Perhaps you are a little bit like me. You sit down to work on a project. "I only have five more colors to stitch on this piece," you think, "I will be done in no time!" And you stitch a little on the white because that is the color with the most stitching, but then you switch to the light green, (because white is boring) and that color takes you longer than you thought. Then you stitch a bit on the pink and that color takes you longer than you thought...and then three days have gone by and you haven't finished as you had imagined.
But it's getting there. I realized when I was stitching the pink snowflake on the left that I was going to have to decide what to do about the right hand side. The SB ladies have charted words, but I hate back stitched words. And I didn't stitch them on Blue. (And for reference: Red.)
On to my September ornament. And if I finish early, I'll see what I can do about finishing this guy.
