i-Challenge Day 12

Whew!  I can't believe I am still on track - starting a new project everyday.   I know to some this is just a crazy thought but so far I am finding it enjoyable.   I am looking forward to what is coming on my list and each day I am excited to start something new, to have a fresh piece of fabric and to be tantilized with new flosses.   To me, the 15 in 11 i-Challenge, allows me to rationalize it as ^permission^ to have so many WIP's!!!!  Seriously, I see me being able to complete them all and I can't wait to complete the first one.....which will it be???? No pix today but I have made stitchie progress each day....one day only about a dozen stitches but it technically classifies as a New Start!  Hopefully I can post pix later this evening.

I was able to put my final report on my grant to bed last night with the director's review and approval and then the quick email to the Cultural and Heritage Commission.   ~~BIG sigh~~ of relief.   I have felt like I have had a second job for the last 10 days and I am glad it is behind me.....until the next Grant application process starts in August.  I'll worry about that in August.

So back to stitching - my daughter is sitting in an airport right now - hopefully with no flight delays.   How does this relate to stitching?  She is traveling from Massachusetts which is under 2 + feet of snow to Disney World in Orlando with 6 or 8 stitching friends.   How cool!  I bet they are all sitting in Manchester Airport right now knitting and stitching away while waiting to board their plane.   And heaven forbid, if there is a delay, they will all be able to pass the time happily stitching away.   As I look out at sunrise it is casting blue shadows on the snow......sitting around a pool stitching with friends sounds pretty darn good!  Have a great time Miss Amy.

For myself, not so exoctic destination but I will have a stitching weekend at a Campwanna Sew that I will be attending for the first time.  I am really looking forward to the rest and relaxation and fellowship with other stitchers.   Even though November and December are crazy busy it is a different crazy busy and I find that between Christmas and New Years things really kind of mellow out and slow down to a stress free time.  Then, WHAM! back to work and deadlines and evening meetings.....it may only be the third weekend of the new year but I am ready for a break this weekend. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching all!
