I would love to share some stitchy pics, but we are having what can only be described as "Auntie Em" weather at the moment -- high winds, heavy rain, tornado sirens blaring away. Yikes! I suppose I had better head for the closet and grab the pups rather than blog, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
Chrissy dropped Bosco off for babysitting today while she attends the Parade of Homes in Elkhart. Her company has one of the homes that's featured, so she gets to play tour guide and show folks all of the ins and outs. I get to cuddle with my furry nephew and try to convince him that the roof isn't going to fall in from the storm. Stewey is normally the one with more delicate sensibilities and Bosco is our little Joe Pesci, so I am somewhat surprised that he is as skittish as he is today.
Today is "free" stitching for me. Last October, I started a rather half-baked attempt at a rotation, and I am trying to adhere to the rules. I pulled every single WIP that I have and wrote the title on a little card. Each Monday night I have a "drawing" whereby I select the project that I will work on that week. If I get the project done I draw a new card. If I don't get the project done, I put it back in the pile for the next week. Weekends are "free" and I can stitch anything I want, including new stuff. Since I don't do any type of "obligation" stitching or "gift" stitching, this system seems to help me work through some stash and finish some nice projects in the process. Of course, all of this completely flies out the window about every ten minutes when I decide that I want to do something completely different. So much for being disciplined. Sigh.
