I've got to tell you: I have wanted to stuff this project in a drawer lately and start something else. Why? Because it's almost done, and I'm apparently secretly opposed to finishing things. Commitment problems? Not me--just ask my boyfriend of 15 years! Pink Dress looks a little like an alien now, doesn't she? I was going to stitch Roswell alien eyes on her, and then decided I didn't want to frog them back out. She needs some hair still, and so does he. Should be done tomorrow...maybe.
I asked myself on the way to work this morning: Can I actually finish this project and move on, and I got an answer immediately. I should have asked something harder.
Isn't this a nice, serene early-morning shot of the Lincoln Memorial from the bus window? As you can imagine, though, DC is anything but serene these days. In fact, it's Crazy Town. The Pres-Elect and his family are staying in a hotel nearby, and the secret service has shut down the surrounding streets, which has a huge impact on traffic. You may have heard the controversy over the fact that they're slamming the bridges shut between Virginia and DC on Inauguration Day. That's ok with me; I'm going to be home, warm and cozy and working on my newest stitching project while a zillion people get in line for the porta-potties. Our office is always closed for inaugurations, since we're across the street from the White House, and it is difficult to get to our building through security.
You bunny owners know what Pink's doing here, don't you?
Pink: "What!? I'm just looking in my pocket for my cell phone!"
"I'm busy chewing my lucky rabbit foot."
