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!


  1. Enjoy the sunshine, enjoy the day, enjoy your snooze, and enjoy your stitching!

  2. There was a pop song in the late 1980 which gave the advice: Don't worry, be happy!!!

  3. I too am looking forward to Game Of Thrones! I hope your household had a lovely day :)
