I’m at my parent’s house right now, packing up two suitcases to take on the plane with me when I return on Sunday. I was very silly when I last did this; I took all my clothes last time. Now all I have to fill my cases are books and hard, heavy stuff. I mean, last time with just clothes, one case weighed more than I do, and the other one was just a tiny bit less.
Luckily, I still have some yarn stash here. So one case is yarn, Sherlock Holmes, Jasper Fforde and some old cross-stich projects, and the other is two sleeping bags and Terry Pratchett. If they search my cases, they’re going to think I only have the outfit I’m standing up it. Clothes for the weekend will be in my carry on bag.
Speaking of the cross stitch, I found the Noah’s Ark thing I started 10 years ago. TEN YEARS. I’m about 65% done, so I think I will finish it, just to have some closure, and never cross stitch again. Maybe I’ll give it to the first of my friends to have a baby, it is a fairly kiddie design. But cute, and good for X-stitch because there’s variety. I remember saying that I’d work until I finished the monkey, or the parrot, or the whale. Each animal is fairly small, so even a 12-year-old could finish one in a night. There’s just a lot of them. And borders. I took some photos, but won’t upload until I’m back at my own computer.
And now to be so I can look pretty for my friend Jilly’s wedding tomorrow.
