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.

Back in the Rut Again

We are back home again--actually, we've been home--but there was all the going-back-to-work, and laundering piles of clothes, and catching up on chores that didn't get done since we were away. There is also a stack of newspapers and mail to get through, but that will all wait for the week-end.

And it didn't take long to fall back into the routine.  Today was typical:

  • go to work
  • come home
  • take a walk to get the work day out of my head
  • chores
  • dinner
  • shower
  • play online for a few minutes
  • and stitch
This is what I managed to accomplish last night:

I'm back to Morning Has Broken.

And I will warn you right now--for the next week or so--or until I get the border done, I am going to be deadly dull and boring. It will be border, border, and more border.

Ironically, I am thoroughly enjoying this and don't find it boring at all. In fact, I'm having a wonderful time with leaves and tendrils and so forth and so on.

Dearly Beloved is mentioning padded rooms again.


  1. Well, at least it's a pretty border! I don't find it boring at all. I really like "morning has broken" and will enjoy all of your progress reports.

  2. Uh, oh. They have padded rooms where I really don't want one.

  3. It feels like you never had a break, isn't it?? Lovely progress on the stitching!
