A Little of What You Fancy Does You Good.

I picked up Gigi the other morning only to realise that the whole of the left side needs to be frogged before I can start again. Why I did not see this before I do not know. Anyway I threw it on one side in utter disgust and then just could not seem to settle to stitch so ended up on the computer doing some more to the design for my Neighbourhood.

At the moment stitching time is very limited and with three SALs and UFO day that only leaves 3 days for the rota the result of which is i am trying to work on too many things in too little time and getting nowhere which is leaving me feeling really frustrated. So I have decided to follow the old phrase of "A little of what you fancy" and just stitch on whatever takes my mood at the time. Apart from my own designs which I am trying to complete and photograph for the website my son is designing for me I will not make any new starts but will probably work with the smaller things in my rota or those that have not too much to be done on them and try and get some finishes. I think that the fact it has been so long since I had a finish is not helping either as it all adds to that getting nowhere feeling.

Having said no new starts there will be one very small one at the weekend as I am going to the Crafty Natter meet up in Derby and Colly of Cols Creations is going to be doing the prettiest little tin topper as a class, so I just have to take part.

Hope to have some pictures for you soon.

May your frogs stay in your ponds.

Sounds like you're busy at the moment. I think you're right with the little of what you fancy.
I think I've just hit a wall with my stitching and need a break and a rethink.

I think I know what you mean ,when it seems like a chore to stitch,it is best to stitch something nice and easy. You know how you can get the blogging without obligation signs I wonder if there is a stitching without obligation as well!LOL

Oh no, not a frog visit. :0(
I think that's why rotas don't work well with me - prefer to stitch whatever I fancy when the mood takes me.
Hope you have a good time at the meet-up. :))

aargh! How annoying is that?! I think you are probably right to drop the rota for a while.
Have fun at your class

It's strange you dont see a mistake when you are doing something but it leaps right out at you when you pick it up the next time, happened to me too often!

Enjoy your weekend meet up

A little of What You Fancy sounds good to me. I'm enjoying not being at college and HAVING to do things I don't want to. I'm much happier.
