Queen of Procrastination and Princess of Perpetual Projects


Queen of Procrastination pdf


Princess of Perpetual Projects pdf

Anyone who knows me at all, will tell you that these titles are richly deserved. I excel in both areas, as my son is so quick to point out. So in typical fashion, these charts are not really finished - they are works in progress - and I will continue to work on them, but in the meantime, I thought I would post them "as is." I would love to see what all the creative stitchers out there can do with them - they cry out for buttons, beads and embellishments! Crowns for the Queen, tiaras for the Princess?

LOL! Queen of Procrastination definitely applies to me! Thankfully I've been very strict on myself and have been working on one project at a time :D
Will definitely be sharing this blog post!

Aury said...

I love it!!!! I need to put this on my room :D

I hope that you are feeling better,

Berit said...

Oh, the shame!

I'm not sure which one applies to me more! I've really been working on my procrastination (though perhaps not getting anywhere), so I'm gonna go with "Princess of Perpetual Projects". This SO fits me! And I'm not even talking about xstitch!

It's so good read a blog from you, Sharon. Now, back to my "finishing" on this floss tag! I've been to anxious about it to do it the last week!

These are so me!!!!! I have to put them in my rotation....maybe a needlebook, maybe a fob...oh, wait, maybe both.
Thanks for the designs you give us.

Diana said...

LoriRay said...

I am a procrastinator, too, but I'll worry about that later. (LOL!!!)

Thanks for the charts! Hope your leg and finger are healing quickly. And get well soon from the piglet flu! It's time to be healthy and injury-free for a while. :)

Hi, Monique! Queen of Procrastination means the Queen of putting things off, delaying the start of something - and Perpetual Projects means projects that are never finished, continuing forever or indefinitely. Hope this helps.

Koningin van Procrastination: de Koningin om dingen uit, het uitstellen van de start van iets - en Perpetual Projecten middel van projecten die zijn nooit klaar is, blijven voor altijd of voor onbepaalde tijd. Hoop dat dit helpt.

Monique said...

Hi. I have just found your Blog for the first time. I love your simple patterns and I am definatly a procrastinator, it's what I am doing now, I should be cleaning or stitching. Your patterns would look lovely made with beads.

Bibbi Maria said...

Wow! This is really wonderful! My mom and I have recently started a Blog where we want to forward people to places where they can access to patterns for free and in some measure also for payment. So it+s ok if I use some of your immages lnking to you once in a while?

Our Blog is www.korsstygnsarkivet.blogspot.com

I've been blogging a lot more, but I still treasure my first fob/finsh, which was made from your generous I <3 Cross stitch pattern. :)
