June Goals ???

What happened to June? I woke up this morning, and it's JULY?!?! Already? The year is really flying by. However, my stitching is NOT keeping up. I didn't do ONE thing on my June Goals list. Not one blessed thing. I did finish the stitching for one exchange, and sent that with two other pieces I had previously finished to Vonna, the Twisted Stitcher, to work her magic. I made a million hexies, which I now have to do something with.... I sort of started the BBD Anniversaries of the heart, but I hate fighting with that 1/2 yard of fabric, and DH hasn't had the time to sort out a scroll frame for me. I think that I'm going to break out my quilting frame and give that a try. At least to get some progress, even if I have to dismantle it each time. (ugh!) I'm not posting any more goals. My only goal is to progress. It doesn't matter on which projects, just so long as at least one item gets finished per month, even if it's really small.

I know what the problem is, you see, I have an addiction. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Real Housewives.

I know, it's total trash. My DH thinks I've lost my mind, and I can't bear to admit it to my mother and father. (All that education to watch the Real Housewives?!) But, what can I say? It's like crack, or at least catnip. I find myself waiting for the new episodes to air, wondering what crazy thing they're going to do next. I've even watched the Bethany spin off show. I tried to explain it to DH by saying that it's similar to watching a soap opera. I'm enthralled with these women, but I don't actually think they live that way. I mean, it's not like you would believe that Beau really killed Hope, but you can't rip your eyeballs away, even as you hear the sound of your brain cells dying in agony.

So, hopefully the Housewives will keep the trash talk to a minimum so I can get some stitching done this month. (Although I don't think so... heehee)

I hope that our friends to the north had a wonderful day to celebrate their fine nation, even if McGill didn't let me in when I applied for college. ;-) I hope that all my fellow Americans enjoy either 4th of July celebrations, and that you stay cool in the shade!

Also, I'll be holding my drawing on July4th, and will hopefully post the winners that night. If not, I'll post the morning of the 5th. Good Luck!! Duke is looking forward to helping me choose your prize. He's been rooting around looking for the good stuff, and I think he's got a pile going. :)


  1. I have never made goals because the minute I do some inner demon sets me on the road to failure. Plus I have crafter's ADD and just don't stick with anything for too long.

    I don't watch much TV so don't even know what the Real Housewives is. Maybe I should look it up.

  2. I watch them too. They make me feel somehow better about my life.

  3. Rachel- I completely agree! If that's what crazy looks like, then I must notbe, because I'm not anything like that. LOL


Thank you for your kind words! They really make my day. :)
