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.

The plan was to leaf out the tree on Eve in the Garden today.

We got sidetracked.

  • Dearly Beloved's car needed its oil changed, so we dropped it off to have that done.
  • We had a list a mile long of essential things--like light bulbs and laundry detergent--so we went to the Big Box Store to take care of that.
  • Sushi and sashimi have been calling my name, and Dearly Beloved loves real ramen of the slurpable variety as opposed to the college student staple type--so we went to our favorite Japanese restaurant for lunch. They were very busy, so it took longer than usual.
  • I had an urge to bake a cake. This happens only rarely since we no longer live with ravenous teen-agers.
  • The usual week-end household chores needed to be accomplished.
Thus, no new leaves can be seen on the tree.  There is still tomorrow.

I did do a little week-night stitching the last few evenings, though.

This is part of Catherine Theron's Early Spring Lambs needlebook. I do so love the soft pastels used in this--and somehow it seems appropriate for the season.

And I most definitely see hopping from one project to another in my future for a bit. I am making no plans, setting no goals, just playing in the stash.

This may be a symptom of spring fever.

  1. Such a sweet design. Have you stitched the Home Sweet Home sewing case? I always think this looks like a companion piece (love her designs!).
