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.

Ornamentation Not

I went digging into the fabric stash last night because I knew, just knew, that I had put all my holiday and Christmas fabrics in a very specific place. I knew this with no doubt in my simple little mind.

Apparently my simple little mind then decided somewhere else was a better place and moved it and didn't bother to remember where.

However, I did find a couple of things that I may be able to use:

For some reason, they're reading orange-ish in the photo; they're actually both truly red.

So I was set to do some finishing tonight--at least that was the plan last night.

I have been promising Dearly Beloved that I would make lasagna this week. I was thinking in terms of this week-end, but he took the meat and sauce out of the freezer to thaw overnight in the frig, so when I got home, there it was, all ready to be assembled.

Which meant that I constructed a pan of lasagna tonight instead of stir frying chicken and snow peas and some other stuff--which would have taken far less time--and by the time that was done and in the oven and I had talked to Baby Girl and Mother on the phone and done a couple of things around the house, I had lost all motivation to cut and sew.

So I dug out another Christmas ornament to work on. This is another Jackie du Plessis kit, one I bought in the boutique last year and have had aging in the stash since.  It is easy to stitch and blissfully repetitive and about what my simple little mind can handle at the moment.

So I am going to stitch a few more snowflakes and go to bed early and hopefully either deck the Christmas tree or make ornaments to do so tomorrow.
