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.

Already the middle of the month

 How did it get to be the middle of November already?

Despite the fact that it feels like time is getting away from me, I did start and finish a project:

Here's Barbara Jackson's 2020 ornament. The kit arrived a week ago Friday. I plopped myself into the wing chair Saturday morning, and had it stitched by the time I went to bed Saturday night. Then yesterday,  I put it together.

I didn't put the date on this one because I really don't want to remember too much about 2020, which seems to both drag and fly by at the same time.

There has been a little bit of other stitching going on--I've worked more on Catherine Theron's Strawberry Sewing Purse, and I've started putting together the pieces for Jackie du Plessis's Ode to Jane Austen (finally)--which has reminded me that I really need to stitch and assemble projects immediately after taking a class.

But, on with the day. I need to clear the bed in Baby Girl's old bedroom so she'll have a place to sleep when she comes home for our very abbreviated Thanksgiving. I've been using that bed for storage and a staging place for project planning, and there may be about 3 square inches of space left. I don't think she'll fit into that small a space.
