So, I grabbed my car keys and announced that I was going to Walmart for sundae making materials and Cheetos and did anyone a.) want anything or b.) want to come. My husband Michael came out of the computer room, hands in his pockets and said, “This have anything to do with the missing stitching?”
Absolutely. I only ever go for Cheetos and sundaes when I’m in a funk, and then the wonderful dear surprised me.
He said, “There’s a Hobby Lobby in Bartlesville. Why don’t you grab some patterns and we’ll go kit them up instead.”
Dude. He is such a keeper.
So, showing remarkable restraint, I grabbed three designs off my to-do pile and skipped out the door. He not only gave me his wallet, HE CAME WITH ME!!! Ya’ll, my husband is a hermit. Getting this man out the door for a movie or for dinner on our anniversary is like prying a muscle from a konk shell. In fact, I’ve cooked our last six anniversary celebratory meals, because I couldn’t get him out of the house. Before that, I’d go out with a friend and bring him back a doggy bag!
Last night, he not only came with me, but he drove 35 miles out of town to Bartlesville, Oklahoma, making two pitstops along the way (one to get a picture of a life sized Utah Raptor and the other to walk through the Zoo Safari in Dewey–both at my behest because, yes, I am just that nerdy). I thought I was handling my disappointment pretty well, but I guess I must have been being a right pain since he didn’t even sit in the car. He came in for both the zoo and the Hobby Lobby, and I am now kitted up to start:

Skeleton Crew by The Cricket Collection and Vicki Hastings
Trellis by Leisure Arts and Paula Vaughan
I’m going to start the trellis tonight, since it looks like a quick stitch and I’m really in the mood for that.
