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.

Back in the Saddle Again

I took a day off from stitching so I could figure out what I really wanted to work on, and it helped. What I figured out is that I want to continue working on all the stuff by my chair, but I want to change the emphasis a little until I see some headway. I even worked out something of a schedule for my week when I don't have other commitments.

So of course, next week, I have several commitments.

Anyway, I'm going to try it out for a bit and see if it works.

And I have stitched just a wee bit this afternoon:

This will become the scissors sheath that goes with the Stitcher's Envelope.

I did have inspiration to thread up my needle again. Jackie du Plessis is in town to teach Ode to my sampler guild, and I went to help set up the room for the class. I've missed going to sampler guild so much, and it was so good to see people from that group again, and I came home ready to go--which, of course meant that I had phone calls from The Saint and the Big Kid's Wife and Baby Girl.

But, hey, I stitched between conversations and will stitch again tonight! That's a win.
