The almost true exploits of an intrepid spinster and her stitching...and all of the things that make up her crazy, happy, quiet little life.
>>Why do I always sit down with a piece and think "Oh, I'll have this one done by the weekend, surely"? <<Been there, said that -- at least a hundred times. That's why I have so many stitching UFO's and WIP's. Lynn in southern NJ
Hey, that's my line, LOL! I think every stitcher thinks like that, Coni...we are just a n optimistic lot...or delusional, LOL!Loving the WIP though...not matter how long it takes you to finish it, it is going to be lovely!
....you never explicitly mentioned WHICH weekend, did you? So you're off the hook! ha,ha! But, no matter, "L'Hiver" looks beautiful.
The triumph of hope over experience?
Go for it Coni !!! lol I say the same thing with every project I start....
Coni: I am sure 99.9% of us have been in the same boat as you aer, I have a project I started way back in 1999 and still donot have it finished, maybe and I mean maybe it will get done in maybe 2015.Stewy you need to learn to stitch so you can help Mom.BlessingsCatherinediamondc
There is always that chance your prediction will come true, keep trying.
I actually OWN this! AND the other three seasons! AND I've done two of them - but not this one (I did summer and spring and started fall and then some kid at the pool dripped water all over it and it ran and I quit.....) Aren't they gorgeous? But they DO take a lot longer than you think.
You say that because you are a stitcher. Don`t we all have delusions of grandeur? *wink*Looks great so far. Kisses to Stewey and Bosco...
Seeing your progress pictures of L'Hiver makes me want to pull out mine. I think I started in the opposite corner of where you did, so maybe we could meet halfway and then call it finis?
you are such a fast stitcher, Coni, I can't even imagine that...and how old would I be in that year...hmm!
I do the same thing! I always always underestimate how much time it's going to take to stitch something by about 5000%. L'Hiver looks beautiful though.
