Accomplishments? No, not really. And an offer in honor of the season.

Apparently in honor of the onset of Spring, I am having fond thoughts of the weekend to come.  I keep thinking of all the things I "will" get done.  Why do I do this?  History teaches that me and "big plans for the weekend" do not go hand-in-hand.  Regardless, I go into this evening with positive excitement.  I keep thinking that I'll stitch for hours and clean for hours and cook for hours and read for hours-- oh and watch Formula One.  You see the problem?  There are only about 48 hours to deal with and yet I have schemes that could keep me occupied for a month.  Sigh.

The most likely candidates for the weekend's adventures include my recent stitching friends --  (and the danged heart, of course)--

Last weekend I found a played a little with Prairie Moon -- Home of the Free, Land of the Brave:

I'd gotten this far on my Workbasket Quaker until last week when it started languishing in my commuter bag -- 

Then one night this week I pulled out the By the Bay freebie that had been my commuting buddy until I pull out the Workbasket one.  And it's a good thin I did, because you see that tail of green-olive on the bottom and heading to the right?  Well it's wrong.  All wrong.
I ended up pulling it all out.  Let's hope when I start again that I can keep my counting in the forefront of my mind.

We shall see next week what calls to me this weekend.  Any bets on none of the above?  After all we know I'm fickle.  

And now, as we head into Easter, I have an offer -- I have Tempting Tangles' Creation with all the DMC.  I had bought it as a gift for a friend who had the temerity to shop for herself!  What's the world coming to if folks stash for themselves?  LOL   Anyway, if you would like to give Creation a happy home, leave me a comment on this post.  If I get multiple potential adoptive stitchers, I'll draw a name next Wednesday.


I wish you all a happy weekend -- may yours be peaceful and productive.


Last-minute, sheepish hopes for the weekend:
1.  a cleaner hovel
2.  some barley/chard soup
3.  at least 2 roses
4.  2 completed books
5.  a win for Red Bull (preferably for Mar, of course)
6.  now let's just get silly:  a completed ornie, and some headway on at least one other stitched piece that's already in progress.  Please, Lord, let me not start a new one!!!

I hadn't ever seen the Creation design - but it's lovely!

I love your "to do" list. Too much to possibly accomplish it all but just enough to keep you busy and happy. Sounds like just the right list to me!

I can identify with your 'goals' for the weekend. I find that I do the same thing. At the beginning of Friday afternoon, I sigh, and think oh the weekend is almost here... here is what I'd like to do, or need to get done....

Oh well, we can always dream, right? Your stitching is looking good!

How fun to stitch a little on several different things. That's my method! I plan to stitch the By the Bay freebie some day. I'd LOVE a chance at the gorgeous Creation chart! I clicked on the photo and clicked again to enlarge it even more and admired all the beauty!
