Skipping Around

Friday-Sunday's rotation piece was supposed to be The Mystic Smalls.  But stitching is a joy and a pleasure and it pleased me to skip on over to The Berry Patch Rabbit.  The rabbit had three things going for it: 1] it was handy, right on top of the stitching pile, 2] it was uncomplicated and 3] it was about two thirds of the way to a finish.  All these factors combine to make it the perfect fit for this past weekend.    And the proof is in the pudding: I have a finish.  It's only the second finish so far this year making it all that more precious to me.    According to my list, the next piece in the rotation is Midnight Moogies which is also very close to a finish.  I may be able to add a third entry to my Cross Stitch sidebar before three more days are done.  Extending the rotation interval seems to be working for me.

So the revised rotation schedule will be:
4/15-17.  Midnight Moogies.
4/18-20.  TW's Woodland Angel Christmas Stocking.
4/21-23.  Sewing Finishes.
4/24-26.  The Fiber Shop.
4/27-30. Mystic Smalls.

If I do manage to finish Midnight Moogies in this rotation, in May, I'll replace it with The English Band Sampler which hasn't seen any action since September of 2012.  Even with the expanded rotation intervals, it should take two or three months to finish the remaining bands.  I can't believe I have just typed the word May ... time seems to be flying.  But then this is one of my busy seasons and time always seems to run out faster when you are working against multiple deadlines.

Stitching should be fun, so even though you have a rotation, it is definately okay to change your mind! Lovely finish!

Beautiful finish - it's great when we can tick something of our to do list. I am sure it won't be long before you add another finish.

I think the extended rotation works best when you actually pick up a needle. I've been doing a week on each piece. But getting nowhere. ;) Beautiful job!

Congrats on your finish, love the rabbit.

I change my mid about rotations all the time, I can't seem to stick to one but as long as something gets stitched on every day it's all good!
