It’s been a while since I answered one of the Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tions. This week’s is
Are you start­ing some­thing new to cel­e­brate the New Year or par­tic­i­pat­ing in “Guilt Free January?” If so, what are you plan­ning on start­ing?

I had to go look up “Guilt Free Jan­u­ary.” Appar­ent­ly, it refers to some prac­tice of declar­ing that no mat­ter how many WIPs1 you have, you can start new projects in Jan­u­ary with­out feel­ing guilty about it. It’s prob­a­bly an RCTN2 ref­er­ence, but it’s been a while since I kept up with the news­group.

cp35c.jpgI just don’t know. I haven’t made much progress at all on my cur­rent WIPs3 in so long that it seems tru­ly ridicu­lous to start any­thing new. On the oth­er hand, there have been times when start­ing some­thing new that I’m excit­ed about has renewed my enthu­si­asm for stitch­ing in gen­er­al. I do have sev­er­al new pieces, although I’ve been fair­ly good about not buy­ing too many new pat­terns in the last year or two. Liz Turn­er Diehl’s Choco­late Wish Sam­pler is ter­ri­bly cute, and it has been sit­ting here look­ing at me for months, just wait­ing for me to break down and buy the fab­ric and fibers to start it.

I real­ly need to get a mag­ni­fi­er for my Ott Lite before I start any­thing new, though, because oth­er­wise I’ll prob­a­bly just get more frus­trat­ed.

And yes, the heat is back on! The main­te­nance guy came in and fixed the fur­nace today, for real. Yay!

Oh — if any­one has tried to call or text mes­sage me late­ly, I’m not ignor­ing you. My (near­ly new!) cell phone fell into my cof­fee mug some­how over the hol­i­day. I’m still not sure how I man­aged that lit­tle act of grace, but the fresh hot mug of Suisse Mocha killed the phone very effi­cient­ly. Thank heav­ens for cell phone insur­ance! The insur­er had a back­o­rder on the only decent mod­el they’re offer­ing at the moment, though, so I’ve been phone-less for a bit. I should have the new phone Mon­day or Tues­day.

Guilt free Jan­u­ary?

What a bril­liant idea!

*runs off to haul things out of box­es and start*

I’m enjoy­ing wrap­ping up some WiPs. I’m plan­ning to reward myself for reach­ing my next weight goal by get­ting the mate­ri­als for this free project Waya showed me — http://​twde​sign​works​.com/​F​r​e​e​/​c​c​r​o​s​s​.​h​tml

You two keep teas­ing me with the TW designs! Naughty, naughty wench­es!

When are you com­ing down for a stitch-in, any­way?
