I’ve decided to answer an archival Stitching Meme, because it’s relevant for the first time today …
“Do you have a case of startitis?What projects are you dying to start? Which would you start today if you “allowed” yourself?”
Um, the answer is well and truly “yes” … today I received my latest Mystery Bits from SB&B, and they included threads for three projects that are very high on my “wanna start it now” wishlist – both the Golden Garden Sweet Bag and Never Enough Berries by Forget-Me-Knots in Stitches, and the Summer at the Ocean needleroll by Jeannette Douglas Designs … I am seriously itching to start the sweet bag and the needleroll BIG TIME! I’ve had to keep putting them to one side until I had all the threads, but now I’ve got everything for the needleroll, and just missing 2 Soie d’Alger silks for the sweet bag … I can barely contain my excitement!! 😀 I also just need one Waterlilies silk for the berries set, but I don’t have all the fabric for that one, so a slightly longer wait … but I have plenty to keep me out of trouble in the meantime haha. The needleroll will get started during the next SAL … and I might just have to find a spot for the sweet bag in my rotation … 😉 Mind you, it’s quite a ‘varied’ chart and the FMNIS charts are never that easy to follow, so it may become an ongoing project and push my rotation a bit out the window … time will tell … 😉
Today I’m feeling very jaded, and my eyes are like little slits at only 3pm – I came off a 6pm finish last night, onto a 5am start today, and I never sleep that well doing that – after the previous bad sleep due to the rugby, it’s definitely caught up with me. I’ve just put a load of washing in the machine, and trying to keep active to keep me awake … in a short while I’ll sit down and try to stitch some more on the NASCARs piece, but I think I’ll be in bed at about 6pm tonight as it’s a 5am start again tomorrow yuk!
