Got sidetracked by the idea that I
needed a tablecloth (heaven knows what
for - never needed one till now),
so I made this:

Soon after birth, though, it said
it doesn´t want to be a tablecloth, it
wants to become a wallhanging...
What a maze.

"I am what time, circumstance, history
have made of me, certainly, but I am also
much more than that. So are we all."

(James Baldwin, died Dec. 1, 1987)

I am just about to embark on a study of running stitch, so I was inspired by this. Also-I am deeply and joyfully amazed by your ability to find a quotation, a poem, a bon mot for every situation.Such a talent.

Thank you, Judith. Yes, I do some poem hunting - but often they find me instead, and suddenly it fits - that´s really quite a joyful thing...
