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.

One strand

That's all I've managed to do in the last two days. I've worked in one strand.

Last night was our ANG meeting. It was a stitch-in and catch-up with everyone since the holidays. I took David McCaskill's Journey to work on.

Between the talking and catching up and counting and recounting since I apparently lost the ability to count to twelve last night, I managed to get one strand stitched.

And, come to think of it now that I look at the picture, I didn't completely get that strand worked in.

Sigh . . .

Tonight Dearly Beloved and I have been discussing food. We are planning a trip. When we go on trips, Dearly Beloved plans food. He reads restaurant reviews. He looks at locations. He asks for recommendations from friends. Or if we're returning to a place we've visited before, he ponders previous experiences. Tonight he's been pondering. It has taken my stitching time this evening, since I have to listen to the ponderings and musings and must also offer my opinion.

And since I still apparently can't count to twelve, perhaps that's a good thing.


  1. A stitch is progress :) You'll do better next time!

  2. One strand is better than no strand! I know what you mean about the DH taking your time but its nice that you allowed him that time. There will be more time for stitching tomorrow! Planning food for trips sounds like fun!! Laura

  3. Had to chuckle about the meal planning for your trip. I am fortunate to have a husband who likes food. The bad news is every Sunday morning he wants to plan the week's menus. Sigh! So we do. I admit it makes like easier, but could we wait until midafternoon or just before dinner? Just call me any day and I can tell you what the evening's menu is. Que lastima!
