Crochet Slump

Ever just get in a slump, and have to MAKE yourself do something...even something you love to do? Can't get motivated to crochet. I need to finish designing something I started, and it just lays there, waiting to be finished. I have been stitchin', just not with hook and yarn/thread.

So...making a little progress with this pattern. Cat's Eyes.

Today's Crafty stuff: Not much, someone talk me into crocheting!!

Today's Puter stuff: Designed a bookmark for my friend/co-worker

Today's Cat stuff: Bitty Kitty is about to go get f-i-x-e-d, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, don't tell her!

HUGE ambition!

I have 18 species of hummingbirds that I am graphing for counted cross stitch. Each species will live in a square on an Anne cloth, 18 count, for a counted cross stitch afghan.
I may be through with this piece in 2010..what do you think? I think its a HUGE ambition, as my title says...but ambition is something I'm full of. I'm just not FULL of time to finish all my projects. Maybe when I retire?? I'm still editing almost all of the pieces. Calliope is finished, and about six others.
