Traffic Jam

I am having a traffic jam in my brain! I have so many things I want to do. There are so many new projects going and new patterns out that I want to start. I promised ya'll a photo of my squash contest win that I still haven't posted. I need to do things like balance the checkbook, etc. I need to do some EGA paperwork, I am the treasurer after all! I got in 16 boxes of Christmas products at the store today, a box of a Vera promo, and an order of Christmas books. All of that has to be priced and put out. Tomorrow night I have to go pick up another order that will have to be priced and put out. Saturday is the Governor's election. I will have to work that which means up at 4:30 and at the polls until 9 pm. I am still stitching away on The Scent of Old Roses. That needs to be and will be finished probably by the end of the weekend. I still have to pick the pattern and stitch my next installment on the Mirabilia RR. I have about a week to do that. I need to do the next assignment in my Spanish SAL by Nov 1st. Ok What else???? I think that is it for right now. Oh I need to pay on my EGA Seminar balance. I think that has to be in by Nov 15. Maybe sooner, I don't know. I am sorta stalled out on The Scent of Old Roses but am pushing through to the finish. Does anyone else ever get like this? I can't focus on anything but finishing this.

There was an interesting question posed as I was blog reading the other day. The question was..Why do you stitch? For the process or the finish? Well I truly truly stitch for both. I love the process of the stitch, I love challenging myself with new stitches and combinations of stitches. I love to see a piece come together. I love to see it forming into something. It is also a great feeling of accomplishment when it is all done and I can stand back and look at what I have created. I think it is amazing some of the things that I can do with a needle and thread (I am not discounting anything that anyone else does). I love the challenge of hard pieces but also love the simplicity of the easy ones too. How about you?

Have a great evening. I am off to stitch some more. Hopefully aoon you will have those pictures that I promised.
