Thank you, from the bottom of my crazypants little heart for all of your encouragement and advice regarding my recent oopsie.
I am fascinated to learn that in three very different cultures there is the concept of "Only the Big Guy is perfect" and that one must include imperfection as a means of humbling oneself.
Well, color me humble.
If only I could have the beauty of the Japanese, the soulfulness of the Navaho, and the piety and simplicity of the Amish....then, I suppose we would really be on to something. For now, though, I am going to leave things as they are and view this piece as a very very good lesson in what happens when you get too big for your stitchy britches.
You see, each evening as I was sitting down to stitch this piece and watch The West Wing, I was secretly feeling quite satisfied with myself that I was tackling such an advnaced piece and following along with such sophisticated dialogue at the same time. I am the walking/talking embodiment of the phrase "Pride goeth before the fall" I suppose, so....lesson learned.
Aunt Chrissy and I have just bid a fond farewell to some stitchy sisters as they head over to Ohio for the EGA Great Lakes Regional Seminar. If there would have been room, I would have hidden in the trunk to go with them, but I think Aunt Chrissy would have realized I was missing by the time she got to the Targets to buy dog food. As it was, we waved bye bye and headed out for a few errands.
I'm now home and back in my comfy clothes and ready to stitch and watch Game of Thrones. I think we're going to do a little binge watching to get caught up in time for the Season Six premier tomorrow night.
Either that or Stewey and I are going to take a nap. We're feeling a bit out of sorts these last few weeks, so maybe what we need to do is go hit the re-boot button and crawl in bed with a book and some sunshine on our faces for company.
That's the report for today, kids. Here's hoping that your weekend is filled with fun and stitches and all things wonderful!
