I've been stitching on CtS and only have two and a half columns to do on page 1. It has a lot more black on it than I would have thought, but we'll see how it looks as it goes along.
I've been itching (hence the title of this blog) to start something else. I want to work on something smaller. I have several things lined up, I just need to decide which one.

You would not believe the craziness around here. All the bridges going into D.C. are going to be closed tomorrow to regular traffic. They are closing whole sections of the beltway. I only have to drive one exit on the highway, but I have no idea if it'll be backed up or not. I'm going to leave earlier than usual to get to work. I can always take back roads, but everyone else may be doing that also. My middle sister and her husband were actually able to score tickets to the inauguration. They will be in the standing section, but they will be there. They went out and got long underwear this weekend. LOL! It's going to be cold and when you have to walk about 2 miles to get to your section, well, that will be frigid.
I was watching the news this morning, and to illustrate how inane news people can be, in the list of things you are not allowed to take they includeed "weapons, knives, guns, explosives". Well, duh! Sometimes I wonder about people.

Contemplating the System looks so intriguing. I look forward to seeing more of it as you go along.

I think you definitely need some relief from stitching that piece. Too much of the same color. I say time for a fun finish!

And I'm staying home tomorrow and avoiding all that hoopla! I'm happy to watch it on TV in the warmth of my condo.

Holy smokes, Jan, look how much you've done! Wow!

I can believe the craziness and am very glad I live far, far away from it. (I don't like crowds!)

Working in a few smaller stitches is how I manage to keep sane on the big, endless projects. And LOL about leaving your guns, knives and explosives at home. It leaves so much more room in my purse for a hanky and lipstick if I leave those sticks of dynamite behind!

Ok Speed Racer that is impressive and oh do I know what you are saying about dark colors. The Untold Story is the same way. You are doing great.
I lucked out with the traffic, one good thing about working midnights in the Northern VA area.
