead, is paranoid that I’m going to miss a deadline. So each time one of these new rounds start, I drop everything else and immediate start looking for a pattern based on your likes and dislikes, then I cut my cloth and go to work.
This pattern was actually pretty fun. I cobbled it together from a larger sampler out of the Reader’s Digest Big Book of Cross-Stitch Designs.
I also received an exchange today, but I can’t get a picture of it yet. My husband’s camera is a professional photographer’s camera with, quite literally, a million buttons, dials and knobs all over it. I thought digital camera’s were supposed to be easy! I’ve just spent twenty minutes trying first to get to the right screen to even take a picture, and then trying desperately to put it back on whatever setting DH had left so he wouldn’t know I’d been ‘playing’ with his ‘baby’.
I’ll get a picture taken tonight when he gets home and I’ll post it as soon as I can.
I am deep into my coursework now. It’s taking a little longer than I thought now because I’m making myself retype all the reports I’ve already done. I don’t think I need to be this anal about it, but sadly the heavy yoke of my newfound Type A personality is firmly upon my shoulders.
You know, that’s almost depressing. I have just decided. Today is going to be a break day! My sister set up the Playstation yesterday. By golly, I’m going to go play a game!
