A Little Vacation WIP-ing

My friends know me so well.  Gaidig has DARED me to finish the mohair sweater before starting the purple one, and I think we all know that I'm enough of a child to totally get into this, so I have been diligently wrestling with mohair.  And when I've needed a break....
I have been working on THE most pathetic WIP I have.  A pair of EZ's mitered mittens in colors I love that inexplicably were started in October and have been languishing as little more than a cuff for months.  They are now cruising along and THIS time I'm taking decent notes so I don't have to examine the first pair of mittens every 5 minutes to see what I need to be doing.  Honestly--7 months for a pair of mittens?????  That's insane.  In fact, almost as insane as..........
the cross stitch!  As a severe Type-A personality, once in a while I think it's good for me to do something on a vacation that isn't productive at all, and what fits the bill better than cross stitch?  I just finished thread number SIX for the year on it--which is probably a new record for me--and only have 6 more to go.  Just look at all the progress since the start of 2011:
At this rate, I should finish this baby up when I'm 115.  Good thing I eat healthy..........
