In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

A Day Off

I needed a day off from Obligation Stitching.

So I took one.

Actually, I took a day off from stitching.

Sometimes I need to do that.  It helps to remember that there are things to do other than embroider the hours away.  So, I played online for hours, reading a couple of new-to-me blogs and looking at all the Nashville releases.  I finished the book I've been reading. I did almost all the laundry.  There has been a small amount of housecleaning done, enough to keep the Health Department at bay. I talked to Baby Girl for awhile.

Since I'm starting to twitch a little, I think I may pick up a needle.  So this may not entirely be a day off from stitching.


  1. Ann, had a real convulsion when I read "almost all of the laundry"--as a really reluctant laundress (like seamstress), I wondered what percentage "almost all" encompassed? If it were me, it could range from 10% to 85%. How about you? Mary Agnes

  2. ahem . . .half

    "almost all" sounds so much better than half, but in the interest of full disclosure . . .half
