Winners never quit! Quitters never win!
My junior high p.e. teacher, Mrs. Souhrada, used to enthusiastically cheer us on with these words as we doggedly ran lap after lap after lap around the gym. I like running now. In seventh grade...not so much. Who wants to have flushed cheeks and bad hair from third period on? Tell me this.
Well, Mrs. S' words were ringing in my ears as I stitched this little doodle. Several times I wanted to scrap this project. I wasn't in love with the color palette. The stitches weren't coming easy. I couldn't decide what to put where. Short story long--I lost my doodle mojo. But, in the end, I persevered. I am not a quitter! I'm a winner. I am you guys. You gotta believe me. LOL! I'm not sure where this doodle will end up; it must be destined for something great.
Now that the doodle is done, I'm going to start sewing some lunch boxes for the girls. The second week of school ends today. My girls have taken their lunches to school in brown paper lunch bags every day so far. (Gasp!) This is wrong on so many levels. It's wasteful. It's definitely not green. And, most concerning...it's ugly. There is just no excuse for ugly.
I guess that is all for now. I'm off to beautify the world of cold lunch (insert trumpet fanfare here).
