Weekend Update

We had a nice Halloween. No trick or treaters showed up and we didn't even see any out on the street. We watched some zombie stuff Mike had and I worked on the incredibly boring border for Sea to Shining Sea. By incredibly boring border I mean the white/cream boxes around the areas for the houses. It's not exactly something everyone is excited to see a photo of so I will wait until I get some of the house done.

I've decided I want to finish this old UFO for Christmas this year. It's a Bucilla kit I bought years ago when I was just starting to do a lot of cross stitch. It was one of the first designs I saw that had beads and charms back when only a few designers were using them. I've been stitching on it for the past 4 or 5 Sunday nights but I feel like I'm not getting very far. I thought taking photos might help inspire me.

DH and I are doing our on personal NANOWRIMO writing project this month. We aren't joining the official one, just doing something ourselves. I've had an idea for a story kicking around in my head for a couple of years now and I want to see if I can actually get something down on paper. I got two pages written last night that are pretty awful but at least it's a start.

Finally I am so happy this election campaign is almost over. It has been so long and ugly and I am sick of it. I will say one thing that has been good was whether you like them or not it was great to see more women and and an African American in the race. We've come a long way in my short lifetime.

You'd be surprised how much progress you have made when you look back at the photos. Makes a real difference and gives a real incentive to keep stitching. This is a beautiful piece and well worth keeping going

Hi Chris from another Chris,

You have inspired me to finish a kit I started and put to one side as I decided it wasn't exciting enough!
Taking a photo is a good idea too as it will show progress, just one thing I have to remember where I put it when I was making room for yet more stash!
