It must be something in the air....I woke up ornery yesterday and decided that I was going to do whatever the h-e-double toothpicks I wanted to. I managed to kick a few pairs of underpants around the closet floor, throw a tissue at Stewey (he was not amused), and just generally make a mess of myself all day long.

So when it came time to sit down for my evening stitching I looked at my "Rotation Rules" and threw them in the trash! I pulled out LHN "Garden Pleasures" just because I felt like it and stitched away while watching Bette Davis. What a freakin' rebel I am.

(A side note: I do this about once a month or so. My house looks like a fraternity has moved in and I am a beast for about 48 hours. Then I crash back to reality and fret over not being a perfect homekeeper/dog mommy/sister/general member of society, and I clean my act up. But those few days of sitting on my big fat white hairy butt and swearing like a sailor are just blissful.)

Thank goodness I live alone.

So I was reading blogs this morning and was floored by a mention on Laura J. Perin's blog! For me, this is like the best kind of celebrity sighting and I am still floating around like the Goodyear Blimp over it. ME! On Laura J. Perin's blog! Woo Hoo!

That got me to thinking about what I would do if I met/saw any of you other celebrities out there in stitchy blogville. I mean, as far as I'm concerned, you are ALL fabulous in my humble opinion, and I think I would break into a full-on flop sweat and faint dead away if I were to ever meet any of yous. So if you see me in the grocery store, please be gentle and understand that I am rather in awe of/admiration of all of you and your stitching/blogging/commenting abilities. Remember....it took me a YEAR to get up the guts to come out of the lurking portion of the program, so when I tell you that I think you're all famous and intimidating, I mean business!

Chrissy and I are off tomorrow to Shereville, Indiana for a stitchy day with the NANI girls and Laurie from La-D-Da designs! Stay tuned for news at 11!


  1. I'm not likely to run into you in the grocery store, but maybe our paths have crossed at House of Stitches in LaPorte (I'm a semi-regular there - well, as semi-regular as a person living in Chicago can be).

    Have fun in Shereville tomorrow, and keep up the great blogging!

  2. It's great to be a rebel sometimes!

    Unfortunately you wont run into me unless you come over the pond for a visit LOL

  3. I love to be rebelious once in awhile too. Hope you have fun tomorrow.

  4. I enjoy reading your blog! And I am all for being a rebel every once in a while.

  5. You're a bit of a star yourself too you know!! Like Julie you won't run into me unless you come over the pond a visiting.

  6. I know exactally how you feel! I get like that some days too.

  7. Enjoy your rebel time and the weekend stitching.
