Another Moogies Photo

The seemingly interminable grey outer border is actually stitched, as is the mouse and a bit more of the flower.  Of course, I now have no excuse for avoiding the two remaining vertical legs of the black and white checkerboard inner border.

I think once I am through with Midnight Moogies, I will return to a more normal [for me, at least] three to four to five project rotation.  I find that, though I am not bored with my stitching, I have become bored with my blogging about this one project.  How much can one say really?  I am posting less frequently since it takes longer periods of time to produce the sort of progress that is worthy of a photograph.  And since my blog is primarily a journal about my stitching rather than a series of essays on stitching in general, this makes for less time spent writing, an activity I do enjoy as long as I have something to write about.

Then, of course, I need to get working on my 2013 BAPs: finishing the stocking for Liam and starting and finishing the stocking for Piper.  These are major projects and I certainly need to get started on them if I am to have these stockings ready for Christmas of 2013.  And there is also my goal of stitching a Town Square ornament a month so that I may have a Small Town America themed Christmas tree in 2013.  Furthermore, I'll be taking another class with Thea Dueck in October and I'd like to have all my previous Thea class pieces finished and ready to display at show and tell.  Finally, I am itching to get started on one of the few charts I bought last year, Cedar Hill's Berry Patch Rabbit.  What better time to stitch a rabbit then in the weeks prior to Easter.  And I also want to stitch Tansy-Yarrow-Rue during the Spring to get me in the mood for gardening again and to show my appreciation for my husband's thoughtful anniversary gift of three charts from my wish list.

All of the above will restore some much needed variety to my daily stitching routine and will enable me to write about it more frequently and more fluidly.  I truly miss blogging.  One might argue that blogging is essentially a narcissistic activity in the first place but, even so, one needs something [however thin] to write about.

Well done - you've almost finished and it's looking great - love the mouse!

I've joined forces with a couple of stitching blogging friends and we are doing a Friday night Christmas stocking SAL - would be lovely to have you join us if you wanted to.

I'm sorry that you feel this way, I love these cats so I certainly don't mind that you are continuing with them :) Will you be willing to sell me the chart/magazine after you have finished stitching?

The mouse is so cute, great colour choice. I don't mind you blogging about the same project, it's nice to see the progress.
