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.

Last night I started the Beaded Accessories, another SNS class from Jackie du Plessis.

When I was trying to arrange my bead tray and the linen and the chart and everything else for the most efficient way to work, I came to the realization that there is Just. Too. Much. Stuff. in my corner.

There are project bags and finishing supplies and stretcher bars and scroll frames and a couple of reams of paper that need to be slid into page protectors and filed in their class notebooks. I am beginning to feel more than a little overwhelmed by the whole situation.

So I'm taking a couple of days to get at least this much organized before I am lost in an avalanche of needlework.  We are assuming it will take a couple of days. If my estimates on organization are as unrealistic as the amount of time I think any needlework project will take, it may be a couple of weeks.

Anyway, if the blog is quiet for a day or two (or ten),  you know what's going on.

I hope I know what I'm getting into.

  1. We all have to recognize that moment when push comes to shove and we must shovel out the debris so we can continue with our magnificent needlery.
    (Didn't that sound like such a PR exposition for "clean out this shit and get on with stitching"?) Not being the world's finest house keeper, I feel your pain.
