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.

No Good Vacation Goes Unpunished
I took the day off on Monday to do laundry and all the other stuff that usually gets done on the week-end . . .but I wasn't home on the week-end to do them. However, the sun was shining brightly (which hasn't happened often this gray, gloomy winter) and it seemed like a very good idea to stitch while the washer and dryer were churning away.
So I managed to stitch Ann Scutt's Band 7, the first repetition of Band 8 (it's a Montenegrin band that will be repeated as a dividing band for the rest of the sampler), and Band 9--and part of Band 8 (again) and Band 10. And, hallelujah--there was no reverse stitching!
Had Ann misbehaved on these bands as she did on Band 6, she might have been placed in time-out indefinitely. But she behaved very nicely and will stay out to play with a couple of other things that I need to work on in the next couple of weeks.
That is, assuming I have time or energy to stitch. I walked into work on Tuesday to find that my email and inbox had exploded. I have worked late a couple of nights, plus had our sampler guild meeting last night, so stitching time has been nonexistent.
And I am starting to twitch. The week-end cannot come too soon.
