Patience is a real blessing. To be frank -- it's not something that I have in abundance. I am rarely a patient person, though I strive to be more patient. I could be much more patient with my kids, other drivers, the world at large.... But that is not why this square is about patience. It's about patience because it was not supposed to be the next square. This was:
It's supposed to be a square about books. I stitched it and ripped it out twice last night; it's giving me fits! Books are a really big deal to me, and I want to get this square right. Finally, I gave up and moved on. I took out some of my favorite tatting and stitched it onto another square -- and poof, a pretty square. Not a technically difficult one, but one that sorta restored my sanity (and kept me from flinging my super-cute Cath Kidston sewing basket across the room in frustration).
So, here's to patience! And may I have the patience to return to the "books" square soon. :)
