On a Tear

I get in these phases where I just want to stitch. Just leave me be. I have a hoop. I have tea. I have a cat who occasionally wants the lap. I'm good.

So close to finishing this piece and I'm anxious to see it done. It's coming out better than my mind's eye thought it would. I did dishes last night and stitched in between soaking a sink full. This is one and a half hours of work.

Another cloudy, rainy weekend is predicted ahead. I have given myself tasks which must be performed before the kids arrive over Memorial Day, but the lure of the hoop is very strong. I'm already trying to decide the color of the mat and frame for when this is finished. That's a bit ahead of itself, to be sure, but it spurs me on to more stitching so I can make those choices.

Beverage:  African Rooibos tea
