Danger, Will Rogers! Danger!
That is what someone should have said before I opened this cabinet! You see it is kind of like wiping that spot on the window over the kitchen sink. You wipe that spot and the next thing you know, you have taken down every curtain in the house and washed ALL of the windows! That is why you can't see out of my kitchen window, I learned that lesson. But, I had forgotten the lesson about looking through "just a couple of issues" for that smocking plate you vaguely remember.
Because when you browse those few issues, it turns into dozens of issues. Dozens of the beloved Creative Needle, I still miss them. ::sniff:: You then are enticed by all of the gorgeous projects you had forgotten about. The ideas begin to swirl in your head, you can't sleep at night for planning all of them. Then comes the next morning when you realize you won't live long enough to accomplish all that you want; so you narrow the wish list down to what you hope is a manageable few. That is what what this pile is here. Just a few.
First up is finishing this fall bishop. And finish hemming a precious bishop that a dear friend made for our baby. I am so blessed to have wonderful people in my life who take up the slack when I have way more planned than I could ever accomplish.
So stitcher beware! Be careful when you pull out "just a few issues" to look for something. It will snowball on you.
Sometimes Mommy does put her in just a t-shirt.
