I keep promising both you and myself that I'd do a visual tour of my WIPs and UFOs. If you have a lot of projects "going" and want to be motivated (or possibly depressed) I'd suggest this adventure. It helped me think about what I had roaming around, how what was underway fit into my gift-giving plans for this year, and I even managed to get some things off my WIP/UFO list because it turned out I never started them! lol
Here's my roster:
Vierlanden Mystery Sampler
Susan Treglown springy needlepoint quilt
Mirabilia -- Halloween Fairy
Americow (kinda behind the times in picture age here, but it's what I have on line at the moment so you'll just have to deal)
Trilogy -- A Gathering of Hearts
M Designs bourse Cross Stitch Pals class 2007
M Designs purse Cross Stitch Pals class 2007
Quaker a la 6 Mains
PIF (an "antique" pic but you're not getting anything more recent right now. Tough!)
Beatrix Potter Sampler SAL -- oh yeah, there's real progress for you. lol I stitched on it one night. That's all, one night. What can I say, my beading motivation is low.
HiH -- Herbert (my office/darn-I-forgot-my-stitching-bag project .. he lives in one of my desk drawers)
needlepoint clock face-- one down (left -- completed in 2006) and one (right) SHOULD be underway (was also supposed to be done in 2006... sigh)
Just Nan -- Pearl Orchid -- the consequence of one of those I-am-tired-of-Christmas-ornies-and-I-want-to-stitch-something-pinkish moments
Blackbird Designs bouquet
M Designs -- wreath ornie
Sundance -- shawl dance needlepoint -- what can I say, Kreinik bugs me.
Susan Roberts -- Zuni bear needlepoint
Bride's Tree SAL house ornie -- Dragon Dreams -- very out of date pic
Mt. Fuji kimono -- freshly on stretchers with no stitching as yet
plum floral fan needlepoint
No pic available
Firehouse dalmnations needlepoint
No pic available
My award for recent Who Are They Kidding commercial:
Shell Oil -- commerical is something about how you keep your car's motor clean with Shell gas and now you can keep the interior of your car clean by picking up a "collectible cleaning cloth -- free with the purchase of $10's worth of gas." Now, I'll give them credit for not using the typical line -- "come in and collect all 4" (there appear to be 3-4 different colors of the "high-tech" clothes). But seriously -- "collectible" dust rags??????? rotflol Thanks Shell, I really needed the laugh!
Quote/Funny of last week's TV viewing:
One of my semi-guilty pleasures is watching MSNBC's series of prison documentaries. Last week they debuted a look into a youth facility for the most problematic kids. Ok, you get the idea, it's prison for teens-- they've killed, robbed, sold drugs, car jacked--- these are not nice little angels. One kid is listing the things he can't do, ie., whatever he wants, when he wants, with/to whoever he wants. He ends his list with "you've basically got no social life." Errr, hello, Earth to Junior, you're in p-r-i-s-o-n. <--- shaking head in stupefication. Every time I think of this I just smile.
