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.

Edith Ann

If you are of a certain age, you will remember a character that Lily Tomlin portrayed on a TV show called Laugh In.

Right now, I sound like Edith Ann did.

This cold has grabbed me and won't let me go. I finally gave into better living through modern chemistry and drugged myself up last night so I could sleep. That helped. Some.

Anyway, nary a needle has been threaded nor stitch stitched since Sunday. It doesn't look promising for tonight, either.

So I'm just going to take my stuffy red nose and watery eyes and pity party to my corner and whine quietly to myself.


  1. Oh no! (and now you need to make room for a ... giant rocking chair, wasn't it?)

    Lots of sleep and quiet days for you - hope you feel better soon!

  2. You poor thing! Hope you feel better soon. This Winter has certainly seen a huge number of nasty bugs & viruses around!
