OK - I'm sitting here at 10:13 at night knowing I should post something for my finished objects....
Well, today, I'm calling buying a house a finished object. Yup. Indeed I am.
We have spent the last 45 days filling out papers, sending in forms, printing, signing, copying, scanning, emailing, calling, texting, running, worrying, praying, and cursing the entire process that comes along with buying a house. Today, we finally sat back (for a brief moment before the paint-a-palooza started) and signed the last paper and had the keys dropped into our hands.
It was, in a way, like a dreadful, intricate thread project for me. I am not a fan of working with thread but there are SOOOOO many projects that I love. So what I do is - tackle those one at a time, leaving enough time between projects to forget just how much I detest working with thread.
Don't ask - it somehow works for me.
So I get the thread and I have an excitement brewing inside of me. Then I start hooking away at the thread and realize that it may be a little more tedious than I figured on. And by the time I'm a few hours into it, I'm cursing it. Then angry that I love the pattern so much that I must keep working on it until its done but hate it.
And in the end, when I tie off the last knot and weave in the last tail, there is that moment of satisfaction that I finished it. I finally finished it.
And much like buying a house, after sitting there those few moments realizing we now need to go paint - I remember that thread requires blocking.
Thanks for reading my ramble.
Sorry I'm pictureless today. I didn't think about it and it's late. Do forgive me. :)
