Friday Thoughts

I don't have any picture shares for this post, but wanted to touch base and share some of my wayward, random stitching thoughts. You know those thoughts that are always at the brink of our minds? Yep, those! After visiting a few blogs this morning, I have decided that I need to be a bit more conscious of what I do have in my wip basket...did I say basket? Make that baskets, bins, drawers, etc! Good Grief, I think I need help. I am a bit better at the start-itis, but still feel compelled to hurry up and finish a couple in my wip, before starting something new. But with the recent market, and subsequent new releases, boy it is difficult. That said, I am going to be posting a list soon on this blog, to keep track of what I have going, maybe that will make me a bit more mindful, about starting yet another project? Oh well, I will make a stab at it!

The other thing I really want/need to do is work on taking better pictures. I probably would benefit from the purchase of a new camera, but not in the budget to do so at this time, so just going to have to study and work with the one I have.

Trip out of town today, hoping Friday traffic isn't awful, so I can get home and spend some more time working on Mary Allen. I have spent some lovely, enjoyable time with her this week. Wasn't overly crazy with the color palette at first, but now I can see it all coming together!

Will be back with an updated pic of my progress on her this weekend. Thanks for stopping by and posting. Your comments are always appreciated so much!!

Listing WIPs on your blog is a wonderful idea, Jan. Mind if I borrow it? LOL I was getting things ready to take this weekend and found 2 things I forgot where in my pile!

Can't wait to see pics of Mary Allen! :)

If it makes you feel any better Jan - I am now occupying a whole room in my new house and 2 rooms in my old house with stash - I'm the one with the problem! Every week that goes by that I don't start something new and stick to a WIP is a good stitching week for me! LOL - have a fun weekend

Jan, I know your feeling about WIPs. It's awful isn't it? lol! I can't wait to see your progress pic of Mary Allen!

I can't wait to see your Mary Allen pics! I can relate to the feelings of 'ack!' about WIPs, etc. It's all good... and I figure we could have worse addictions! ;)

Hmmm... startitis, WIPs and too much stash! I can certainly relate to that. Looking forward to seeing Mary Allen.

Startitis - an incurable disease, I fear...I have tons of stash and WIPs, too, so I feel your pain. LOL
