Unfinished projects.

knitting sketch
Did I mention how much I hate detached (surface) chain stitch? My tudor silk purse has ground to a halt because I've had to unpick the rose so many times already. Don't worry, jennylyle, I'll have it finished by May. And I'm definitely not going to start the next purse before this one is finished.

My on-line chat with bogwitch helped me unblock the impasse I'd hit with chapter 6 of the Family fic. (Thanks bogwitch, you always have so many original ways of looking at things; they're usually pretty funny too, something that my fic is a little short on.) I've got the germ of an idea for another fic investigating a different theme. But when we talked about the number of unfinished fics bogwitch has on the go, I was reminded of my many unfinished embroidery projects, so I've vowed not to start the next fic until Family is finished. Just how long I'll be able to keep to that resolve, I don't know. My notebook is already beginning to fill with lots of little jottings for it.

ETA Thanks to paratti for the heads up about Winding Roads on Sky this afternoon.

Winding Roads...

Be ready to be underwhelmed. though James gives a good performance, the rest? Eh, we'll talk afterward.

And it is weird to see him with dark hair. :)

Humph. Bloody work.

Glad to help (don't worry, I'll be pestering you for help soon enough!)

Is this a reference to missing WR? 'cos it's repeated on Sky Mix at 9.45 tomorrow am.

Pester away any time. I had a great giggle at your AtS/ghostbuster crossover suggestion. (Don't you dare start another fic. We have to sort out this one first!

Yes! I don't think I have that channel, and Bob will be at home watching the news for hours and hours and if I take a sickie he'll be all sarky and the video doesn't tape and... arrgh!!

Shhhhh!!! Unfortunately (fortunately?) I don't have any plot, but I'm thinking...

But mine does. I'll tape it for you. We are going to meet in Dunstable when I get back from France for me to hand over the cider booty, so I can hand the tape over then as well.

I don't have any plot, but I'm thinking...
Now what have I told you about doing that? It's bad for you. Stop it immediately. - I'll tell! Hee

Whilst I am very excited about my silk purse - please do not work those gorgeous little fingers to the bone - you've got to reserve some energy for throwing those ropes in your hopefully soon to be received new gloves - you can't do that if you have RSI from too much stitching!!! love J.
