I did get some stitching done when I wasn't reading. I stuck with The Tower at Stony Wood because I didn't want to take the time to switch to another project. Here's the most recent progress picture:
Fortunately, the almost-manic state I was in seems to have passed, which is very fortunate since I had my arraignment in Truancy Court on Wednesday. Before going in I asked my God to help me do whatever I needed to in order to make everything okay. And once again she was there for me -- I ended up pleading guilty (which I was certainly not intending to do!) -- basically, she has to go to school but if she does miss a day, I have to send a note in the next day with the reason. If I do that, the case is closed and the record is expunged. I don't even have to pay a fine. Of course, I'm going to have to steel myself when she says she's not feeling well and make her go anyway.
I didn't seem to get very much done on First Flight.
I'm using a full stitch (1 over 1) on 25 count lambswool Jobelan for this one. I have again strayed from my plans and have decided to work on Tower at Stony Wood before moving on to Heaven Above. I don't know why I'm so reluctant to work on that, it is really a lovely design. I intend to have a mostly stitching weekend, so hopefully I'll have a good bit to show on Monday!
So, during this time, I've decided that working on the same project every other time is simply not going to work. I think I have stitcher's ADD -- nothing holds my attention for too long. But then that may have something to do with WIP overload and serial starteritis. I still want to get at least Heaven Above done before Thanksgiving and I have not yet given up on the idea of a focus piece, so I've decided to try this:
1. My Choice
2. My Choice
3. Heaven Above
4. Tower at Stony Wood
For slot #1 I worked on Rose Tinted. Which continues to look like a bunch of big red blobs.
For slot #2 I'm working on First Flight, which is a HAED design with artwork by Lisa Victoria.
