Nope, I've never done a mystery. The closest I ever came to starting one was the French "Mystery Garden" freebie that ran last year -- I DID print out all the installments, so I could do it later. I guess I'm not a big fan of not knowing what I'll have in the end! Also, I'm a notoriously slooooow stitcher, so I can easily see me getting behind, getting frustrated, and giving up.
I just realized how very little stitching I've done this month. *sigh* I didn't even set any goals for the month -- maybe that was my subconscious telling me that I wasn't going to do anything??? Hmmmm. I already know that the rest of this week is pretty much shot....tonight I have to work until 10 pm (covering some hours at the reference desk for a coworker) and tomorrow I have my not-so-annual appointment with the opthomologist. I hatehateHATE going there....it makes me panicky and nervous....knowing that he could discover a diabetes-related problem with my eyes that is undetectable to me at this point. Scary. I know it SHOULDN'T be scary -- I mean heck, if he finds something early, it can be fixed with lasers and such -- but I'm a total Type A control freak, and the idea that my health has gotten one up on me is terrifying.
So everyone stitch some happy thoughts for me tomorrow, ok? Thanks!
