It's a Stitching Life

This year I am signed up for two round robins. One is the Mirabilia RR and the other is the TWRR. They are spaced in such a way that that I can get them both done each month but it doesn't leave time for other stitching. For the Mirabilia RR I have had the opportunity to stitch Autumn Queen and part of Deco Spirits-Fire. I am currently working on Fairy Roses. For the TWRR I stitched the Renaissance Bookmark as the header of my RR and I am stitching Rose Tree in Bloom on Dani's RR. I am really enjoying the RRs eventhough I do not have enough stitching time to get to any of my other WIPs right now. I currently have 12 WIPs and I hope to get that number down tofive by the end of the year. When summer comes I will be able to get more stitching time and make progress on reducing my WIPS.

I was looking at Annette's blog and I want to add a list of my WIPS and completed pieces to the border of my blog. So I will have to do a little research and see if I can figure out how to do it. Well I better go do some house cleaning and laundry so I can do more stitching this evening.

My Quandry

It has been almost two months since I posted to my blog. This is what I feared would happen when I set up the blog. I am not a journaller of life. I much rather be doing something rather than write about it. So for the last couple of weeks I have been thinking about whether I should give up blogging and delete my blog. I appear to be the only one who reads it anyway so why bother. Part of the problem is my expectation that I need to be clever and amusing in every entry. I am a techie and don't really enjoy writing but as I get older I would love to have some record of my life even though it is not a extraordinary life in any way. But maybe recording the very ordinariness of it has merit. So I have decided to try again. Instead of expecting to write daily I am setting a more realistic expectation of writing here at least once a week.
