Friday Randomness & Happy IHSW

'Twas the Friday of IHSW when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The sun was in hiding, the clouds were at play,
The perfect weather to do nothing all day!

The clock chimed one, Joyce got out of bed,
To pay some attention to fabric and thread;
She'd taken vacation to stitch all day through,
On a last-minute Christmas gift she had to do.

The Olde Irish Blessing was calling her name,
She'd better stop blogging and get on the game;
So she bids you adieu and shouts out a call:
"Happy Hermitting and Stitching Weekend to All!!"

It's still not too late to join us for IHSW!! :D

What a cute poem. You can bet I am stitching this weekend! I so need time for me, me, me!

Sorry I missed you post regarding how one stores their flosses when stitching. I hope you can forgive me.

I will be glad when the Holidays have come and gone! I like them but it can be stressful.

Happy Holidays to you!

Cute stocking! So lucky to have the day off and stitch! I'm jealous! I had to pick a new project due to stand/scroll rod malfunction!

Love your poem, ROFL!!
