stitching, meditation, and House Hunters International
Today presents a fine opportunity to do a lot of hand stitching on the first part of the triptych. As I stitch, I listen to the TV in the background, today featuring a young midwestern couple on HGTV's House Hunters International deciding on which of three Fiji estates to buy for their vacation home. Really?
Their conundrum does not distract me from my own, one that becomes more apparent as I stitch.
The alternative it to take out all the stitching, which really isn't feasible given the needle holes that would remain. I would have to make another print, and start anew, not a happy thought.
I am sure I will be able to rationalize my way to a happy resolution. At any rate, the dilemma is not interfering with the delightful meditative state that comes with intense stitching. By the way, I think the young midwestern couple will choose the Fiji estate I like best. I always like it when that happens.
