Hey there. And a happy Sunday unto you and yours. Ok, so I sound a little punchy. I was at work for 12 hours yesterday and I'm in the midst of hour 5 today. I'm surrounded by dust and paper and non-functional equipment. Ahh, the joy of it all. I do get my chuckles though. For instance I opened a box I was getting ready to edit catalog records on and found......
... a petrified bagel. lol No, it's not mine. I think it probably belonged to the person who was scanning the box contents for me. At least it hadn't been adorned with cream cheese before being "lost" in my file boxes.
The office joys aside, I realize I hadn't shown my "huge" progress on Trilogy's Gathering of Hearts --
Oh yeah, I'm really flying! That's what, 4 lines and 2 hearts since last we visited this pattern. What I lack in speed I make up for in loyalty!
I have actually been stitching other things, but I'm not sure I can share the RRs I've been working on. You'll just have to wait until I get clearance to share. Sorry.
I also owe some pictures of my last Vikki Clayton package. I took advantage of her hand-dyed fabric sale and got myself a package of the "naturals"--
Cool, huh? And I also picked up a couple "grab bag" spools while I was at it--
If you didn't know, she's currently got all of her existing silks on sale since she's switching to a different base silk type--- half off all silks is nothing to sneeze at!
I have a question/thoughts for you. It's actually Julie's question. In her post for today Sunday the 16th Julie asks "Does what's on TV or the music you listen to make you stitch faster?"
Initially I thought "nah." After all, if I'm even glancing at the TV then I'm not stitching. But then again I recently realized something hysterical (at least to me). You see I'm an NCIS fan. If you've hung out here, you know that. Anyway, it was just last month that I discovered that there are actually titles for the episodes that show up on the screen. Seems I'm not really "watching" so much as listening while I stitch. lol Anyway, in my life I theorize that:
1. Really good TV slows my stitching because I'm too drawn to the screen to bother with my needle.
2. Good TV (or really good TV I've seen before) speeds up my stitching because I can listen, enjoy the episode and yet concentrate on my stitching without realizing how focused I am on my stitching.
3. Bad TV (or the lawyer parts of Law and Order) slow my stitching because I have to put it down to switch channels in hopes of something more entertaining.
That's way too much thought isn't it?
Go have a great rest of your day!
BTW-- Nic is having a giveaway on her site. Check the post for Friday. ... Good luck!
