Not much going on around here, I've had a pretty lazy weekend. I had good intentions of getting a lot of spring cleaning done, but haven't done a lot. I think I'm getting too old to be working full time, all I want to do when I'm not at work is stitch or relax or putter around. I'm just plain tired!
I did do a little Easter decorating, and did get a new camera yesterday. I got an updated version of the Sony Cybershot, my old one that is 3 years old is a 5.1 megapixel, the new one is a 7.2. I promise to be taking lots and lots of pictures, I am charging the battery pack right now.
As for my ongoing quest for the perfect stitching rotation, let's just say the 10-hour rotation didn't work for me. I spent most of the month of March stitching on 2 projects, not touching the other 5 in my rotation. I think if I weren't employed outside the home, it would be an excellent option--or, if I didn't have SO many things I want to stitch. I am back to a different project each day of the week, but changed the days a little. The one thing I really want to finish each month is a Prairie Schooler santa every month or 6 weeks at the most. Having logged my stitching time this month on the santa I've been working on, It has taken me about 22hours to stitch the 1990 santa. I was doing these on Mondays. The day of the week in which I tend to do the most stitching tends to be Saturday, so I am now going to devote Saturdays to the Prairie Schooler Santas. I also tend to get a lot done on Sundays, so I thought that where I used to work on a small project on Tuesdays, that by moving those to Sundays, I would get more done in a shorter period of time, thus some instant gratification. Then , Mondays, Shores of Hawk Run Hollow, Tuesdays, Village of Hawk Run Hollow, Wednesdays, Elizabeth, Thursdays, This is the Day, and Fridays, Carriage House alphabet. I think even getting a few stitches done on each project every week will be better than not doing anything on some of them for a month. I miss all of my Carriage House projects that haven't been touched since February!
This week is National Physician's Appreciation Week. We're having a potluck luncheon for the doctors at work tomorrow. I'm making a fruit tart using a Paula Deen recipe. Maybe I'll take a picture of it with my new camera!
Have a great week everyone!
