About 5 years ago, you know, when I actually stitched, my husband went through some of my stash and picked out what we thought would be good holiday gifts for his family. We thought our beloved Aunt Sha would enjoy Wine a Bit by Sue Hillis. I kitted it up and set it aside. You can see where this is going, can't you? Of course, I couldn't find it when I needed it, and Christmas 2005 passed without a stitched gift for Aunt Sha. Every year since then I proclaim "This is the year I will stitch that!" I have purchased this design at least three times since then. I have kitted it and placed it in a safe place. And I can never.find.it.again!!!!!! So I'm starting to think of holiday stitching once more, and still this design calls to me. So the question is, do I heed the call? Has Sue Hillis cursed me to forever lose the design? Is this a result of a Voo Doo Boy doll? Do I buy it again? And more importantly, what have I done to warrant such torture? LOL
As for stitching, I have felt very stitchy lately, but nothing is happening. I can't seem to find anything that screams at me, new or otherwise. There are a lot of good designs, but nothing that I HAVE TO STITCH THIS INSTANT OR I WILL SEE IT IN MY DREAMS FOR DAYS...you know? I'm taking suggestions if anyone has any recommendations.
P.S. to my family: When I die and you go through my things, you are welcome to put the 27 Wine a Bit designs you'll find hidden who knows where onto my funeral pyre :)
