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.

Oh, Tannenbaum

And this made my decision for me.  We went out and dragged a Christmas tree home, which appears to be tilting in this picture but actually isn't--at least, I don't think it is.

After wrestling with the tree stand, Dearly Beloved is not inclined to wrestle with the lights tonight, so I am just breathing in the aroma and getting things together to start putting the Christmas ornaments I've been stitching together.

Yes, I've made up my mind as to what I will be working on for the next few days. I am twisting cording and cutting comic book boards and deciding what fabric to put on the backs of the things I've stitched. I thought I had put all my Christmas fabrics in a very specific place, but I looked there . . . and it isn't there.

The search and destroy mission is now underway.


  1. Ah, I do miss the aroma of a wonderfully fresh Christmas tree.
    Sniff a few extra times for me.

  2. Ann, that is exactly what I should be doing - finishing and framing things up...I don't think I will have the peace of mind to that anytime soon so things will continue to languish in drawers etc.
