it's coming along very slowly; and I tell self that it's to do with having been very busy at the office and a work schedule that has been different, but then I get to thinking about these words 'very slowly''very busy', by whose standards any of these?  and in a flash I'm looking down at myself and I find I'm smiling and shaking my head for entertaining these thoughts; there is nothing 'very slowly' about it, nor has the office been 'more or less busy than usual', it's all in MY head, apparently I have unspoken expectations and when things don't happen 'fast' enough - even though I haven't defined the outcome or time frame - I feel prone to pass judgment! 

light bulb moment: this is how the mind tricks you into following a dead end path resulting perhaps in dissatisfaction, how you could experience a sense of disappointment for no reason whatsoever, no reason whatsoever.

so, the piece is coming along nicely, exactly as it should be going, period. I particularly like how the thread changes colours, from black to blue to green

Its coming along very nicely, funny how your brain messes up your head sometimes.

Wishing there was less time needed for work and more time available for play seems perfectly reasonable to me.
Still, I think the subconscious mind uses fallow time in order for stitches to evolve as beautifully as these.

It is beautiful...and yes, coming along just as it should, just as it is.

The three animals on their way to bremen, right?

Stitching is slow...that is what I like about it. You can only take one at a time. You are right about the chorus of judgemental voices (at least I have a chorus) always shouting about how things should be done faster or better. Congratulations on discerning the hollowness of their message. I love the animals...the dog is especially descriptive...and the changing colors of thread.
