Stitcher's ADD continues

Well, as you can see I still haven't been able to focus on a single project.  I have 3 new starts with really good intentions.  I hope I can finish something soon.

On Friday night we went to my inlaws for a passover seder.  Below are pictures of the seder plate as well as the table set for 17.  We had a good time and the kids enjoyed hunting for the afikomen.  My little one was the winner. I have been reading about all of the wonderful ways that everyone celebrates Easter.  Thanks for sharing.

 I wanted to let all of you know that Rio found her forever home on Saturday and all the kittens are doing well in their new homes.  We have started the baseball madness and I have been running here, there and everywhere.  Unfortunately, last Tuesday I had someone run into my car.  I understand everyone is busy and in a hurry but had this person just slowed down a little I wouldn't  have $4,000 worth of damage on my car.  I was completely frustrated by it.  Oh well, at least no one was hurt.  That's the most important bit. Well, off I go with the car pool.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching!

oh my! Too bad about your car! Hope they had insurance! Maybe if you didn't start all BIG pieces you would have more interest... Just a thought! I know I break it up! Have fun being the baseball mom! Hugs!

Lovely starts!!! So sorry to hear about your car...that is very frustrating. I hope it is fixed soon.

That is a beautiful seder plate. Even though we are Christian we have celebrated a seder a couple of times before; it is a wonderful ceremony. My hubby and I both LOVE charoset! =)

Me too on jumping from project to project and starting more things! I'm chalking it up to spring fever for now!

Sorry about your crash. Have you noticed how many people are doing crazy things to try to save a few seconds? Annoying.

The Seder plate is very interesting. Will have to learn more.

Have fun at baseball.

Thank goodness no one was injured, everyone should just slow down. I think I have caught stitcher's ADD too. Keep starting things and haven't finished much. All of your stitching is fantastic.

Krista said...

All lovely starts, Nataly! I have been the same way too lately, not finishing and just starting = lots of WIPs! Have a great week.

Look at all those lovely stitches on your starts! Your Passover meal looks scrumptious. Just seeing the tables cape I can image it was a joyous day with all of the family around the table.

Veronica said...

Beautiful stitching, Nataly. What a lovely Easter meal. The table setting looks so pretty. Sorry to hear about the accident.


Lesleyanne said...

Glad to hear you are okay but I can understand why you are frustrated. Lovely new starts. The table looks great.

Chris said...

Your projects are all looking great Nataly. I am sure that you will have some finishes soon.
It looks like you had a wonderful Passover.

Shirlee said...

Nataly ... It sounds like you have more on your plate now than what's appearing on that seder plate! I admire you for being able to give attention to all the now things & all the future things as well! Your starts look wonderful but I must admit that the men in the white coats would have to come & take me away if I had 3 stitching projects going at the same time ... lol!

Carol said...

Such pretty projects you have going, Nataly, and I enjoyed seeing photos of your inlaws passover foods (Had to Google "afikomen"!)

I'm glad no one was hurt with the car run-in; but you certainly didn't need another thing added to your already busy "to-do" list! Hope your vehicle is fixed quickly...

Catherine said...

What great projects you have started!
A beautiful table you had for your meal.
Sorry to hear about your car! I can completely understand the hectic baseball schedule ~ I had five boys piled into my car tonite to take!

Stitching Noni said...

Lovely new starts. I'm so pleased to hear that no one was hurt but I can understand your frustration at getting hit by a distracted driver! Take care

Jenny said...

Oh no - that sucks about the car! The crazy racing on the roads always gets me too - slow down people!

Good to hear that the kittens have new homes and all your new starts look wonderful! Great picks all, but my favorite hands down (patiently waiting in my stash) is Elizabeth Mears!

Anne said...

Beautiful WIP's you started! I love the seder plate!! I'm glad no one got hurt in the accident. Those are always so scary.

Your new starts look lovely.

orry to hear about your car.

Teresa said...

Well at least you have good intentions. Love all the starts.
We learned in church before Easter about the seder dinner. So nice to see your table and plate.

Your seder meal looks lovely! As Christians we have also celebrated with this type of meal. The past two years however our church has had a Galilean meal which consists of lamb meatballs, lentils, rice with chick peas, and lots of olives, dates, figs, and dried apricots. It is a meal we all share in the preparation of.
