We went to Needlecraft Corner today because I needed Sarsparilla to work on my little Christmas blackbird. I usually order online, because even though I'm in between Washington and Baltimore, there isn't a quick way to get to Harford Road, at least that my withered brain seems to comprehend. I know if I took the Harbor Tunnel I could do it, but, as stupid as it sounds, I can't make it happen. I end up going to Annapolis. Don't ask why, I don't know. I know Brea is laughing at me now, because she's driven out of the way with me.
I also have been wanting the charts that were the Praiseworthy Stitches/Crescent Colors collaboration. And the cute little seasonal things by Crescent Colors, I had Summer from last summer, but just realized she did Winter and Autumn. So I got Autumn, I think I can work on that on the flight to Dallas on Friday. Drema asked me what I needed and when I explained, I needed something to work on on the plane to go get my dog, I think she thought I was nuts.
That's OK, though. Anyone can say I'm nuts, but this is an adventure, and I may never have the chance to do this again. I try now to not reject opportunities. When I was 15, I had the chance to go to the top of the World Trade Center. I didn't do it because it cost money and I wanted to conserve my money. I thought, well, I'm young, I'll get back to New York, it will always be there. And we all know what happened. I never got back and I won't ever get to do that. Life is too short to put off opportunities.
Anyway, enough of the philosophical input, back to charts. I bought those charts. I also bought LHN Captain's Inn. It's pretty. It was a nautical thing, which will go with my living room. And I bought one of the new Blue Ribbon Designs, the one with the pumpkin. Now I have to stop buying. I have plenty to work on.
I am off to the fair tomorrow morning. I can not wait until Tuesday to go. I will be nervous til I get there and see what happened.
