A House Without Books

Hello. My name is BW and I'm a serial starter.


Yes, I started a new pattern. It is one my mother and I picked up when I was in Georgia.

A House Without Books

I would be a lot farther than I am now if the dreaded frog hadn't come visiting. I really don't remember inviting him, but he sure showed up.

I ended up frogging all the blue on the right hand side because I skipped a row in the top panel. I didn't notice it until I finished the blue on the right and then started on the left. Hello froggie! That put me a few hours behind. Not sure when I will get it finished. I am hoping to be able to work on it on Thursday.

I took Thursday off from work this week. Ended up calling in Saturday night, too. I think between the holidays and the funky schedule I just really needed a break. Wish I could take nice month long vacation, but that isn't going to happen any time soon! LOL

I like that saying. I think it is so true. I go to some houses and don't see a single book a round and I think how sad.

The stitching looks great too!

Love the window and the backstitching at the top! Such a lovely design. Hope you are near the finish by now.

Looks terrific and I'm a serial starter too or I used to be. Now I won't let me start anything else until I have finished what I'm stitching. SO BORING! Because if I don't like what I'm stitching I won't let me stitch. Now how dumb is that? Love Patti xxx
