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.

Not gonna happen

 I believe I mentioned that I planned to spend the entire day with needle in hand.

I believe that I have mentioned in the past that I shouldn't even try to plan when it comes to my needlework.

Dearly Beloved has had a couple of falls when his knee completely gave way, and we ended up spending the day dealing with that. An MRI is planned, but the initial assumption is a torn meniscus. He has a brace to help stabilize the knee until the ortho guy has a chance to review X-rays and the MRI results.

This has taken all day.

All day.

I just tried to thread a needle through the pointy end instead of the eye end. I believe that is a message to put the project bag away and do a load of laundry, or dust, or scrub counter tops, or something else requiring little thought. This is definitely the night to crack out the emergency frozen pizza.


  1. So sorry for your husbands fall.
    You never know when things like this will happen .
    Hope it soon mends .
    I didn't get much stitching done yesterday , I wanted to then hubby asked if I could take cutting of some of our flowers to save for next year , so I was up in the garden most of the day.
    It was so mild it was a good day to do it.
    He will treat me for lunch today so I could not say no.
    I won't have to cook tonight so I can get my stitching catch up then ha.
    Enjoy a peaceful day hugs June.

  2. Oh Ann, I'm very sorry about your husband's knee issue. Best laid plans....
