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.

Little bit of stitching

I added a few little bits of stitching to the Honeysuckle:

 Meanwhile, I am re-reading the Sebastian St Cyr series by C.S. Harris. It's been years and years since I read the earliest books and it's almost like reading them for the first time. I highly recommend reading in order since characters are introduced who appear again later.  Anyway, it's set in Regency England with the dashing heir to a title and fortune as the protagonist. And once you start, you can't stop. So, reading is interfering with stitching just a little.

And, by the way, one more day!!! I cleaned out desk drawers today and shredded a small forest of papers which I have moved from desk to desk and office to office for twenty-plus years because I was told they were incredibly important. I have never accessed any of them, so why burden someone else?

My last executive decision!


  1. more day!!!! Celebrate!!!!

  2. All the best for today , you will love your freedom .
    But a warning you do things at a slower pace once you retire .
    So the time still goes fast ha .
    Have fun .

  3. Congratulations on your retirement. I wish you many years of happiness.

  4. Nearly free! That's so exciting.
    Have you read the Royal Spyness mysteries by Rhys Bowen? I think I've reread the entire series three times now.
    The honeysuckle is coming along nicely. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to do bits that are separated by that many squares.
