I'm back.

Had to go to Texas for a bit, but I'm back now. I can't remember the last time I stitched. My April Cole's Quilt Square isn't finished, and I haven't touched Skeleton Crew in about two months. And I haven't even started the Brooke Nolan Advent Animals. {sigh} 

When I got back from my trip I was too tired to stitch, but I needed something to do to keep my hands busy without taxing my brain. Solution: wind floss. I've had dozens and dozens and dozens of skeins of floss that needed to be wound onto bobbins for, oh, I don't know... years. So I plopped down in the floor and started winding. With help, of course.

I'm pretty sure winding floss is Tiger Lily's favorite stitchy activity. So much potential for mischief. Happily, she was well-behaved. Or, perhaps more accurately, closely watched. So I was cross-eyed tired, but still productive. Look how pretty!

Isn't that delectable? 

Anyway, I've been having this delusion that I will have a super productive month of May and catch up on all those projects I mentioned at the beginning of this post. Maybe I'll succeed. After all, I'm off to a pretty good start. I wound a bazillion skeins of floss that have been waiting to be wound for years, so... yay me!

Happy Stitching!
