Look! TWO posts in ONE day! Maybe I’m final­ly crawl­ing out of my pit of depres­sion.

My very help­ful child dis­ap­proved of how I was treat­ing my small stitch­ing project, so she sweet­ly put it in a huge Ziplock bag and “put it away.”

I have absolute­ly no idea where “away” might be, but it isn’t in my stitch­ing bag, or near my reclin­er, or in the area where I’ve been sit­ting in the liv­ing room. Now she says she didn’t put it any­where. Buh?

And we stopped at Michael’s yes­ter­day to get the DMC I need­ed for it!1

I also got the fab­ric for two big­ger pieces, though, so I can start one of those. Tech­ni­cal­ly, I know that I have the fab­ric for Deep Peace around here some­where, but I couldn’t find it, so I got a new piece. Now the orig­i­nal fab­ric will, of course, make itself known.

Small­er, less involved projects are bet­ter to do while in com­pa­ny, though. And it’s date night. The girl is, her­self, out on a date, so I can’t even shang­hai her into help­ing find the small project. Grump. She found sup­plies for a cou­ple of dif­fer­ent art projects while we were at Michael’s, too, so I expect heavy art­ing from her short­ly.

We picked up din­ner for the three of us at Lit­tle Azio’s on the way home, which was as deli­cious as usu­al. That was a love­ly way to end a tir­ing, but reward­ing, day.


1 I pre­fer shop­ping at an LNS, but my favorite went online-only and this was an instant grat­i­fi­ca­tion thing.

Love­ly to hear from you, as always 🙂

When I loose a project like that, its usu­al­ly some­where that should have been obvi­ous, but for some rea­son I either didn’t check, or couldn’t see despite it being in plain site. But that’s me.

It was under the piano! Courtey of Kyoshi, most like­ly – with help from Katie, who must have tak­en it into the liv­ing room. At least the cat didn’t take the chain with my scis­sors and needle­case this time. The oth­er day he ran off with it, and we even­tu­al­ly found it hang­ing from a huge CRT mon­i­tor car­cass that the girl is can­ni­bal­iz­ing for “art sup­plies.”

Cats often make things more inter­est­ing like that 🙂
