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.

No plans ever again

 Once again, I am announcing that I am making no stitching plans ever again.

I had decided to take a day or so off from Tudor stitching after completing the first motif. And I had to wait for the glue to dry, which took longer than I expected.

I had decided to watch the video showing how to stitch the next motif on Saturday evening. Then I could do the prep work and be ready to stitch all day Sunday.

I had not anticipated the storm that knocked out our internet access late Saturday afternoon. I had not anticipated that it would continue to blip in and out most of the day Sunday. I am happy to report that it was back up and has been working consistently all day today, and this is when I managed to get the little bits of velvet cut out and ready to sew.

But that's going to wait until tomorrow morning when I have better light. We're getting another rainstorm and it's getting darker. This is one of those things I can see better in real daylight, rather than artificial light.

So, I'll work on the Stitcher's Envelope again, just as I did over the week-end. At least the next ribbon band shows some progress:

I would say that I'm going to work on the Tudor motif tomorrow morning, but, as I said, I'm making no more plans. Planning doesn't seem to work too well for me.

  1. Our plans seem so doable when we make them. My problem is not sticking to them/making different plans. At least you had a legitimate reason for your plans going awry.
