Dropping In

It's another Monday. Nothing exciting happened over the weekend. As a matter of fact, the weekend was full of headaches. Our main computer got zapped by a nasty, nasty bug and we spent the majority of our time trying to find and retrieve files. Not fun! Things have turned upside down around our place for awhile but I am hoping all will be back to usual within several weeks so for now, I don't have a lot of stitching to report on or show off.

Over the weekend, I decided to take a trip through my past blog posts. I saw a lot of birds, nature photos, scrapbooking endeavors, trips we took and stitching. I couldn't help but notice that although many of the projects had either been finished off or still in WIP mode, there were a few that I had not picked up in a long time. They were just sitting around, waiting for some attention. What a waste of my time and their potential finished beauty! So I dug them out, kitted them back up and have them in my basket of growing WIPs. I may need to find another basket to house them all until they each begin to finish off! I don't even want to list the total number as it makes me mad at myself for letting this happen! When I first began stitching I would never, never, never let this happen. I would start one and work on it until it was finished. Of course, back then I didn't have all these wonderful designs to choose from either so I'm not complaining!

How many WIPs and UFOs do you have? *wink*

With everyone posting pictures of their new or familiar established pets, I was feeling out of the loop. Should I post a picture of some of the regular visitors to my backyard kingdom? Then I saw Edna sitting all by herself on the chair. She is such a good ol' gal and never complains. A quality worth appreciating. She doesn't look especially happy about anything but she always catches my eye as I walk by and gives me reason to smile. I fluffed up her dress and spread out the skirt all nice and pretty for a picture. Who is to say that she didn't enjoy the much over due attention?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your visits and comments always brighten my day. Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.

Edna is cute! :D I don't even want to think about how many WIP/UFO's I have. No way am I telling. lol!

Edna is my kind of pet! My friends have been spending oodles of money on their pets lately. So we are liking the stuffed variety more each day :)

How many WIP's and UFO's? Well, I have 12 listed on my blog sidebar, plus 2 Crazy January Challenges left, plus close to that total I haven't had the guts to list in public, so I am thinking 25?? That is close.

I have enjoyed reading your post today, and am glad that you have been able to re-establish your computer again. That must have been very upsetting and frustrating for you.

Isn't it a wonderful feeling to get all of your UFO's and WIP's organized and ready for your needle whenever you feel ready to tackle one of them again:)

Your sweet Edna has brought a smile to my face today today.

Crossing in Stitches With You!

Ugh, computer problems are definitely a headache! As for how many WIP's and UFO's I have-I don't want to know :) For everything I start, I do try and finish something. I'm surprised at how close I am to finishing most WIP's. I love Edna, she's sweet.

I think Edna looks very observant! There is no way I want to tell, let alone count, my WIP's...or the things I have purchased waiting to become a WIP...shhhh!

Hmm..I don't have as many UFOs as a lot of people. But I've come to think that if it is in my house and I have fibers for it, it may as well be started. I used to never, ever work on more than one project at a time. I'm so over that. LoL! What was I thinking??
