I Could Get Used to This

I'm starting to like having two projects going at once. (Does the phrase "pod person" mean anything to you?) It's a little scary.

Not only was Sunday SoHRH day, but so was Monday. I spent the morning stitching with my EGA alumni group. (Our chapter is defunct, but we still get together to stitch.) And since I FINISHED block 9 (which is really the 8th block...you figure it out) Sunday night with a big happy dance, I decided extending the border on block 3 was the way to go. Statistically speaking, I had a better chance of avoiding frog stitching if all I did was long rows of black x's.

So last night I started working on block 3. Mostly white, which always seems hideous when you are stitching it, but turns out great when washed and ironed. There was some frog stitching there because Jack Bauer was once again in the midst of choas and I got distracted. That man really needs to get a life.

So my big dilemma is what to work on tonight. Guess I'll have to wait and see what mood I'm in. How weird is that?

  1. Shores looks wonderful! I know what you mean about stitching with white - it looks not so nice until you've done the final pressing, etc. And I think that Jack Bauer needs to get a life too - it's kind of the same ole, same ole, don't you think!

  2. Your SoHRH looks wonderful! You are right, if we combine ours we could be almost halfway there. We might be able to, you know, since your fabric looks similar to mine. (Out of curiosity, what are you using?) I think I'll be working with the white again tonight. Care to join me?

  8. Funny to see you've come over to the 'dark side' and joined the rest of us serial stitchers :P I have to admit to do love having a couple of pieces on the go at once - stops you from getting bored :) Your WIP's are both lovely :D
