I've Been Bad

No updates. No photos. No news. 

I'm here out of guilt. 

Because today I was going to post about my Stitching for Autism kit that I ordered at the end of February and received in March. Because it's National Autism Awareness Day. 


I'm so bad. 

You'll have to forgive. 

We've got company staying with us this week. We've been time traveling to the 1980s. Pre-children. Sometimes pre-marriage. Pretty funny stuff.

And we've got tickets to the Red Sox vs. Nationals exhibition game tomorrow so who knows if I'll get a chance to post here tomorrow. 

I've been diligently trying to finish my March stitching on my Kimono. Only two areas to go. I made a slight mistake on section 24 and had to rip most of it out. Been stitching to Season 1 of Bones and sometimes I get a little sidetracked. And distracted. The show is nothing like the books, at least not what I remember of the early ones. But it's still enjoyable. 

Otherwise I've done a little bit of stitching on my Garden Gate Quaker. I'm getting ready to make a big push on this one and start stitching some more words. Everything is graphed out and ready to go. 

And I received my finishing kit today for my Amy Mitten class. This is some serious stuff. I wish I was further along on that stitching, but wishing doesn't fill holes with silk thread.

Ah, as they say, "Life is what happens while you're making other plans". Relish your visitors and stitch tomorrow (or next week--the stitching will be there, the guests may be long gone).

Always enjoy your stitching adventures.

Ha, ha!

Actually, I don't usually wish that I had more stitching done, because I try very hard to avoid any kind of self-imposed deadlines.

My wish is often along the lines of "I wish my canvas had seam taped sewn around the edges, and, if appropriate, had the outline traced on it, and was mounted on stretcher bars with tacks, so that I can start stitching on yet another project"

Don't feel guilty, Donna--Life has a way of getting in the way sometimes. Just root like crazy for the Sox and all will be forgiven!
