Things to Do

I am notorious for making lists of things to do that are totally unrealistic. For example, I decided that I would get all of my household chores done this evening. Never in my mind did I consider the fact that I have a 5 1/2 month old son; consequently, a never ending pile of laundry, dishes, dogs, and toes in desperate need of painting. I chose to bathe my son instead and call it a night.
I also had posting my pictures of works in progress on the list. I should confess that with the exception of 4, all of my works are "in progress".
I have a gift for not having a clue as what to do with my stitching once I am done. For example, I have this lovely Hello Kitty that I stitched from Cross Stitch Card Shop magazine. She is on a small square of fabric that I can't really match to anything. Maybe I will make a key chain. Maybe I will add finding a purpose for it to my list of things to do.

The only true project I completed is this biscornu. It was my first attempt. I am quite proud of it because its the first project I actually completed. The others are a hodgepodge of items I think I will make into ornaments for my family. I have a few other items I need to post, but in the grand tradition of procrastination, I am going to call it a night. Cupcake dreams.

Hi Joy! I LOVE your blog! I'm inspired by your entries here. What a gift you've been given with your son (He's SOOOOO cute!!) and with your "new perspective" I think you're going to make a big difference in people's lives. Hang in there! (Love your biscornu!!)
