Hi there. My name's Ruth and I'm a startaholic. Need proof (really, if you've been here before you shouldn't lol)
My latest in-the-door aquistion is freshly under needles.....
I "finalized" the color selection on my Tree of Stitches (designed by Abi of the yahoo group, Stitch Specialists, and she's marvelous. You've probably seen a number of these trees sprinkled around blogland. I think I personally may create a small grove of them because I want to do them in all sorts of colors.). I narrowed it from this:
And I started stitching.......
The color adjustments started with the purple. I decided it needed something to set the corners of the rice stitch off, so they became Kreinik braid in a matching purple. (At the same time two other Krienik braids had to join other pending parts of the tree --- you wouldn't want it to be unbalanced would you?)
I've even made more progress on my BBD Summer --
Actually last night I made it over to the dove and got that started. Of course when I got to him I had to change color from the Belle Soie I'd picked. Sigh. Can't I leave well enough alone?
Two new starts. That should be enough for a person, right? Oh noooooo. I've joined Pumpkin Patch & Co.'s breast cancer fundraising/ornament stitching blog. It's a community of us obsessive stitching bloggers working on donations for The Attic's annual ornament silent auction. A great cause! No doubt about it -- but also a thinly-veiled excuse to START some new stitching. hee heee Ornament patterns, here I come. Come on, you know you want to do it! Stitch and happily tell your family and friends that you *had* to start a new piece because it's for breast cancer research!
Should I seek counseling about my startitis? Should I be cured? Do I really *need* to be cured? I doubt I *want* to be cured, but...
I guess, ultimately, the real question of the day is why can't I ever catch FINISHitis??????
