Yesterday I felt torn . . in turmoil all day! Then last night I was going through pictures on a memory stick and came across this tree and I thought . . that’s how I feel!
I think I took this picture in a conservation area north of here but from the time I got up yesterday morning, til I went to bed, I struggled and I felt like that tree must feel. All the other trees around have branches and twigs and leaves and this poor tree . . standing all alone being the oddball!
Do you know why I felt like the oddball? Everyone was out to get me! The quilt shops kept sending me emails saying “We’re having a sale!” or “We have in this gorgeous new line of fabric!” The yarn shops send me emails saying “We’ve just gotten in 25 new colors in this special yarn!” or “We’re going to have colors that we’ve been out of for the past six months!” At least 5 times, I had items in my cart and then I closed out the page without ordering anything. I’m betting most every other quilter ordered fabric and most every other knitter ordered yarn but not me . . no . . nothing!
And then to top it all off, a fellow knitter sent me a photo of a scarf she had woven using the same Mardi Gras yarn as the socks I showed you and it was gorgeous and now I want a loom. She even sent me all kinds of info on how to get one and then I started clicking on looms.
Today will be different! Maybe I won’t even open emails from yarn or quilt shops. Maybe I will unsubscribe from all of them! Maybe Not!
