bit of a slump


My threads did not arrive yesterday in the mail. I'll be stitching on Christmas Eve for sure. :-( I forgot to toss in Blackwork Garden in my bag this morning as I was running late so I continued work on my Workstation. Not much progress to report from yesterday - when I got on the train for my ride home, I noticed right away that I was off one row on the bottom. So out it came. That seemed like most of the ride. And I didn't do any stitching last night. I'm in a bit of a seasonal slump. I can't wait for December 22nd when the days start to get longer. I really need to take a nice walk in the sun.

In the new year, I'm going to start a 10/25/50 challenge. I realize that I don't even have 10 fully kitted projects but I do have at least five ready to go and other five or so partially kitted. So my plan is to do those before I buy another chart. I will have to however, buy some supplies to finish several of them. Today is my last day in the office until next Wednesday - over my mini break, I'll figure out what my 10 projects will be. Unfortunately at least three that are ready with linen and fibers are fall projects. I'll be wanting to start some Easter/bunny/spring stuff soon so I'll need to get moving on those first. My two Quakers also come to mind right off. And my Cirque des Cercles - my Glacial silk arrived from Vikki Clayton. I purchased the premium so I could do it with one strand on a dark 32 count. It really is lovely fiber. The color is divine. I've been reading a board that has reoccurring posts about Cirque des Cercles with WIP pictures. It makes me really want to get started.

Last night was agility with Molly and she was terrific! I continue to be so proud of her.

I can't wait for December 22nd either - I hate the long dark nights :(

Hope you get your threads soon!
