SAP's turned into BAP's

Well, I must admit that Thursday I didn't stitch at all. I was good, and worked on homework, and read Harry Potter on my study breaks. Because!!! I knew that this weekend was a long one, so I worked hard on schoolwork Thursday, then I went to classes yesterday and in the afternoon, after and hubby ran a few errands, and afer dinner in the evening, hubby went in and played his game on the computer and I.....


I watched T.V and started (gulp...a day early!) my September freebie by Erica Micheals! And! I have decide that I really love series! Series of books and stitching series. At RainbowGallery, E. Micheals has two yearly series, the one I am currently working on as well as another one, and of course her wonderful Alphabet mini sampler series too! I have decided to take on ALL THREE!!!! And each one will be made into a quilt! Sooooo....I have quite a goal going on here.

Plus! I decided to do a snowman ornament series from one of my ornament books, as well as a Santa ornament and Winter Fun (different ornies depicting cute animals doing fun wintery things!) ornament series also.

Ok, I can only say that those of you who read my blog know I love BAP's! lol!! SO!!! Now I am taking some SAP's (Small @$$ projects) and turning them into BAP's!!!! Wish me luck...I think I will need it!

Of course I also will be working on some BAP's as well, afterall those WIP's will capture my attention again at some point, I'm sure.

So, I had recently lost my stitching mojo in lieu of schoolwork and this thing we call life, and with this new venture, I am once again EXCITED about my stitching!!!

Love the fall look of your blog!

Glad you got all of your school work out of the way so you could enjoy your evening of stitching! That sounds so decadent to me at this point... I need one of those ;)

I'm the same way with BAPs... I love them and I seem to turn small projects into BAPs (like my LK afghan lol).

That's a great idea for the stitching series! I love your new background. I hope you're able to fit in stitching more often!

I love the Erica Michaels alphabet freebies - great idea to turn these into a quilt!

That's wonderful that you could get all that stitching time in. Sometimes a mega dose of stitching is just what you need. Turning the small projects into a big one should be fun. You'll get the immediate gratification of a finish when each small is done, and then get a feeling of accomplishment all over again when you put them all together for the finished piece.
