So how did I prepare? I snuggled down in my chair and watched the last season of Sherlock, one show right after the other. Like a pre-reward for a job I didn't want to do. Boy, do I ever love that show. I love a program that has me thinking about it long after it's over. And Sherlock gave me things to think about as I mindlessly pushed snow around.
Mostly what I thought about was...who is hotter? Dr. Watson or Sherlock Holmes?
Or does Dr. John Watson turn you on? Not brilliant, but smart, loyal, dependable...yet with a streak of bad-boy/tough-guy that appears from time to time and that can be pretty hot. Not quite but you'd call handsome, but still attractive.
As for me, I honestly can't say. Probably Watson, because I think men like Sherlock come with too much drama. And really....who needs drama?
And Sherlock seems more like a project than a boyfriend. And the last thing I need is another project.
Speaking of projects, I've been working on an older Lizzie Kate series, Flip It Bits. I finished January a couple weeks ago, and I'm almost finished February. Just for fun, I changed a thread or two in each Bit. I used a fuzzy pink thread instead of an overdyed for the snowman's scarf and mittens. It's hard to see in the photo, but in person it looks kind of cool.
And my local stitching group has decided that we should all wear name tags, which I think is a great idea for such a large group of women, because it's much easier for new members to get to know us if they can know our names. It's so uncomfortable when you don't know all the names...So I've been working on one I've cobbled together from another design. I should finish it soon, unless blindness sets in from working over one on 30 ct. evenweave...
I'm off to a much-anticipated stitching retreat this weekend, and believe it or not, I'll be taking the SAME project I took last year. Let's hope I spend a little time stitching and a little less time talking and eating this year and then maybe I'll make have a nice progress pic to show for it.
Till next time, thanks for stopping by!
