The green envelope in the foreground middle is my Cake Patterns Hummingbird which arrived today! I'm in Susan's house for the sewalong. I've just now realised the sewalong starts on Monday which I can't visualise doing at all. I guess I could just ignore all the slip plans, but I don't know about ignoring the shawl I wanted to finish knitting first and the wonderful book Life after Life that I'm loving right now and the latest Elizabeth Strout which I have very kindly been lent which I want to read this coming week. It's not quite kosher to abandon the husband/children/kitchen/laundry or not to go to paid work either. Huh! I'm off to bed to read my book.
But this is great, from the army chief in Australia. I'll be using his quote plenty more: "The standard you walk past, is the standard you accept."
