WIP Wednesday Post For September 16, 2015

Things have been quite busy here in the house lately, so I am not as far along on my current project as I would like to be. I told myself that this is ok, as I have managed to finish the stitching on quite a number of projects this year, including 15 from scratch starts, which more than covers the unofficial yearly goal of one project a month (for a total of 12 per year). Given all that I have done this year, I have 'allowed' myself to coast for the rest of the year, should I so choose to do so. I probably need the break anyway, if for no other reason than to not give myself carpal tunnel trying to stitch everything in my not inconsiderable stash. :)

I can tell I am feeling better since losing our beloved Ozzy just over a week ago. It really does feel like a lifetime ago. I miss him horribly every day. I still look for him in his favorite places out of habit, but I assume like everything else, this too shall pass. This week I have been looking through stash to find things for other folks and have gotten the urge to stitch everything I am looking at at the time. Which is a good sign, I suppose. I have my OOP binder on my desk and as it is fall, I really want to get to all the Primitive Needle and Prairie Schooler that I have in that binder. Here, I must practice a bit of discipline, as that is how the Bin O'Shame came into being. I certainly do not need a repeat of that. I've worked far too hard this year to get it down to a somewhat reasonable level! :)

I'm so sorry to read that you've lost your beloved Ozzy...that just breaks my heart. I've been consumed in the whirlwind of working outside the home for a colleague of mine to cover for him and haven't had my "usual" time for reading blogs. I'm so sorry to be late in offering my condolences.

Playing in stash has a bad effect doesn't it?! :)
love your start!
