Yesterday as I was driving to Jo-Ann's to get stuff to make this and this and a pinking rotary cutter (I hope to show you the results of that project soon), there was a huge line of traffic. About three miles before the Jo-Ann's exit, there is this fake third lane. It only lasts for about a mile, and you have to merge back down to two lanes well before the exit. So of course because the other two lanes were backed up, people were speeding down the fake lane, then screwing me over because they had to get back into my lane. I noticed that people were also driving in the break down lane (aka hard shoulder) to take the exit. It was cheesing me off real bad. I inched along legally getting angrier and angrier that there's never a cop around when you need one.
But there was. He had pulled over five cars that were using the break down lane. He had blocked it with his car and was catching them like flies in his web. I rolled down my window and said "ha, ha!" as I crawled past each car. Terribly petty, I'm the first to admit, but you do not know how good it made me feel for driving responsibly. For a change.
You may not have noticed, but blogger is letting its users make separate pages. I have made two and may make another. One is my wish list. The other is far more important and useful. Since we agree that it isn't Just Cross Stitch's photography that makes us want to stitch their ornaments--it's the photos on our friends' blogs--I've made a collection of links to photos of completed projects from the 2010 issue. So far only two links. As you stitch up the ornies--or find photos from someone else who has done so--please let me know and I'll add a link.
Perhaps eventually we will have links to all of the 2010 ornaments, and we'll change our minds about whether we should keep buying the magazine.
