It’s a Conundrum

I finished my second finish and third of the #stitch9challenge
Why did I decide to do this?
In a previous post, I talked about stitching ADHD when I change my mind and do something different.  
This is where there is a conundrum:  torn between what I have committed to do and what I really want to do.
So glad I didn't do Stitch Maynia!
I finished my BBD Merrily, Merrily We Welcome Spring.  
I posted it on Instagram and BBD FB page.   

I also finished my third challenge piece.  
It was a quicky and maybe this weekend I will finish it completely.
It is from Brenda Gervais:  I Rest Thy Needle and there is a fancy little clamp box.  
I have the box but, not the color she used.  
So now more conundrum.
I started Chessie and Me Strawberry Alphabet.  
I should show the picture on the pattern.  
It is set in the sweetest little tray.  
I have ordered it twice from the Attic and I don't know if they lose the order or it takes forever.  
I have given up on them.
When you go to the website where the pattern. comes from, but all there is  are stitching frames!?
Whats up with that.
Don't know how I will finish it.
Then I realized, it wasn't one of the projects I picked for the challenge.
If I'm not going to work on a challenge piece there is something else I want to do. 
Now the conundrum is what to work on.  
I'm thinking I may work on Hawk run since I think I could finish it in a few weeks.  
They go fast!

Bob and I spent much of the day doing yard work. 
I had about 18 plants that needed to get planted, a Henry Hole that needed to be filled in before I moved two perennials that were in too much shade.  
Got that all done and I'm pooped!
My lilacs started blooming this week.  
I brought some in the house and the scent is heavenly!!
That about wraps it up for this week.  
Hope your weekend was great!
Have a wonderful week.  
Keep on Stitching!!


  1. Love your Merrily, congrats Monica! Lilacs are the best:)

  2. Congrats on your finish of Merrily, Merrily, it's beautiful!
    The Brenda Gervais piece is so pretty.
    I have had the same result with the Attic.
    I ordered 1 thing, and it took forever to come in the mail.
    My friend had found a design there that she was looking for, an OOP, for a long time.
    They promised to her, and put it aside.
    When she called back, they had sold it to someone else!
    She was so mad, I would be too.
    Good luck on deciding what to stitch.
    Have a great week!

  3. Monica, congratulations on your finishes! Merrily Merrily looks stunning and the Brenda Gervais piece looks darling. Enjoy your week!
