Babysitting. This is from the original chart, which has been retired. It is small and does not have as many colors as the one that is currently available, but still looks pretty good (imo).
Next I worked on Ballet Pigs. I hadn't work it this one for over three years! I don't know why it took me so long to pick it up again, it is such a whimsical design and so much fun to watch those little piggy smiles appear as you are stitching. Sad to say, though, I had some trouble with the light bands. Drat these aging eyes! Hopefully stronger reading glasses will help with that.
And finally, my precious, Darkling Mini. Unfortunately, I did not make much progress. For one she came up during the week and I was home late most days. And second I was too distracted by the weird thumping thing that was happening in my chest. It had been going on for a week, and while I am pretty sure it's not actually my heart (since I can still exercise with no problems), it certainly feels like the thing is trying to jump out of my chest through my throat. I think the underlying cause is anxiety, which I have been having a lot of trouble with lately, and then worrying about what the heck it was certainly didn't help with that! I cut out my morning coffee and ate almost nothing for two days and it seems to have finally stopped. So probably stomach related, which was probably caused by the anxiety, and maybe made worse by the caffeine. If it starts again, I'll go to the doctor.
For the new rotation I have 5 slots with 1 project (Darkling of course!) in slot 1, 3 in slot 2, 6 in slot 3, 12 in slot 4, and the rest in slot 5. This way I'll be able to work on my darling Darkling at least once a month and also be able to spend more time on those that are my favorites. I don't know how long it will last, but the first five are:
1. Babysitting (slot 3)
2. Ballet Pigs (slot 4)
3. Darkling Minin (slot 1)
4. Dream Dance Fear (slot 5 and will be a new start, yes shame on me, but I just can't help myself)
5. Hannah Lynn Montage (slot 2)
I starting working on Babysitting yesterday.
