One of the things I was forced to do yesterday was iron. I started "Smoke Flower" because it was the very last project in the pile that wasn't a creased, wrinkled mess. I bet you thought I had some grand plan, some cosmically centered reason for starting the first three projects, didn't you? Something other than "I only iron for stitching emergencies." Uh huh. Right.
Anne and I seem to be on the save wavelength with this challenge. She's also been ironing like crazy and is running out of q-snaps Her comment (regarding Day 3) was so insightful, right on the mark!
"I think that's the hardest bit of the challenge for me - some pieces I don't want to stop stitching, and it kills me to put them down again and start something new the next day ... but then the next day I start feeling the same about the next project (usually anyway) ;) And isn't it crazy how the smallest things stop us from stitching a project - and how quick the task goes when we pull our fingers out and actually do that task ... I often kick myself afterwards wondering why I hadn't tackled it sooner!"Carol was wondering about the Diane bag and the number of projects housed therein. I must admit, I have shuffled so many projects in the past few days, I can't say for certain how many projects are in there. I promise to count sometime soon. I do know one thing - Diane now has an echo. It is a little spooky.
Thanks a bunch to everyone who is reading my blog and/or leaving comments! It is fun to be back.
