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.

Good Intentions

I planned to work on Martha Edlin all day today.

I got sidetracked.

In cleaning out my little corner, which was acting like the Blob and spreading out with the intention of taking over the world, I realized I was a couple of months behind in filing the information I've printed out for the Cabinet of Curiosities class. I had a stack of papers several inches tall. I also had some newsletters from the various guilds I belong to that I wanted to hang onto because of information about upcoming events and they needed to be filed.

So I started inserting pages into page protectors and putting them into their notebooks, and filing the pertinent parts of the newsletters away, which meant I had to scan each newsletter to figure out why I wanted to hang onto it, and then I started reading as much as I was filing and inserting, and the next thing I knew the afternoon had pretty much evaporated.

And I'm only about halfway through the stack.
