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.

What doesn't happen

This is what my traveling project looked like before we left to visit The Flash.

This is what it looked like by the time we got home yesterday.

Obviously I didn't have much time to stitch.

I did get a little stitched last night between certain Domestic Diva activities that had to be accomplished.

I've started the roses around Briar Rose. I work a few outlines, then go back and fill in the petals. This is going to take awhile, I'm afraid.

The stitching portion of this blog is now over and onto a grandchild story.

The Flash informed me that he was going to be through with kindergarten very soon, and that he was going to first grade. It soon became obvious that he thinks that he will finish with kindergarten on Friday and begin first grade the following Monday. I do not envy The Big Kid or The Big Kid's Wife, who will have to deal with his disappointment.

They have already figured out a number of activities for the summer for him, since a busy Flash is a happy Flash. I just don't think they've realized that they need to have something major planned for the Monday after school ends.

I'm glad I'm a couple of hundred miles away for the first and only time since he was born.


  1. Hey, I've had traveling projects that came home just like that! LOL You would think that I would know better, but I am ever hopeful that I will have just a bit of time to stitch at family stuff.

    LOL at school on Monday...yep, he is going to be a bit disappointed...

  2. Just like I always think I can stitch faster than I actually can, and take on more things than five normal people would think unreasonable . . .

  3. Ha ha, children are wonderful, aren't they?!
