I didn’t get to sleep until after 3am this morning, thanks to my mind tossing and turning with the work situation – I’m just so tired with dealing with the petty and power-hungry nature of some of the people I work with, that I think it’s time to start looking elsewhere … a job that I used to love is becoming an arduous one thanks to the political minefield that our department has become, and I don’t want to lose the thrill I have always had working for my employer. It may be a while before I find something within the same company, but it’s definitely time to start putting feelers out and keeping an eye on what’s on the radar …
To be honest I’m feeling a bit exhausted to start a new project today, finding scroll bars or Qsnaps that will fit, measuring the centre etc … so I may just flake on today’s challenge day – partly because the remaining designs are not entirely appealing to my mood:
- Raphael’s Raspberries – this one requires me to baste a heap of grid lines prior to commencing stitching, then the first stitches are queen stitches, so not exactly an ‘easy, make your mind relax’ kind of project, so not an option
- My Treasures Workstation – I still haven’t decided on my final thread choices for this one, plus I just remembered I haven’t pulled fabric for it yet as I was waiting to choose my threads then match a fabric afterwards … as I’m feeling particularly non-creative, not a good idea tonight!
- Christmas by Prairie Moon – my fabric still hasn’t arrived in the country (the parcel was sent at the beginning of December or late November some time), which means that’s not an option whatsoever
So, now I’m a bit stuck …
I do have a few other smaller projects already kitted up, so perhaps I’ll just grab some substitutes (they’re just small freebies and charts which is why I didn’t want to include them in the first place as I didn’t think they were significant enough) and start stitching as they’re ready to go and are real no-brainers challenge-wise. Then I can stitch Raphael’s Raspberries as my final project on Saturday when I have more mental space to think about it – and I’ll continue to stitch the other two throughout the year once I haven’t all the kit contents sorted out … oh, decisions decisions, what to do … 😉
