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.

Technology is my friend . . .

Technology is my friend, technology is my friend, technology is my friend. . .

Maybe if I say it enough, I'll believe it.

I embroider.  I like to embroider.  I like the rhythm, the pace.  I like to embroider.  A lot.  There are times I think I may have fallen into the 17th century (with side trips into the 18th and 19th), and I can't get out.  The main things I like about living when I do are modern plumbing, modern medicine, and the modern idea that people may not be discriminated against on the basis of race, creed, or gender.

I've resisted a blog for awhile, because it involves technology.  I remember when computers took up whole rooms and were programmed (somehow) by the use of cards that were punched with arcane symbols and one punch when you didn't mean it meant the whole program failed.  I still require tech support (aka daughter) for most anything that involves the computer.  The IT folks at work think I'm a total moron when it comes to my simple little laptop.

But here I am.  I'm still trying to figure out how to get a picture on this silly thing, and personalize it, and make it a place you'd like to visit.  Bear with me.  It will happen.  Eventually.  Meanwhile, I think I'll go embroider.
