Miracles do happen; I finished a project last night!! Okay, the true miracle is that for the past couple of days I've actually sat down and stitched. Finishes aren't hard when you actually do some stitching it's when you don't stitch that it makes finishes miracles. Have I lost you yet?!
I've made myself take an hour each night to do some stitching. Okay, I will clarify that more. I set aside time later in the evening when I think I should be able to stitch. This week it's just worked out that I've been able to stitch between 20 and 40 minutes per night. Ryan fell out early last night because he didn't get but a five minute nap on the way home yesterday. By 8:30 he was falling asleep in my arms. The others were pretty tired too so I didn't have many major battles and was able to stitch while watching/listening to Forrest Gump. I love that movie but I've seen it so many times that I can stitch and listen and not miss any of it. Know what I mean?
The funny part about this finish is that it took me several minutes before I realized that I was actually done with it. I had to look at it and at the pattern a couple of times before a lightbulb went off in my head. "Helllllooooo, you're done, get up and do a happy dance!" Body replied "Sorry brain too tired for that right now!" It's Friday so I'm off to finish up the laundry, vacuuming and the dreaded bathroom cleaning - YUCK!
