5 days to go

So I have 5 days to go till my defense. I am currently working on questions that my committee may ask and writing all the answers I can find. No matter how well I prepare I am sure I'll miss something.

Needless to say I have not stitched at all over the weekend or during this week. I did find a replacement fiber (GAST cornflower) for the tropical ocean color on Seaology, but I haven't ripped it out yet.

But to keep you from going into stitchers withdrawal I posted this picture of my early anniversary gift from mom. It is a wedding sampler that we modified a bit to reflect Tybee Island lighthouse. (Ian and I were married on Tybee Island beach within site of the lighthouse). See the original pattern here. and a close up...

Speaking of weddings, I don't have any photos taken by the photographer at my wedding...thats right 3 years later I don't have a wedding album. Here is the thing. We had our photos taken by a digital photographer and have disks of the photos (can't print off those), but never ordered any. A combination of distance from the photographer (6 hours away in Savannah) and lack of $$ has caused this long delay. Well Ian told me the other day that for our anniversary later this month we are going back to Savannah and can meet with the photographer and order pictures and albums. Yeah! The one benefit of the time passing is I am sure what photos I want and what is not as important in an album...that might of been tougher right after the wedding.

And finally the SBQ:

Do you stitch “on the go?” (On the commute to and from work, during your lunch break, waiting for the kids, etc.) If so, do you have a specific “travel” project or do you just grab whatever you happen to be working on and take it with you? When I was working on the Flip-it's last year, I kept them in my car, but I rarely had a minute or two to work on them. I ended up bringing them home to finish then by the end of the month. I am almost never waiting for anything (I only go to the Dr. once a year, never wait at the dentist, travel maybe once a year) When I pack to go on the vacation, I of course take something, but I can't stitch in the car when someone is driving...motion sickness. So to make a long story short (Too Late!) No.
