This weekend I actually stitched the word “Lo”. So it’s official. And now that I’ve stitched the first two lines of the song, I can hear it in my head. Furthermore, (I’m going to get all dreamy on you here) I feel as if the energy of this project has shifted now. There’s a different energy when I start a project, when I’m in the middle of a project and when I’m close to finishing something. I like all of those feelings, but it’s invigorating when I know I’m coming into the home stretch, and I’ve hit my stride and it just feels so good. I’m grateful that Jennifer has been stitching this with me, otherwise I may have tossed it in my To Do box and it could have been there for a very long time.
I’m actually feeling pretty good about another project, too – Spring Violets. I’m working my way around the border, and as soon as I get that darn snow figured out, I’ll be golden. No pictures of that today, though.
I had a wonderful day this past Friday, when I met with Carol and Linda (no blog – yet) in Pittsburgh. We took over a corner table in a Panera Bread (by a window for good lighting) that morning and stitched and talked till well past lunch. These get-togethers are always nice for me because I don’t have any stitching friends out here in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes it feels like it’s just me and my computer screen. Not that I don’t appreciate you all out there in blog land – Just that in-person contact is so much fun!
My list for the Heartland Shop Hop is getting longer each day. I wasn’t going to check a bag for the flight – figured I could get by with only my carry on. But now that I’m looking at this list? I may need to rethink that.
