Scattered, Smothered, and Covered

It's been a while since I've had a post, but really, I haven't felt like posting, let alone stitching. Life is really stressful ATM, and I sort of feel like a plate of Waffle House hash browns: Scattered, Smothered, Covered, Chunked, Topped, Diced, and Peppered. Which, for those of you out there who have not had this particular Sex on a Stick, means that there are a lot of things on my plate, it doesn't look too pretty, and I am not sure if I can finish the whole thing, and if I do, how much heartburn am I going to have. Such is life, I suppose.

When I *have* felt like stitching, it's like I have ADD or something. It's not for very long, and I keep skipping to different projects. I've started two more projects. Oh, well. I suppose it doesn't matter as long as I stitch on *something*.

No updates on the Eiffel Tower project. I've stitched on it some, just not enough for it to matter. That, and I forgot to take pics. :(

Here are my two latest ones plus the subsequent stitchy notes. Both are freebies that you can find on the intarwebz.

On the left of my stitchy bag:

Design: Hare Lines

Designer: Bent Creek

Fabric: 28 count black jobelan

Fibers: Weeks Dye Works Snowflake for the bunny, Chartreuse for the border.

On the right of the stitchy bag:

Design: Love Letters (member only)

Designer: Papillion Creations

Fabric: 32 count mocha linen

Fibers: DMC B5200 and 815

Hopefully, I will soon have a finish and more importantly a JOB. I need one very badly, for my sanity, if nothing else.

Hope everyone is having a ham filled Easter Sunday.


Respectfully submitted,
