I worked on Desiderata yesterday. I figured out that at the rate I’m going, I’ll finish this in about 18 months to two years. <thuds head on desk> Can I just happily stitch this piece on Mondays, getting done when I get done? No. I have a way of quantifying my progress, and I did. There are 25 or 26 bands and ‘areas.’ Each takes me two to three weeks to finish. That’s a minimum of 52 stitching days, 52 Desiderata Mondays. I don’t manage to stitch this every Monday, so it’s going to be my friend for quite awhile. That’s OK. I’m just impatient to hang it on my wall.
I enjoyed stitching on it yesterday so very much. The combination of pinks in the flowers was very soothing and satisfying.
