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.

A unicorn

 In one of the cross stitch groups I belong to, a unicorn is that chart or pattern or kit or design that is (usually) out of print or so rare that it's as elusive as a unicorn.

I have several unicorns I'd love to find, and last week I found one:

Fenwick is a kit from Elsa Williams that is probably forty or fifty years old. I always loved the design, but never had the chance to buy it when Elsa Williams products were in existence. But--aha!--it appeared on the Bay of Evil, and I spent way too much for it, but it's now in my possession.

I've always said that if I'm meant to have something, it will eventually come my way--even if it takes decades to arrive!
