I can't think of a clever title

Stitching Bloggers Question of the Week: When comparing large projects versus small projects, which do you get more excited about finishing?

Ha ...what a question for me, I have never finished a BAP (Big Ass Project) the 2 I have I started in 97....I might finish this winter...Ha.
So needless to say I get excited about the ones that stitch up quickly...that are fun and have different stitches and several colors but not too much confetti stitching. Those are usually small to med in size.

I am currently fresh out of $$ so I have yet to finish the Nov flip it...I need a $1 to get the ribbon (life stinks when you don't have a $1 on hand). As for my afghan, I did finish 9 ladies dancing...and started 10 lords a leaping last night. Unfortunately as I look over my work I see sooooo many mistakes. It is almost as if you can see my progression as a stitcher over the past 9 years...that is probably as good a reason as any to finish a big project quickly. (I may even redo the calling x's are all messed up.... right over left...left over right accckk). To be totally truthful I hate the fabric I am working on ...I bought it at a craft store years ago and I now realize it was probably the cheapest afghan available, but since I have never seen anyone else's in person...I can't tell you if anyone could do any better.

In other news, Ian and I watched The Elegant Universe last night (a Nova program based on the book of the same name) We got it thru Netflix. It is a 4 part series made in 2003. I HIGHLY recommend it to any one who is curious about String Theory. It breaks it down very well for the average person. I even understand general relativity better now.

Nope, all of those afghans are made out of crappy material. Even the one I spent four years on (Maureen Appleton's Floral Afghan). It's not something you want to snuggle under...

What pattern are you using for the twelve days?
