SBQ of the Week

Today's SBQ was suggested Kathryn and is:

How many needles do you use during a project? Have you ever loaded up a needle for every color? Do you use a new needle for every project or recycle your favorite needle?

I only use one needle at a time per project. I have never really thought about using more than one needle because I think it would be hard for me to keep track of the needles. Heck, I am doing good if I can keep track of the one I am using! If I say "Uh-oh" Mike starts to look on the floor for my needle. :)

It is sad to say but I haven't touched my stitching today. I have decided to start another new project. You may remember I started to stitch a design called Geisha by Nanci Rossi but due to events beyond my control the fabric got ruined. (For those of you who are wondering what I am talking about go here.) Anyways, I am going to start her tomorrow. I am stitching her on 28 count white cashel linen.

I am not sure how much I will get to work on her tomorrow. I have to take FIL to the doctor tomorrow for his yearly check up. After that we are going out to have lunch. Meanwhile Mike gets to take Allie to the dentist to have 4 teeth pulled to get ready for her braces to be put on. The actual braces will probably be put on later this summer.

Again, I want to thank everyone for their get well wishes. :) I am feeling better but not quite normal. Most of it is due directly to stress. Between my FIL, Mike, kids, and pets and I honestly don't have any "me" time lately. By "me" time I mean time by myself to do stuff for only me. With summer break coming on it doesn't look like I am going to get it anytime soon either. At least I won't have to get up at 5:45 am until school starts back....yippie!!

Happy Stitching!

She is really lovely. I hope you get lots of enjoyment out of stitching her.

Don't worry about not having enough time for yourself. These things go in cycles. When your summer schedule settles down, I'm sure you will find more time for yourself.

Wow! Geisha will be quite a project. Can't wait to see her progress.

How pretty. I hope you are able to find some "me" time shortly to work on her.

She is so pretty - glad you are re-starting her. Hope you get some me time soon!

Geisha will be lovely, the colors are so pretty. Hope things settle down soon so you can have some "me" time. However, at least not having to get up so darn early should help a little. :)

What a pretty design! I'm sorry to hear about the first attempt.

It's rough when your time is always focused on other people! Hopefully, things will work into more of a routine for you soon. :)

I hope you find some me time soon!

I'm so glad that you are giving her another start. I agree with the other commenters and hope that you will be able to find sometime to focus on yourself again soon.
