The other day I accidentally found myself in my local craft store and then I accidentally found myself purchasing all the necessary items for my Lissandrea project....ooops!!! I am so excited about this pattern and I can't get it out of my head. I've already decided that I would finish Oriental Fan and then complete The Elegance of the Orient before moving on to Lissandrea but the temptation is intense! That pattern is positively screaming to me and now that I have all the necessary materials to complete it I'm having issues with self restraint! I must be strong!

As an aside, I'm not sure if I felt worse for the cashier or the grumpy person behind me in line when I was having my items rung through. The poor cashier had to individually scan all five million skeins of floss while the woman behind me tapped her toe, huffed a lot, and looked at her watch every other second! I thought crafty people were more patient?!

I never got dirtier looks in my life than I did when Wal-Mart was clearancing out their DMC for 10 cents a skein and I went to the register with something like 500 skeins of floss. For some godforsaken reason, the cashier insisted on ringing them out individually even though they were coming up "Clearance - .10" for every single skein. I was in fear for my life from the people behind me. LOL

Patient? Are you kidding me? Haven't you ever gone crazy from wanting to do every other project you have lined up, instead of the one you feel is taking forever?

Or is that just the way I feel about things? hehe...
