That's where I am with practically everything in my life at the moment. Stalled. Being that it is the middle of winter doesn't help, either. I hate winter. It's cold, it's dark, and I don't want to leave the house. Great thing about not working-- I don't have to leave the house. It's also the bad thing about not working. LOL Because I don't HAVE to go anywhere, I usually don't. Anybody see a nasty pattern developing here? LOL
While trying to catch up on some of my blog reading, I discovered a fun site with free backgrounds and gadgets for blogs-- The Cutest Blog on the Block. It probably isn't new, but it is certainly new to me. I had lots of fun playing with backgrounds before finally settling on this one. It's bright and cheerful... everything that winter isn't.
Since it's a new year, I decided to start a new project. It seemed like as good an excuse as any to start something new, and I thought it might be just the kick that I needed to get me out of my stitching slump. I'm delighted to report that I actually FINISHED it as well. The design is L*K's Autumn Boxer. I picked the chartpack up a couple of years ago and have had it sitting in my stash ever since. I'm a sucker for anything with pumpkins, so of course I just had to have this. Isn't it cute?
I haven't decided how I will finish this one. It's a regular size-- about 5" x 5"-- so it would probably work in a standard 6" square frame. But it would also make a cute pillow. Decisions, desicions!
