The last two smalls that accompany the Elizabethan Etui are done, assembled, finished, and completed.
The spine on the needle book has a very cool woven ribbon spine and that's a technique I will use again.
So I get to add this project to this year's finished list and file away the leftover threads and instructions.
Do you keep a record of what you stitch? I list the pieces that I complete each year. At one point, I wrote down every project I started and/or bought, then entered the date each was completed. That got to be way too depressing, since the list was ever growing and it seemed to have very few dates of completion. I finally decided to accept that I suffer from both SABLE (stash acquisition beyond life expectancy) and SINS (stuff I'll never stitch--although I always plan to).
I did make a list of things I'd like to finish during the month of August, then projects I'd like to complete by the end of the year. However, I'm not sharing either list. It seems that the minute I list something I want to have done on the blog, it's almost as if it's already completed and I don't have to think about it any longer. Therefore I will keep my little piece of paper in the basket by the chair and see if what's on it gets done.
I would pick Ann Scutt up for a couple of hours of attention tonight, but I have a feeling I'll be in bed early. I got sucked into a book last night and turned out the light somewhere around 2 a.m. when the book hit me in the nose. Then I woke up at 7:30 this morning and no matter how I twisted or turned or punched pillows or consciously relaxed body parts, I could not get back to sleep. So I got up and I've been up ever since. It's starting to tell on me, so I think I'm going to crash and burn soon.
