Drive by post

I’m still working on Alpine Seasons and although I’ve put  many many hours into it over the last week, it still barely looks like I’ve done anything…  all I have is a confetti-ish sprinkling of stitches over the area I’m working on.  At this point, its not even worth an updated picture.   Right now I’m working a color that has some big blobs in addition to confetti, so maybe the big blobs will warrant a picture?

I am determined to finish up the confetti on this section before I move on to something else.  I fear that if I don’t, it could be another year before I pick it up again.  I keep thinking of how spectacular it will be when finished and NOT think about the fact that I started this 5 years ago.  It is easily my longest period of WIP status ever.  I need your comments to encourage me!

 The previous record for longest WIP ever was ~2 years and that was the Indigo Rose Desiderata Sampler.  Since the picture was taken, I’ve taken the framing apart and straightened out the block at the very top which was the result of poor lacing by a framer that I will never use again.  (Her shop has since gone out of business).  The bottom of this was also modified as I mysteriously ran out of fabric as I got to the bottom of the design.

In other news, after my interview last week it appears that I’m still in the running for the position I applied for.  I’m impressed by the company and would love to work there.  So, I’m on step 2 of a 4 phased interview process.  Wish me luck!

  1. Think like the little engine that could – “I think I can, I think I can…” and before you know it, you’ll be done.

    You should definitely share an updated picture, even if you think you’ve made very little progress.

    Good luck with the interview process! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  2. Best of luck with the job! I know confetti is frustrating, but I’m like you, I need to do it before the “fun stuff,” or it will never get done. You can do it!
