Never let it be said that your writer knows when it's time to quit! Instead of switching gears and working on something different she carried on cross stitching and then wonders why her fingers are wanting to bleed. Never let it be said that she ever says to herself that she'll quit just as soon as she finishes this little bit more....no never let it be said.
Oh well, at least there's a start at one of the chef ornaments as you can see from this photo...
- Although THIS is earmarked for kids, why couldn't it be a fun challenge for adults too, depending on what type of items are included?
- THIS is a cute little design for Easter.
- There isn't a pattern per se for THIS but it's something you could easily create on your own.
- Have a peek through the gallery of THIS artist!
Today's quote..."When you can't control what's happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what's happening. That's where your power is"
That tomato has evidently cut out the middle gardener! Straight to growing.ReplyDelete
Never seen that happen before unless the seeds have been planted on purpose. Very strange!Delete
Also no reader of this blog knows anything about overdoing, no.ReplyDelete
Wow! That is so neat!ReplyDelete
I've never seen tomato with seeds sprouting inside. It is funny, people aren't alone eager for summer.
Yes, it was certainly a surprise for us too. We didn't eat it because we weren't sure about it.Delete
I don't recall seeing that in a tomato but I've cut open peppers and had little peppers growing inside. Yes, and I was just working on something that was making my eyes blurry but I kept going to get it done. Now I'll be blurry for the rest of the afternoon..... but it was worth it. And I will add that I could put together tons of those mystery bags (and my husband would certainly be glad about it).ReplyDelete
Hah - I could put together tons of those bags too!Delete
I love the start of your new ornament--and yes, I totally "get" not wanting to stop before you've gone too far and begin to hurt!! Totally!!;000ReplyDelete
I have never ever seen a tomato sprouting inside itself before--how weird;;;did you eat it I wonder??? ;(((
I know you get it Julierose - it's so hard to stop sometimes.Delete
And no, we opted not to eat the tomato, just in case. It probably would have been okay but you never know.
The tomato is really quite something.... would be interesting to plant it in some compost and see if the seedlings grow. Loved the Easter Bunny embroidery design and the scarf... thank you for the links. Enjoy the rest of the week. Hugs Christine xxReplyDelete
Under normal circumstances Resident Chef would have planted the little 'growths' to see what happened but we're not going to be here for a couple of weeks so they would die anyway.Delete
Can't say I've ever seen a seed sprout inside a tomato or much of anything else. Eager little thing.ReplyDelete
When you've decided the best way to make yourself stop when you don't want to, please let me know.
I subscribe quite thoroughly to the idea that 'just a little bit more' is a good thing so I don't suppose I'll be much help to you!Delete
The trouble with cross stitch is that it's addictive hence me recently making 16 Christmas ornaments. I had to stop.ReplyDelete
Addictive indeed! I have forced myself to switch gears to another project for a few days.Delete
Hahaha! I think I say that almost every evening when I'm sewing. I think . . . this is it. I'm tired. I'll quit here . . .and then I keep going until I can hardly see straight! That tomato is WILD!! Love your little cross stitch . . . I'd need a super duper magnifying glass to do that these days!ReplyDelete
I think most of us can't seem to quit when we're enjoying what we're doing.Delete
Oh fun! Another cross stitch. The nice things about not being able to stop, is eventually you have a finished project. As opposed to me who stopped (I don't even remember how long ago), and has yet to pick it up again.ReplyDelete
When DID I last cross stitch anything?!? Oh my... I just looked back and see that it was 10 months ago! Gasp. I need to rectify that.
Sometimes the fun is in the actual creating but not so much in the finishing details. Will have to wait and see on that one. I plan to stitch them all and then put them together assembly-line fashion.Delete
OK, that tomato is super cool. I've never seen that! Your ornaments are going to be so cute!ReplyDelete
The tomato was most definitely weird. It was filled with tiny little sprouts but this was the biggest one. The fun thing was that the tomato itself looked really good on the outside.Delete
