Irony


Some days like this, when I'm super busy at work and I have been painting the hallway instead of stitching, I usually take a post I have in the can--from days when I am unbusy--and slap it up here. Today, nothing.

So here's a new feature. The Stitching Dictionary.

The word of the day is irony:

From an obituary:

She was making a counted cross-stitch project for one of her doctors with the saying: "Life is short and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel the way with us, so be swift to love, and make haste to be kind."

She had finished everything but the border.

And the lesson:
How to live forever: don't stitch about life being short.

I am afraid I laughed. Imagine if the verse had been shorter she would have finished it, damn, damn!!!
