That peacock is just so beautiful, I can't wait to put in a few stitches on it!

Thanksgiving break turned out to be a Game of Thrones and stitching marathon. It was amazing. I finished a project and got as far as I could through two others before having to stop due to lack of threads. I started another project on an impulse and now I am in love with that one too. Let's view:
1. Faerie Spring Fling is so lovely on Steph's Fabbys's Spring Green. I am missing the beads and kreinik for her wings. I am determined to finish her before the new year. I don't think she will be featured at my wedding but will look wonderful on my walls, regardless.
2. Persephone is also resplendent on Steph's Fabbys's Lilac and is my most favorite project in the history of cross stitching. Yes, you heard that right. It's been kind of a long haul, as I started her in the summer. I ran out of one of the caron waterlilies for the background and I am missing the other waterlilies so I'm just playing a waiting game. She is huge too, like a foot and a half long and 9 inches wide. Something like that. I can't wait to frame her!!
3. New start! Lady Hera and her pretentious peacock will also grace my walls in a few months' time. I am stitching her on Steph's Fabbys Simply Sage. I think it's safe to say that Stephanie Bishop is my supplier. My dealer of deliciously smelling fabrics, if you will. The colors are just so lovely and the fabrics always arrive with the edges serged (finished by stitching the edges so they don't fray)! What a thoughtful touch.
I just started Hera last night and I adore the colors already.
Anyway, here is the finished Promessa with lots of random shots:

Wow!! It feels like it's been forever since I did any stitching! I have been taking my licensure exams which have kept me busy, stressed and unable to focus on anything else. Fortunately, I spent some time this weekend on Spring Fairy and for quite a bit done.

Long story short, it's been a rough couple of years and I need a mental change. I want to create a life worth living and writing about.
I found Joel Runyon's Impossible Blog a few months ago and his sometimes outrageous ideas are always hovering on the edges of my consciousness. Cold shower therapy? Adventure roulette? How badly do I want it? (Answer: Badly, but never enough to stick to a program) What crazy ideas are these!?
