I was watching the Hallmark movie "Christmas in Rome", and the lead female character said "Someday is a dangerous word". Now this is also a famous quote from the movie "Knight and Day", but it continues "Someday is a dangerous word. Someday is code for never". This quote struck me as so very true. It is true in our lifetime plans and it is true in our day-to-day lives.
I have always planned that someday I would visit Europe. Hubby and I had that planned for this summer to celebrate our anniversary. He and our children have both made trips to Europe. Hubby always went for work, so I didn't join him. We could have gone as a family over the years, but for some reason we just never did. Someday we would. Well this blasted virus scuttled our European plans for this summer and probably for several years in the future. Sigh.... Someday is far away.
In my day-to-day life, I collect craft and cooking magazines. I have clipped knit and crochet patterns, cross-stitch charts as well as recipes over many years. They all are mostly sitting on shelves and in binders for someday. Well I have decided that someday is here. I am going through my recipes and have started making some of them. First was a recipe I had clipped from a Better Homes and Gardens magazine: Bourbon-sauced pork chops. It was tasty and I will make this again. I also made No-knead Honey Bread also from a Better Homes and Gardens magazine issue.
Mom and I have been going through her clipped recipes too. I think we will start making some of her baking recipes together at her house. I am sure that she will enjoy doing that with me.
I have also been talking about making my daughter's former bedroom into a guest/craft room for several years now. The guest room part is done, but I haven't taken my crafts out of the basement yet. I am stuck as I use her large desk when teaching my university class online. In order to comfortably fit my sewing machine table, I would need put the desk and hutch in the basement. This is another someday project that I really have to figure out.
Patriotic Bunny was a someday project that I started before I heard that quote. I have had this pattern for many, many years. The magazine where I found it doesn't even exist any more. I have almost finished stitching it.
Isn't he adorable. I have to finish stitching "Happy" and then I just have to add the sequins and complete the finishing to frame it with fabric.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I will try to add those sequins today.
Thanks for stopping by!
