I, the poster child for Stitcher's ADD, have worked on only one project for over a week. I have not even pulled out another project to look at, much less put a needle into.
Mary Atwood has had all of my heart and soul and stitching time.
Here she is, after a week's worth of stitching:
I had started Band 9 last night when it became obvious I could no longer focus on 40 count. Normally, I would pull out something else with a lower count to fiddle with, but I am so taken with Mary, I looked over the directions for future bands instead.
It may be the soft colors. It may be working in double running, which I like to do. It may have something to do with fairly short bands, so there's frequently something new to stitch. Whatever it is, I am just a wee bit obsessed.
I need to add some reason and perspective. I have a couple of online classes that will start soon, one at the end of this week, the other at the beginning of next. I have a couple of "obligation" projects to stitch and their deadlines are fast approaching. I leave for Jeannine's Gathering of Embroiderers next week, and I should be getting my things together to take for that. (And of course, Mary is going to go with me. You had to ask?)
But today, I'm going to work on Mary.
