It all started when I decided that I would like to pull out all of my "Americana" stitching and set up festive tableau throughout Chez Spinster. Great idea, right? Well, my great idea was smacked in the forehead when I discovered that this is my entire "Americana" stitchy collection:
Holey Schmoley....how pitiful is this? One lousy little piece of stitching to celebrate the gool ol' U.S. of A. AND! If you look closely, you'll see that this piece was done on 14ct Aida cloth with all DMC threads and THEN it's shamelessly stuck into a $2 Hobby Lobby frame. Good grief! I didn't even iron it first!
I am thoroughly disgusted with myself at this moment and am hanging my head in shame. So if you will excuse me, I am going to go up into the studio to find some things that I might work on to rectify this situation once and for all.
Note to self: Yes, it would be a FABULOUS idea to stitch according to a theme each month, but a) you have to decide on the themes, b) you have to make sure that you have enough stuff to fit within the theme and then c) YOU HAVE TO ACTUALLY STITCH THE STUFF AND NOT GET ALL DISTRACTED AND ACT LIKE A 700 POUND HUMMINGBIRD!
