Here there be dragons...

"I'm telling you stories. Trust me." - Winterson

Stupid should hurt ;-P

So one of my goals for this year was to finish the three stabbies I have in progress (2 that are large and challenging and 1 that's easy but grounded ;-P).  And if I were super ambitious, maybe start some of the patterns I've purchased and not come close to starting.   All good right?

In related news - I'm pretty good about checking the size of patterns and determining if I care *that much* about doing it.   Since the vast majority of my patterns end up in a drawer, I tend to go for small by default.  Quick wins are good for my mental health :) 

So what have I done?   Totally fallen in love with and purchased a new pattern without checking the size...  And you know, the fact that the options were large or extra large probably should've been a clue...   Alas, I have first day back at work brain and am now the proud owner of a pattern that when complete will be approximately 48cm x 76cm (~19"x30" for my US friends) -- and that's just the stitched portion (eg, doesn't incl space for framing etc.   

So yeah - a few years from now you might get to see this one.

It'll be awesome though.   Stay tuned ;-P
