I have no control!!!

Well, a couple of posts ago, I went on a little rant about all these projects that I wanted to start. Well, I did just that. I just lost all control and started 4 new projects. I am having such a great time. I've even gone and gotten organized with all of my WIP's and UFO's, even a couple of my future WIP's are somewhat organized. I went and put them all in individual project bags, and spent an evening, making little metal tags and stamped the designer initials on the tags. I think I saw the tag thing on Nicole's blog. It works though. I keep all of the projects that I'm currently working on in a little tote bag by the couch. The rest of them are kept in a basket not too far away as well. I even started a little rotation. I've never really been too good on rotations, but so far it's going well. Not too strict though. I'm working on each project for 2 days in a row. So far, anyway.

Here's my progress pictures from the last week in a half or so. This first one is Plum Street Samplers Still Waters that I'm in doing as a SAL with Jean http://theslowstitcher.wordpress.com/ on Friday nights. This was Friday and couple of hours on Saturday. I'm really enjoying it. Here is my LK ABC Lessons progress. I'll probably start working on this one again tomorrow.
Here is my BGS Quaker Virtues piece. I just started working on this last weekend. So only about 2 days worth. I really like it though.And last, but not least, my PS Spring Breeze piece. I'm working on all 4 of these season pieces for the wall in my dining room. I'm really excited about all of these. This is about 4 days progress.

Now when I say days, it's usually only a couple of hours each day. That's OK though.

This is my last full week of my my current employment. I will be sooo glad when it's all over. I was ready to walk out last Friday, but decided to hold out this last week. Then I have several days off before the new job starts.

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderfully stitchy week.

Take care!

Mel

Melissa, how great that you started four new projects! They all look wonderful. And how great it is that you organized everything. I saw Nicole's WIP bags, too, and thought it was a great idea.
