Wherein I make little progress, and I *like* it that way

The current cross stitch project is Nora Corbett's Jasmine. I'm getting close to the end, and it's looking nice. Last weekend I realized "If I just make a little push, I could totally get this finished!"

And then I didn't stitch on it at all. Poor Jasmine gets picked up and worked on after I finish something huge, and I no longer have the energy to put forth much effort. So instead of her getting finished last weekend and I move on to something new, I picked up TW's Diamonds in Squares and got it slightly farther instead.

And then I played video games.

Odds are I'll finish Jasmine up this weekend. I probably have 5-6 more hours of work before I'm done, and if I just work on it a bit every night I'll have it down to a nicely manageable portion for the weekend.

And then this blog will have pictures! Crazy!


  1. Yay to an almost-finish! I'd agree, you could make a weekend push for the finish line. Sadly, I have no progress to share, and none in the foreseeable future. School bites. Someday I'll get back to stitching.

  2. You can do it! Can't wait to see Jasmine, I'm sure she's gorgeous but in the meantime inquiring minds want to know what video games are taking up your free time. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is eating up mine:)
