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.

Drawers and other things

Baby Girl and I have arrived at Salty Yarns, and I have spent the day in class with Betsy Morgan.

And I have a drawer:

Eventually, it will fit into the case that makes up "Can't See the Forest for the Trees."

Picture this: The embroidery is finished. The drawer is assembled. All I now have to do is assemble the case that the drawer slides into and make a scissors fob. This is all incredibly do-able in the very near future. The very near future.

But not tonight. Tonight I am kicking back to work on Briar Rose a little more. I can only handle so much finish-finishing before my head explodes.

As I discovered before, a workshop at Salty Yarns is about as laid back and relaxed as it can be. I know that Sara, Mary, and Sally have been working behind the scenes to create this setting--and boy howdy, do they succeed beyond anyone's expectations.

Baby Girl and I are housed in one of the apartments this time. We have a sitting area and a full kitchen. We have two bedrooms so we aren't rooming together. There is a chair that I want to take home because it is a fantastic stitching chair. Sara provided a fantastic lunch today, and there was a lovely reception last night. I could move in and never leave--remember, there's a fully stocked needlework shop downstairs.

But at the moment, I believe I am going to crawl into my extremely comfortable bed and take a nap.

Life is good.


  1. Glad you are having a good time! Could you share more details about the fantastic stitching chair you want to cart home?

  2. Would they notice if you carried the chair out with your luggage? LOL
