… is going to be A LOT of unfinished needlepoint!
I seem to be collecting more canvases, then finding time to actually stitch them!
This weekend, while we were visiting Meg, Mom and I snuck down to Baltimore and visited Ruth at Bedecked and Beadazzled!
Always fun, always dangerous. Particularly, since returning to work and taking care of a 4 month old, leaves me with little time to shower, to hell with finding creative time. I spent a decent amount of Monday’s commute trying to remember if I actually rinsed out my conditioner, because Maddie started to fuss as I was getting ready. By the end of the day, the answer was quite obviously NO!
My goal is to ease back into it, and start tackling some stockings/ornaments for Christmas and a few threads a day on the larger projects. Could we talk about the crazy post-partum hormones that lead me to purchase the Zecca growth chart?
Also, let’s not talk about how I picked out the ‘little boy’ First Christmas stocking instead of the ‘little girl’ one. Mentally, I was thinking that I wanted to do a teal/pink one, but I ended up picking up the little boy one and pulling all the blue threads to go with it.
When will I get my brain back?
Alright, I’m off to go get another cup of coffee and cuddle with a baby that has put her daycare through hell this week (SEND WINE!). We’ve got teething, combined with an upset tummy, combined with who knows what else. Need coffee. Need wine. Need chocolate. Need more hours in the day.
Here are the new purchases:
I hope that Maddie embraces my love of all things animal print… don’t you just love these project bags? They are a heavier plastic then some others that I’ve found- my hope being that they stand up to spills by babies or husbands and general dog destruction! Doesn’t look like Ruth has them on her website, but I’m sure you can call her if you need them (like I did!).
And, here is what I am currently in the middle of… I’m not counting any of the half-finished projects that are tucked away upstairs! Only the ones that are visible in the living room…
Happy Wednesday! Hope your week has been full of more sleep, stitching and wine then mine has been so far..
P.S. I’ll be back on Friday with Maddie’s 4 month letter- AHHH!
