The deadline for my entry forms to the county fair was missed. We took the kids on a much needed outing and it slipped my mind. Yes, I probably should have taken care of it beforehand. It just didn't seem to be too much of a priority. This year the fair seemed to arrive much sooner than I expected it to. There honestly wouldn't be enough time, and I would just end up stressing myself out. This doesn't mean I'm not going to finish my projects. I will work on them when I find some time to spare, or the inclination to pick up my shuttles.
There has been progress on the Tatbit challenge piece. And a set back. I seemed to have joined the three ring chains to the wrong part of the butterflies. Three little rings, such a nuisance to fix. I was working it continuous thread method on each fan cluster. Cutting them off and still leaving enough of a tail to sew in later, just seems like too much work right now. The monotony of working with one solid color is also slowing me down. After only two motifs, the patterns are blending into one another and I'm joining where I shouldn't because I can't tell up from down. Something this complex in design needs color.
I did receive some not so good news from the doctor's recently. While I'm currently dangling between knowing it's not good and not knowing the extent of the damage, my mind is preoccupied. You know it's bad when they call you within an hour of getting the results back themselves. I have a few more days to wait to find out what's going on and listen to possible solutions. They just wanted to make sure they had me scheduled as quickly as possible, and to make sure I actually show up. I'm very forgetful and unless I put the appointment into my phone's calendar with a ring tone reminder, I completely forget. Today we go to my Grandmother-in-law's for her grandchildren roundup. She wants all her grandkids and great grandkids together for picture taking and a little picnic.
