In true Dale fashion, somehow I have ended up with quite a few projects.
I haven't cross-stitched in years, and I have several unfinished pieces sitting in totes waiting for some "time" to complete them. Do I dig those out? Not on your life! Instead I buy new canvas and bump up my floss stash and start a brand new piece; Norman Rockwell's "The Doctor and the Doll". I bought the pattern quite a few years ago, and sort of stumbled upon it before Christmas.
In the meantime, I decided I should perhaps get to some of those forgot places in my house... perhaps to clean?
File cabinets, came first - and there are still papers lying about that I really don't know what I should do - if anything.
My craft room closet - now there's a project and a half... I was afraid if I climbed up there, I would never be seen again - but it wasn't overly bad - quite organized actually, and I escaped completely unharmed.
But that little escapade led to yet another project... I unearthed several large boxes of photos. I have thousands of photos, from every one's lives, including my own - and there they sit in boxes. So I decided to sort and separate and organize, and while I was doing that I decided it was time so start returning photos to the givers, or their families. So now I have several large envelopes of photos to get ready to mail away. I hope the recipient's will be happy to receive them, and not think I am shooing them out of my life - nothing could be further from my mind, but there comes a time when this needs to be done.
Now it's time for a break, I see the sun is shining on my chair - I think I'll grab the canvas and take advantage of the natural light and do some stitching - unless of course the sun lures me to sleep - which is always quite possible...
