About three and a half minutes into my whole "just go with the flow" needlework plan, I think I've come up with a new one.  The only problem I have is that it involves going upstairs to the studio, and this is not something that is remotely possible when one is canoodled under three blankets with a fuzzy puppy. 

I'm toasty, kids, and I don't feel like changing that at the moment.

So stay tuned to see what nutball configuration emerges from this afternoon's activity.  I don't think it's going to be anything Earth shattering, but maybe it will get me out of the one-at-a-time mode I've been in for the last several months.  Methinks it's time to get some counted canvas work, cross stitch, Christmas ornaments, and WIP's back into rotation.

Woo Hoo!


  1. Can't wait to see!
    IMHO you can't have too many going at one time!

  3. Hi Coni--
    After reading about rotating WIPs, I finally decided to join the band. My approach is to label 'easy' areas (those with repetitive stitching that need little compensation or those that involve stitching with light threads) and save them for times when I'm more easily frustrated or lacking in concentration abilities.
    That frees me to stitch challenging parts in good light when I'm well rested, and keeps me progressing on multiple canvasses.....
    I'm looking forward to reading your approach to see if mine needs 'adjustment'!
    Stay warm--

  4. Sometimes I come up with the best ideas but have to wait because I too am under several blankets with my 4 legged fur BOSS very comfortable on my lap. My advice though is to write the idea down, because I don't know about you, but I tend to forget my brillance when it's OK to move out of the chair. LOL
