Right Now

I am dreaming of starting this: Jane Atkinson

I'm wanting to finish 13th Colony Bay. Really. Really. Seriously. I want to finish this.

I want to work on Sonne Spotte--it's SO beautiful.

I have to finish 6 or 7 ornaments for a swap I'm in. I know what I want to stitch, but I'm not feeling the Christmas spirit at the moment.

I want to get over myself and sew the lining in the fat bottom bags. I hate it when I procrastinate.

I am so ashamed that I watched two straight days of America's Next Top Model on MTV this weekend. I absolutely positively did not want to leave the house at all, for anything. Ok, I didn't want to leave the couch for any reason, not just the house. It's such a great show. I am waiting patiently, sorta, for the new season of Project Runway to start. Come on Nov. 14th!

I want to start my Dresden Plate quilt, knit or crochet a few scarves, finish those fatbottom bags, make some Granny squares, and cross stitch all these amazing projects. There is not enough time in the day. I have overwhelmed myself with projects so instead I do nothing but watch two straight days of America's Next Top Model.

I did work a little bit on Samsarah's Always Be a Wildflower. Considering how much TV I watched you would think I would have that sucker finished but no, I only played at stitching. Made progress but not a lot.

Is it crazy that I'm not really a knitter but I'm wanting, seriously, if I don't get the whole interchangeable set of these I'll just die. I'm not a knitter, I only play at it right now, but these
needles are just beautiful! I think I could become a real knitter with these. Just gorgeous. I've been dreaming about them ever since I got the new Knit Picks catalog in the mail.

Anna-I made those Rachael Ray's Devilish Chili Dogs Recipe Recipezaar today for lunch.
YUM-O! Very good. Thanks for the link.

Tonight's dinner, chicken and noodles. I'm thinking I might make some Moosewood Lentil Soup from the original Moosewood cookbook one day this week. It's still ridiculously hot down here but I'm craving the comfort foods these days and few things are as comforting as that Lentil Soup.

And it's really hard to quilt when the dog ate the plug off the iron. Ironing is kind of important to quilting and if you decide oh well I just embroider some tea towels using one of Aunt Martha's Iron on transfers instead....DOH! The key word would be "Iron" on or maybe the key phrase is "the dog ate the plug off the iron"...hmmmm.....When does America's Next Top Model come on least that doesn't require ironing.

I'm glad you enjoyed those chili dogs. There are so many awesome recipes from her on the Food network site. Always take 30 minutes, always fantastic. (I draw the line at using her little kooky sayings, though my grandmother doesn't.)

Sometimes we lose our focus. It's okay; it'll come back.

I just realized that it may seem like I cam comparing you to my grandmother. So not. Sorry if it came out that way.

OO! Love that Jane Atkinson! That's my absolute favorite type of cross stitch! Sigh! Isn't ANTM addicting?! Tyra mail!

I too got lost in ANTM this past weekend! One of my guilty pleasures for sure. :-)
