"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Can we say overcommitted?

I have come to the conclusion that I am a glutton for punishment. In addition to launching my cross stitch design business, I also recently took over as administrator of the Cross Stitch Crazy board. Tonight's Show & Tell will also reveal another little side project I've taken on. I have an ongoing secret project for someone we all know and love (email me if you want in on the secret). And, then there are the projects I've committed to or have waiting for me to return too (WIPs otherwise known as Works in progress). I made the mistake of listing these all today and I scared myself...

You are crazy, but why is that you're just realizing that now, and your readers have known it for sometime???? Silly you.

Have fun juggling all the things you've got on the go.

I notice on your stitching list, You Are My Sunshine. I wanted to stitch that one for my oldest daughter since I used to sing it her to put to her to sleep when she was a little girl. Awwww, the memories.

Dang girl! You are a busy lady! i don't blame you one bit for not doing the quilt along. there's always next time. Plus if you're doing it, how are you going to answer any number of my emails asking for help?

I see all your posts with pics of your cross-stitch creation and wonder how you do it. Now I see everything else you do, plus manage the King Street Players, and have decided you must take what those long-distance truck drivers do.
