Decisions, decisions

Do I vacuum and do the laundry, or do I go out to the west end and get some supplies from the Paper Shop? The trek to the Paper Shop is a long and tiring one, otherwise I could do all of it. The laundry could wait, I suppose. But then so can the supplies.

I'm told that this kind of thinking is typical for those, like myself, born under the sign of Libra. Well, at least we weigh the pros and cons before going into action. I'm also told this can lead to dithering, but I'm happy to report that I am not a ditherer.

Meanwhile, I stitched this saying (I have no idea who said it) on a lovely piece fabric that I purchased from KINGxACE on Etsy. The finish is impeccable, which saves me the trouble.

It's very true, when you think about it.

Do not break your shin on a stool that is not in your way.-- Irish proverb

  4. Colette, clearly from the amount of work that you post, you are no ditherer!
    So great! I too went to the Paper Place today with Max!

  5. What a lovely little sentiment. Yes, so what did you decide to do? Do both... one today and one tomorrow!

  6. I did the right thing -- the chores, the grocery, the post office.... Got them out of the way :)

    Dianne, the saying is about work and material things. For you, I would stitch: If you have love, you have everything!


  7. I would so love to purchase this from you. You cannot know the meaning this has today for me. XO

  8. LOVE this, Colette! Brilliant in so many ways :)

  9. This is so true! Thank YOU..............

    You can come down anytime and play with all of us in Oklahoma City at the Paper Crown. We would love for you to come and teach a class.......think about it and let me know!

  10. love this! Great reminder.
