This statement is irritating: "Oh, I don't have the patience for stitching/crafting." How do you respond when you get that kind of statement? What's the best response you've ever heard/seen?
I'm one of those people who can come up with a GREAT response to annoying questions...2 hours after the fact. So while I too hate that kind of statement, I usually just shrug and say something dumb like, "oh, I don't mind." But the truth is, I'm NOT a terribly patient person! And for as much as I love starting new projects, the time it takes to finish them - especially with work, a child, housework, and all the other banalities of daily life - drives me mad. It is worse than standing in line behind someone writing a check in the grocery store.
And speaking of starting and finishing, here is "Reading." About halfway done!! Gotta love a quick project like this every now and then.
If you've stitched this one (or seen it stitched), you may notice a few changes. The thread included in the chart pack for the dress was much purple-r than the picture indicated -- in fact, it was almost the same color as the purple used for the big flowers and the birdhouse. Since I'd started with the dress and didn't feel like picking it all out, I found a darker/brighter purple in my stash. And I also picked a coordinating blue for the birds -- I didn't like them being purple birds!
