anyway, now all of a sudden it's the end of the semester, everyone is edgy and frazzled in a way that only the end of spring semester at a community college can produce in people, and i'm exhausted.
so many things happen at the end of april/beginning of may too, outside of school, that my head is spinning. i've got, in the next few weeks, a concert, a meeting with my replacement for the house, a production meeting, a commencement ceremony, and auditions. plus, the next few weeks include my sister's birthday, our anniversary, mother's day, and j's birthday.
and on top of all of that, j and i are house hunting.
to say that i've had little time for any sanity-building experiences like stitching is an understatement. most days i get to the end of the work day wondering if i ever remembered to eat lunch (today the answer is no, which is sort of set off by the fact that i didn't actually get to finish my breakfast biscuits until almost 2:00) and then i get home and zone out for a couple hours before simply collapsing into bed.
but, silver lining, it will all calm down soon (i hope).
anyway, here is my meager addition to my ORT jar this month:
that's the page i started in february.. remember when i had high hopes that this piece would be done by christmas? i think that bird has flown.
and here's where the piece stands as of now - i've done almost 2 whole 10x10 grids since my last post... whew (if there were a sarcasm font i would be using it right now):
but that's how life goes sometimes, right? some days you get to stitch, and some days you don't. i think the days when you just can't make the ones when you can all that much brighter.
and now i must return to my regularly scheduled insanity.
