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.

I won, I won, I WON!!!!
I won the scissors stand that was the prize for the last day of Tricia Nguyen's 12 Days of Christmas giveaway!!!
To say that I am excited is an understatement! You must understand, I have been craving one of these stands for years, but the practical Scots-Irish Presbyterian who lives in the back of my head always whispered in my ear that I could buy a yard of linen or a pile of silks that I could then use for my embroidery for the price of the stand.
I've hinted to Dearly Beloved that this would be a lovely gift for a Special Occasion, but his view on needlework is that I'm going to figure out a way to rationalize what I want and get it for myself anyway, so he goes for something else. It doesn't make any difference now, because I WON!
(I very rarely, in fact, pretty much never, win anything, so please pardon my loss of decorum.)
(Maybe you should also forgive my assumption that I ever have any decorum anyway.)
I doubt there will be much embroidery tonight. I'm busy auditioning scissors to see which pair deserves to sit in the stand.
