that is a wonderful plan triss.  i should adopt something like that.  right now, for me, it is "work on this until it is done so you don't quit midstream and refuse to pick it back up"

No, I know me, I just got caught up in something more exciting and thought I would get right back to them, put them somewhere and promptly forgot about them.  There has to be a word for it, but I dunno what it is. 
I know several words for it but most have to do with age and I know that is not your problem.  :grinnnn:

I keep trying to find the right word Tina... so throw some out there for me. 

One of my problems was doing just that Jenn and I would get so frustrated that I would say, ok I am not gonna finish this then.  Hence the dozens and dozens of WIP's.  I am working hard at making a change... that and I am really tired of all the clutter in my craftroom.

The last two I have are a little more involved though not much.  One is a Christmas scene with the bottom corner undone and the other a clown who is missing its face.  They are both now my "evening while watching TV" projects until they are done.  Then the framing of them all and turning them into wall hangings is my "once I am done with the project for the day" projects.  Today's project was Lys' quilt and since I got that done, I started framing the bear on the rocking horse.  Tomorrow's project is the rows for the jean square quilt.

Uh, I think the word ya need is ihavewaytoomuchgoingonatonceandgeteasilydistracted.



Look, I know the supernatural is something that isn't supposed to happen, but it does happen...RZ

i was at mom's tonight and remembered to take a photo of a cross stitch i did for her years ago.  the photo is not very good, i will have to go back and take another one, but here it is for now.  i've typed the poem underneath it.



To My Other Mother
You are the mother I received
the day I wed your son.
And I want to thank you Mom
For all the things you've done.
You've given me a gracious man
With whom I share my life.
You are his lovely mother,
And I his lucky wife.
You used to pat his little head
And now I hold his hand,
You raised a little boy
And gave me the man.

here is the cross stitch i did for my grandmother.  I did it before I did the one for mom.  When Granny died, I took it back and today, I found it when I was looking for things for Kate.

well, i forgot to put what it says.  so here it is:
Come talk with me of days gone by...
Let's linger there awhile.

Some memories will make us cry...
But more will bring a smile.
