The new "arrivals"

Still a WIP (Work In Progress)....


Yesterday I spent the entire day labeling and wounding all my new "arrivals" from Wednesday. Yes I stash again but this time its just the extra skiens that I'm missing for the next (and the next and the next) project. Well one has to plan ahead right? And to buy in bulk adds to my pleasure of buying and saving up on the postage on eBay!

I haven't been doing a lot of stitching lately due to enemy numero uno; laziness and the heat of summer! When it gets really hot I just don't feel like sitting down to do any stitching much less reading. But I did went to the swimming pool almost everyday. In fact everyone (around my neighbourhood anyways) goes to the pool when its hot. Not to swim but to "bake" themselves! As for me, I've had enough "baking" (Malaysian mar! Who wants to get any darker wor?) and am more interested in the cool refreshing water than the hot, burning deck chair!

Anyways, I still managed to stitch a few grids last night before my eyes goes all watery. Before embarking on this current project, I was confident that I'm going to finish it by end of July. Guess what? I'm finishing it but it just wont be the end of July. Talking about over confidence.... What was I thinking off? Ah... I remember now.... The whole piece wasn't that hard and big to stitch. And besides, I'm going to put in at least 5 hours of stitching time into it everyday (well, every weekday). Well guess that 5 hours turns into 4 and half, then 3 then 2!! I'm very (very) disappointed in myself for letting me fall into the hands of the "enemy" (laziness & heat). Let's just hope that for my next project, it won't turn into a UFO (UnFinished Object)!

Common Shanny, pick up the needle and finish it. It's such a cute picture and it brings a smile. Dedicate just maybe 2 hours a day (break it up maybe 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the evening) and you'll see progress in your WIPs soon enough.

For sweaty seats ;) can I suggest one thing, you can get those round floats for kids, blow it up, slip it into a pillow case big enough for the float, and seat on it. That way you'll be suspended from the chair and you'll be comfy ;)
