I did make a couple of decisions, well three actually, the other day. A long evening stretched before me with no dinner to get as the WT was living the high life and had gone out to dinner with colleagues. So, reluctantly, I hauled out the two Papillon SALs and got.......nowhere! Kept making stupid mistakes, hating the chosen threads, altogether no fun at all. So back in the Cupboard of Lost Causes they go.
The other decision was to NEVER take part in a Crazy January challenge again. While I can't see myself as a one project at a time stitcher, having that number is just....... well, crazy! And looking on the group and seeing how the number of emails have dropped dramatically from January, I am not alone. Except of course, maybe everyone is stitching and will put me to shame! I keep looking at the two tubs of projects and my indecisiveness goes into overdrive and I drive away, lol!
I exaggerate slightly saying I have nothing to show you, I do have this, though sadly I have run out of Kudzu which was substituted for the stems. The lettering is stitched in Weeks Indian Summer which is my new favourite thread. We could wish for a summer in the UK, Indian or otherwise......

Logic not being my strong suit, Niina kindly pointed out that if you do a quarter turn and stitch *sideways* as it were, all will be well, and do you know, I think she is right, hope so, Niina, as it is your RR I am stitching on now!
Since the end of June has come and gone I can show you what I sent to Jane for the NH Summer exchange. This is the second time I have stitched this piece and given it away and one day I will stitch it again and keep it! I might , just possibly, have got the top bird on the left a bit turned around but who is to say? It is a sweet pattern but sadly Caroline hasn't posted on her blog for some time.
As you know we live in a barn and as everybody knows, barns have owls in them, yes? Um, well, yes, definitely THIS morning........!
