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.

seeing quadruple

Yesterday I spent my stitching time setting up the pieces for the second Winter Casket Toy.

The base set-up for all four pieces is the same so I figured I may as well do them all while I was in the groove.

They kept bothering me, though. I keep thinking they reminded me of something else. It finally hit me. They look like the BB-8 Droid from one of the recent Star Wars movies.

I'm not sure I'm going to do the next step in this project today.  My current book, which started off very slowly, has suddenly picked up speed and I don't really want to put it down for long. I may spend the day with a tall, icy beverage and the book.

The joys of free time . . . as much as I like the structure of a working life, I think I could very possibly enjoy being retired.

  1. So your casket will have a strawberry and a droid. I think you need something else just a touch odd to go with them. Curious to see how this piece will look.

    Maybe you could enjoy being retired - oh my, only maybe? I am so looking forward to being able to stitch, read, garden and work on house projects without work interrupting all my fun.

    Enjoy the book!
