Meaning to, meaning to, meaning to

I keep meaning to inventory all my "in progress" pieces, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I also have been meaning to get photos of my TNNA orders as they arrive, but that hasn't happened either. Sigh. Story of my life. Apparently everyone needs a hobby -- mine's meaning to.

What I have managed to do is round up some quick pics of what I have with me in process. Yeah, I only stitch at lunch for a few minutes, but a girl's gotta have a selection to choose from, right??? lol

In honor of Kathryn, I have a little sheep ornie in process --

Apparently, somewhere in fandom a sheep is always being stitched.

I also have a few stitches in on a Dragon Dreams castle ornie. It'll probably be the last of January's Bride's Tree SAL ornies. Of course the only reason it isn't done is that I had to order the grey Kreinik for the roof.... yeah, that's the only reason. Honest. Sure it is. You believe me, right?

And here's a little something I really can't explain, but I think the pretty colors deserve to say hello at least

And, as if I didn't have enough needles in action, Sandy's Society RR arrived in the mail today --

And, Sandy, dear friend, you get not speedy credit for getting that stitched over lunch. Here I thought you'd made some sort of major stitching accomplishment. lol Oh well, if it were me stitching I'd have had to frog and recount a dozen times no doubt.

I also got some fresh stash in the other day from Down Sunshine Lane. Amy got some new French patterns in and I couldn't control myself. Yeah, I know, I can never control myself.

Ah well, back to work -- Things to catalog. Mysteries to solve. Dust bunnies to slay.

At least SOMEONE is stitching a sheep. James said that if I didn't stitch a sheep in February, I would have to stop stitching altogether! Love the new tree stash, but I have to admit that the samplers scare me. It would take me a YEAR just to finish one of them. Just finished watching Neil Gaiman's Stardust, lovely movie! I enjoyed reading Neverwhen, too, but I still think American Gods is his best book.

Some nice colours in the works you are doing. Sheep? what's the significance?

Ahhhh...You got the AMAPs that I so dearly WANT! Their expensive these little ditties aren't they? But just gorgeous...I'm futile at resistance too...but I'm going to have to wait a bit more....

Thanks for visiting my blog. I've been looking at your stitching and it's beautiful. You do needlepoint also! I do needlepoint too, although I haven't picked up any in a long time ;)
