I only stitch on days that end in "y".

A week of stitching, etc.

I seem to have startitis.  I'm working on LHN's Family Sampler (in a remembrance sal), a PS Woodland Santa, a cupcake (freebie from The Floss Box for a block exchange), and today received my floss for Quaker Gone Tropic (another sal).  I'd really like to start LK's Six Fat Men (received the overdyes I ordered for that too.) but maybe should finish something first.  I'm still waiting on a friend to receive an ornament I sent before posting the pic which is my last 2011 finish.  I sure hope it didn't get lost in the mail.

My walking buddy and I decided to increase our mileage so we're up to 4 1/2 miles.  We can hardly tell the difference except that it takes more time than doing the 3 miles.

One DS just finished his last HS final for the semester and I just sent another DS back off to college today. 

I'm helping tomorrow at a bake sale for DS's HS band and also helping in a committee for a judges hospitality room for an upcoming solo/ensemble contest.  Shortly after that, I accompany DS's band on their trip to Disneyworld.  Never a dull moment around here!

I hope everyone has a great week.

I agree with Mouse - startitis is good!

Have a fun trip to Disney World - it's been a while since I was there, and I'm always looking for an excuse to go back!

Nice WIPs, Rita! I have been having the same starteritis symptoms, but it's all good! :) Enjoy your week and the trip to DW!

What a busy lady you are! Good for you. I think I'll be running into lots of decisions as to what to stitch next this year. Where I'll be doing lots of smaller things, I'll probably talk myself into having more than one going at a time. If that be the case, then why not have several going? Hmmmm? We'll see. I'm your newest follower by the way, and I loved your comment about getting a new box of crayons. I know exactly what you're saying. Love your blog. Keep up the good work.

Rita, your starts are wonderful ones; we have the same taste in designs, you know :)!

I, too, am wanting to do 6 Fat Men by LK, but I have to get the patterns, floss and fabric yet. I've told myself "no" several times, as I have my hands so full of stuff that needs doing, but as I see this project on various blogs, my resolve weakens...

Rita, you have some lovely projects underway :) I stitched the PS'er a couple of years ago and it's one of my favorite pieces :)
Have a great week :)
