Almost Labor Day?

Oh my gosh......where has the summer gotten to? The older I get, the faster the pages turn on the calendar. We had all kinds of plans in May for what would get done around the house and who we would visit. Hmmmmmmm - I'll get back to you on that.

I am, however, making a quick trip to the west side of Cleveland to visit my cousin tomorrow. I have 12 cousins, but this one is my very favorite and the visit is long overdue. DH gave me the timetable this morning - first stop is Just Stitching (and I didn't even have to ask) and then on to see Laura and her gang.

I have a retreat piece to finish and part 2 of the IStitch SAL - and a couple of Halloween ornies I want to stitch, but also have two squares for Fair and Square. And nothing is calling to me. Why is it that we have enough stash to open our own store but when it comes time to stitch for someone else - nothing will suit? Hoping to go through the stash a little more tonight to see if I really don't have something that is "just right" for my partner and maybe then I'll only need threads tomorrow.

Hope everyone's weekend has some time for you and what you like to do best.



  1. I have the same problem sometimes with my F&S. I almost always try to use it as an excuse to go out and buy something new. And even if I do find a pattern in my stash, the 40 lbs of thread and the drawer full of fabric just won't cut it and I have to go acquire more. LOL

  2. lol Oh dear Heavens...... It's a Round 26 mallady -- I'm having the same problem with your squares (see your email).... lol too funny.

    You know that you're going to get into "that *other* cross stitch shop" and find 6 things you need in the first 2 minutes.

    I do think you've come across a great universal unknown-- why we "have nothing to stitch" despite having enough stash to cause a minor tear in the fabric of reality.

    Travel safely!!!!!!!!!

  3. Have a great trip! Can't wait to see your new stuff!
