Always A Way
Pisces Daily Horoscope

You may yearn to utilize your innate resourcefulness today so that you can prove to yourself and others that you have been blessed with a creative streak. However, the skillfulness and cleverness you exhibit when tackling complex problems may actually be a product of a can-do attitude that never shies away from a challenge. This can be the perfect day to plan an impromptu party or tackle repairs in your home, since the intricacy of each of these activities will likely provide you with a great deal of amusement. If you do feel your spirits begin to flag today, just remind yourself that no obstacle is insurmountable.

We are capable of accomplishing almost anything when we believe that achievement is a matter of willpower as well as aptitude. Though we may discover that there are criteria we do not meet as we research the goals most precious to us, we should not let that dissuade us from pursuing our chosen paths. What we lack in experience or training, we make up for in a high level of dedication and a willingness to learn. However, if we want others to give us a chance, we must be forthright about both our weaknesses and our strengths. They will frequently respect us all the more for our honesty, and the regard we have gained in their eyes may be the catalyst that inspires them to take a gamble on us. When you believe that you can meet your objectives today no matter what your limitations, you will do what it takes to succeed without hesitation.

>April is here and it’s still snowing…


Spring does not come to Utah, we have Winter, Summer and Fall. It’s raining outside and supposed to turn to snow. And I still have Winter up on my stitching stand…
Years ago I started using a stop watch when stitching on large projects in order to record the time I’ve spent on them. I’ve almost put another 10 hours in on Winter since I started working on him this round. I did not get any work done on any of the other ponies, in fact they’ve been sitting right here….

Next to my chair. The thing is I’m getting tired of Winter both on my stand and outside my windows. I’m starting to look forward to Spring – both the horse and the season. I’m also getting tired of 40 ct fabric and I’m wondering if I should work on something a bit larger like 18 ct canvas? In other words, should I work on a Needlepoint WIP for a bit or should I finish warping this puppy up?
There’s also an urge to grab something completely new. I’m quelling that urge because I have enough things going and I should finish the ponies before starting to love something new.
