Problem Solved!

Ok, I'm not too sure about this new blogger - but it works so I'll just hush!

Birds of a Feather is coming right along and I think I've solved the itty-bitty problem I had. Let's say it's been adjusted! ;0)

I moved the crow up 5 stitches from where it should have been, brought the bird house down an extra 3, added another set of leaves to the flower, and got creative with his legs. He is a bigger bird than the other two anyway - so now he has stature. lol

Mentioned my 'notion of a rotation' the other day. The problem with it is --- I don't always get to stitch every day (shh, don't tell Jayne) and not stitching every day screws the whole thing up! And the thought of working on one project per week makes me weak at the knees. I don't know if I could put BOAF down for 3 weeks and work on my BAPs. Here was my overly organized idea ~

Monday - SAL
Tuesday - Portland Headlight Lighthouse
Wednesday - Colorful Sky
Thursday - Birch Forest
Friday - BOAF
Saturday - RAKs
Sunday - whatever

That isn't reasonable! All of the projects are now sitting at my feet awaiting their time. Oh, would you like to see what the heck I'm talking about?

Alright, sort have this the way I want and I need to go get started on dinner. The kids are coming over we're having Chicken Cordon Bleu, Pasta Pie (thanks to Anna), and Ice Cream Sandwich Cake.

Hope this weekend is everything you want it to be! Stay cool ~

Wow - I can't believe how quickly BOAF is coming along, even with (ahem) "adjustments". Way to go! And don't worry about a set rotation; just stitch whatever piece is calling out to you, and you'll be much happier.

Glad you managed to sort your problem. Like your rotation, I hope it works for you. I just noticed you are readign Joanne Fluke - she is very good isn't she.
