.... just to finish an ornament. The rush from the accomplishment is just not worth it.
But I did -- stay up until 2am to finish the sheep.
I would like to point out to those of you doing a quick comparison between yesterday's post of the sheep in progress and today's of the sheep completed and are now wondering exactly why I had to stay up until 2am to finish, I did mention I was a very slow stitcher. lol Actually I am slow, but not that bad. I didn't get home from work and work errands until after 10pm then I was so tired I just kinda sat and stared at the TV. I even failed at my usual ritual of watching Perry Mason nightly. Now that's tired! Somewhere around midnight I decided (no doubt in a sleep-deprived haze) I simply had to finish the ornament. I just had to. Ever get like that? The back of your brain tapping persistently on the front of your brain trying to point out that your eyes are mostly closed and perchance this is a bad idea. Happens to me all the time. Regardless, I finished the sheep. Woo hoo!!! That was about 1am. Then it took me til 1:20ish to get everything out of the way so I could use the bed for sleeping rather than stitching. By then I had found the Iron Chef chocolate battle and I had to watch that. Not sure how much I saw through 1/2 open eyes.
Oh, for the record, there's nothing particular about the sheep, me, Kathryn, and/or fandom I don't suppose. I think they're kinds cute and stitch them at least once a year in Christmas ornies (and get lots of them as gifts-- smile). Apparently Kathryn has a sheep-stitching habit. Between the two of us I figure there is a decent shot that a sheep is always in process in fandom (science fiction fandom, that is). Just me being nutty. Nothing new there.
Well, I'm off for more office errands and to have curry. I'll raise some fish makhanwala (?sp) in your honor.
Finished today: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman -- I've read it before. I watched the BBC series it was based on. Now I've listened to the audio. It still never ceases to amaze.
Starting tonite..... who knows! Maybe I'll actually finish up Storm Front. lol
