I did not realize that he was going to assume responsibility for making sure I did what I had written on the slips of paper.
For Pineapple Perfection, I had written, "Finish embroidery for Pineapple Perfection and put the set together."
Well, I got it embroidered but I wasn't feeling the love for finish-finishing because I never feel the love for finish-finishing. I was thinking I could just mark out the first part of the order and put the slip back in the bag.
Oh, no, this would not do. Dearly Beloved was adamant that I should do everything on the slip before I pulled another one. And, he was right. The whole reason for this was to get some things finished, done, completed, and out of the workbasket.
So this is the result:
And I am very happy with the whole thing.
As always, the finish-finishing took much longer than I had anticipated. And the whole time, my stitcher's ADD was screaming for some alternatives when I just didn't feel like sewing bits and pieces together.
So I made a deal with
the devil Dearly Beloved. This time I could pull out four slips. And as soon as I finish something on one of the slips, I can pull another. And I can alternate among those four slips.
So the next projects on my to-do list are:
- assemble Cherry Berry
- finish the tent stitch sections of the Golden Accessories
- stitch and assemble Tsubaki (I have got to remember if I ever do this again to put stitching and finish-finishing on separate slips!)
- stitch a band on Hannah Thornbush (at least I had sense enough NOT to write finish Hannah Thornbush)
So, onward and upward.
