Sure I've been stitching....

.. It's like I'm a girl obsessed. Not holding a needle? Well than I'm not happy. I must admit my progress has slowed with the absence of the Olympics-- afterall, I didn't have to keep changing channels in hopes of findign something entertaining. I never really realized how much time channel changing took up. Sheesh.

Anyway, my biggest problem of late is trying to decide which project to pick up. I want to stitch all of them at once. That neevr happens to me. Never! Usually there's one (not the one I'm supposed to be working on) that calls frantically to me. But these dys if it involves a needle then I want to work on it. I wonder if this is something I should wish will continue? Could be bad for all other aspects of life. Lord knows it's been really detrimental for those towels that are waiting for me to fold them and put them away. The laundry basket even fell over last night and all I did was shovel the towels back in and balance it back on the pile so I could get back to stitching. Bad girl. Bad girl!

Anyway, with all that stitching I should have much to show, and I do! But have I been uploading photos? Oh no. That would be too handy. At least this affords me the oportunity to work with some of the backlog of stuff I kept meaning to getting around to showing you.

We had out big, annual sale at my needlepoint shop and yours truly did her part. First, the frame collection--
From the Ewe and Eye frame collection-- I figure they will be perfect for some samplers:

Some really cool tea cups with canvases:

A canvas of the Point Loma lighthouse (a personal fav of mine):

And my pieces from the TNNA show this year have started arriving--
First, my find of the show--a shell that your piece gets inserted into. Way cool, trust me--

Some ornies:

And think, this is the tip of the catch-up iceberg.

I should run. I have friends that want dining experiences, and frankly my brain is 35% engaged in noodling out a work problem. I'm the go-to girl for weird questions.... today's: calculating the economic and potential fiscal impact of over-freeway construction of varying types on both the construction site and on surrounding properties. Sure, I'll just find oodles already done on that. Uh huh.

A happy and productive stitching to you all! And to all a good night.

Love it all! I have the same feeling -- what to work on next. It's tough, right? But I love it! lol!

Myra said...

I am with you on the channel surfing time waster. It really eats into the stitching time. :o) Love the frames, especially the whimsical ones.

Kathryn said...

Nice stash! Love the frames. But, of course, I am loving the penguin best. Not much of a bird person, but cute penguins? I am putty in their flippers.

Don't channel switch, watch DVDs! In the middle of NCIS Season 3 myself.

Courtney said...

oh man, PLEASE tell me where I can get those angels, especially the first one - they're so cute!!

Donna said...

Love the canvases. And can't wait to see what happens with the shell.

Carolyn NC said...

Great frames and stash!

Brigitte said...

Yes, you are so right. Switching channels in order to find something entertaining takes a lot of time off your stitching because you can't stitch when you have to concentrate on your remote, lol. That's why I usually watch DVDs.
Great new frames and new stash!

Mylene said...

t heard about your address yet.

Siobhan said...

Wow!! I love those frames. Great haul!

Kathy A. said...
