Weekend musings

DH got a lot done this weekend on our current DIY project.  I was planning on taking a lot of pictures.  I grabbed my camera, but alas! the batteries were dead.  And wouldn't you know it, I have every size of battery in my extra battery box but the size I need.  So no pictures yet.

I made good progress on the ever-boring "One Nation."  I discovered another bad thing about stitching this pattern - ear worms!  (An ear worm, so I'm told, is a song that gets stuck in your head and plays over and over and over and over...)

As you know, this pattern has the names of all the states on it.  When I was a kid, I took piano lessons for several years.  One of the early songs I learned to play had these words:
"What did Delaware to Georgia's party down in Maryland?
She wore a New Jersey that Virginia bought in Washington.
Did you know that Tennessee did see a saw in Arkansas?
For this silly songs of states, Iowa big apology!"

Now every time I sit down to stitch on this darn project, that song starts running through my head!  Ack!

As you are stitching, turn a radio or something else up to get that song out of your head! Works for me.
