I Shouldn't Have

So I was stitching along, minding my own business, making good progress on this:

Trying to stitch faster so I can work on more projects from this:

While munching on a big stack of these:

(The Pioneer Woman Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies)

And then...I saw this
was available for download here.
And all I can think of now is this
What a great issue!  At least as far as my tastes go. 
Usually I see about 6 or 8 ornaments in these special issues that I want to stitch which is still a value when you consider the price of the magazine vs the price of single patterns.  This morning I printed off 14 designs that I will stitch and there are 4 more on the maybe list.  This is in addition to the 3 or 4 designs I have on my wish list from the recent market.
There is no hope for me is there?

So this afternoon after I finish grilling up the hamburgers and hot dogs I will be firmly ensconsed in my happy chair for about 4 hours cheering for these guys

and stitching as fast as I can!

P.S. The pincushion blog hop starts Tuesday.  I hope you will stop by to see what I have created.  :o)
Here is the full schedule:

Enjoy your Sunday of stitching and football.

Have fun with the blog hop. I've done two of them with Madam Samm. She's such a sweet lady. :-)

Beautiful progress on your crow! :D My mom's from North Carolina, and my husband is obsessed with football, so we settled in to watch the game too last night. I think they did well, considering! It was a tough game.

Your stitching is fabulous, Myra! I really love that pattern. That plate of cookies looks wonderful and I agree, the cost of the magazine is well worth it!

Now you make me think I need to get that magazine!! Each year I do a Halloween design for my Grandson so I'm thinking my new little Granddaughter will get a Christmas ornament each year. I so love the Halloween design you are stitching on right now.

Penny said...

Glad to know the issue can be downloaded. :) Love your current project! And I don't think you are the only one that is without hope. :)

Chris said...

Wonderful update Myra. I love this design, the colors, everything about it.
That is quite a stack of ornaments to stich, I know that you will knock them out.
The cookies look amazing.
I hope that you have a great week!!
