A Finish and A Birthday!

(Clearing of throat)

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Bridget! Happy Birthday to you!

The puppy in my life turns 5 today! She's hiding from the cold and rain today. And is parked in front of the register praying the furnace will kick on.

I completed number 9 last night!

And since I want spring to arrive so badly - please explain to me - why did I start another snowman??? This is why I should not pick the next year's projects in the winter! I have ornies, fall stuff, and snowmen!

I feel guilty because I got new stuff and want to start them... And I haven't posted on Up for a Challenge. See I should have picked up a WIP this time. Eh guilt - who needs it?

Must go to a dinner function tonight. Don't mind not cooking but hate functions. I'm not into groups that are not stitching related. Hmm, do you think they would mind if I took stitching to it? That would be in poor taste.  It's only 90 minutes or so. Compared to a lifetime - just a blink of an eye.

Off to stitch -

HI Denise! Love your finish I guess you brought the snow back today!! That is why I didn't join the Challenge. I can't plan my stitching that far in advance hehehe. I know what you mean about functions. Hate them - very tempting to bring stitching! Hope you have a good time,
Rose

she who starts new stash in one with many desires. Gotta love diversity, oh and one more thing,,, I have NO problem beginning another new design at all,,,,as for the function, how bad can it be? you go, you eat you visit, you leave, you come home and stitch. Basically all you have to do it go, watch someone bring your food, take it away, and then they clean up...does it really get any better than that,,, but I would still have something in my purse to stitch. Have fun and like you say it is only for a short time...Happy Birthday Bridget!
as always

Cute, cute, cute! You know I love this one :o)

I'd say you're doing really well with your WIP pile. Why not start a new project for every 2-3 WIP that you finish and get the best of both worlds ;o)
