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.

The Moving Experience, Part Two

I have started packing my stash.  A friend asked how many tractor-trailer trucks it would take to transport it all.

I'm thinking at least two.

I'm supposed to be purging, and I have managed to let a few 1970's crewel kits go. Why did we think bright orange and neon yellow fabrics looked like good backgrounds for any design? The problem is that I keep finding more and more and more things I really want to stitch right now.

And I added more this past weekend. I took a break from purging and sorting and packing, and went to Maryland with BDE to take classes with Jackie at the new Salty Yarns.

The classes were, as always, wonderful, and the new shop is phenomenal--definitely a destination shop! The classroom is light and bright, and there isn't a bad seat in the entire room. The only thing that is unchanged is the hospitality offered by everyone involved with Salty Yarns. It remains one of my favorite places for classes.

But I am now back home again, and will start purging and sorting and packing again.

Sigh . . . not much longer . . . 



  1. All the best with your packing , love your new shopping.
    Have fun.

  2. Glad you took a break and had an enjoyable time at Salty Yarns, Ann! Lovely new acquisitions!
