Day 13 & 14

I ended up chatting to my flatmate until almost 11pm last night, and felt too tired to start stitching at that point, so alas I didn’t complete my Day 13 challenge of a new start – I’ve got my substitute project all picked out, though, and ready to start tonight … I figure I’ll just start two different projects on Sunday and that’ll be OK for me to meet the challenge deadline of 15 projects in 15 days πŸ˜€

And I also have on my personal list of challenges this year a Schwalmwork or Hardanger project to be completed, so I’m thinking perhaps I should include one of those items into my final selection for the 15 Project Challenge, thereby offering great time management and hitting two birds with one stone! πŸ˜‰

If I do decide to do that, then one of these projects may be my final project choice (unless I manage to pull my finger out on Saturday and sort out my fabric and threads for My Treasures Workstation of course … or choose Eiffel Quaker, which I’m very very tempted by!!!):

GCC Beginner's Hardanger

Anyway I just heard my flatmate walk in the door, so it’s time to hit the lounge for a DVD movie and some stitching! Β I won’t update again tonight with any progress, so I’ll do a post tomorrow with my final 3 project starts πŸ˜€

(PS: Β I had an informal follow-on chat to my boss this morning about the environment in the office – she is one of the very few people who don’t play the political card and is very trustworthy, I respect her a great deal – and we worked on some suggested strategies on how to handle the moaners, so we’ll see how that all goes … it helped me feel a bit more positive about it all though, so time will tell …)

In the meantime I MUST start organising a stitching day with my NSW pals (you know who you are!!) ‘cos that’ll help me to get my work-life-balance back again … they always cheer me up, and what’s better than a healthy dose of stitchy company?? πŸ˜€

  1. I’m glad you were able to talk to someone at work. I hope the situation improves.

    I like both of the projects you’ve chosen.

  2. Good luck with the work situation. Glad to hear you and your flat mate are chatting and getting along well. I seem to remember there was a bit of friction awhile back?

    Those projects you pictured are stunning. πŸ™‚

  3. Glad you have some strategies for work. I am also blessed with a good manager who always has helpful suggestions for dealing with less than helpful coworkers.

    Good for you on stretching yourself to do schwalm or hardanger. I have that schwalm piece, and I know Rae Iverson has wonderful instructions in her kits (I’ve taken quite a few classes with her), so I vote for that one. (Are we voting? LOL!) Plus, it’s smaller…more instant gratification! =)

  4. Glad you were able to talk to a work colleague! Hope you get a positive outcome! I’m definitely up for a get together, it’s been way too long! Any day is fine for me except the 18th. I’m on holidays until the 30th :)Oh and if we are voting on your project choices, I vote for the hardanger project cause it looks purple in your pic, lol!

  5. I did the Marion Scoular Beginner’s Hardanger GCC a few years back. It really did stitch up fast, and it is one of the few GCCs that I have actually finished. I did it in purple, and had it framed in a silver frame with purple and silver mats. Love that one…so that’s my vote πŸ™‚
