I did it--I got exactly what I wanted to stitch today stitched--and I'm feeling a little better about getting all the prework done before the class!
I love how rich the colors are on this design, and can't wait to get to the big pocket panel, although I have two more smaller areas to stitch before I get to that.
Of course, I had to stay off the computer all day and have been suffering Pinterest withdrawal.
Which may indicate an unhealthy obsession with it.
Which may mean that this stitching plan is overall a good thing. We'll see how long, though, that I can withstand the temptation of pretty pictures and lovely inspiration.
