“Good things take time. Great things take a long time. And the best things take the longest time.”

I must conclude, that if this in fact the case, then 18th century stays are the best…because they take FOREVER! It’s a rather enjoyable forever though, so while it may seem that I am complaining I can assure you I am not.

I was hoping to post part 2 of my previous post with a completed item but alas we ain’t there yet. Progress is being made though…

18th Century Stay on its way to completion

Need to get cracking to avoid this being ANOTHER unfinished project, which I’d be lying if I said wasn’t a possibility…should a completed stay not appear over the following weeks I give you leave to harass and berate me till it’s done, it’s for my own good!

One area where no pushing will be required is putting in the eyelets…perhaps it’s a man thing but hammers (very much like bow ties) are cool!

Bang, bang, bang…yay for hammers!

As a final point for today I would just like to comment on another very pleasant day with Mairi B, I can think of little else more civilised than sewing on a Sunday while listening to the dulcet tones of Dorris Day and Tori Amos! I should also thank her for introducing me to The Musketeers (on the good ol’ BBC), as well as being top notch TV there is a veritable Smörgåsbord of beautiful stays, further fuelling my new found obsession!

Alas dear friends, with an audible sigh, I must return to less creative exploits…Adieu.

  1. Indeed, that’s a lot of truth to that saying. Are there exceptions to its principle, yes, of course, but many of the best and most rewarding things in life do certainly take a substantial amount of time.

    Thank you very much for your terrific comment on my post about the importance of encouraging children to rock their own style. Creativity, all throughout my life, has been immeasurably important to my happiness and state of mind as well.
