Remember, you will always have friends, guides, and love, Jen, but no one is coming to "save you."
That's the adventure package you signed up for.
The one that comes with all the superpowers, guaranteed rebounding abilities, and the all-powerful scrunched-nose-when-you-smile.
Your 5 Star Time-Space Adventure Tour Agency Manager,
Darn. I really wanted someone to come "save me." I get tired of doing it myself...I'm not very good at it. I procrastinate even on that-- or cause bigger problems.
Right now, I could use the Universe stepping in and cleaning up my studio space. It is chaos at the moment. White fabrics, vintage linens, lace, doilies, tatting pieces, etc. all out and in various piles for auditioning for the white on white pieces for Karen's class.
Even on the design board.
And at my embroidery work area-- there is floss, perle cotton, cotton a broder, shades of white and ivory floss and threads...everywhere.
Time to put together one or two more sections, and then fold up the fabrics and put them away for awhile. I have 3 sections that I'm working on now, and two more sections will be enough to keep me busy for a long, long time.
I've also been learning that counted cross stitch is too hard on my eyes, at least when using white on white. Maybe I should have gone with a larger size of waste canvas; maybe I should get magnifying glasses. Tuesday night, I stitched and pulled out. Stitched and pulled out. My eyes wouldn't focus on those tiny cross stitches well enough to find where to put my needle, but it was easy enough to see the problems when the stitches were done. Counting those tiny squares is difficult visually and frustrating emotionally.
May try again today, but no matter how much I love the way it looks, I may not be able to do much of the counted cross stitch.
Oh, and Universe, I could use some help with the computer.

I'm having computer problems. Still. It may be time for the Geek Squad.
