You might think that I am suspicious about things when I say I am a suspicious person, but it turns out I am actually a person who is suspicious looking. I know, I have to gasp when I even think about saying that. My son and a friend of his are in a day basketball camp that is close enough to drive to, but too far to drive home again and then pick them up at the end of the day. I, of course, packed my sewing bags and took vacation so that they could attend the camp. Yesterday morning I dropped them off and then parked my car in some shade so that I could start working on one of my many projects.
You can imagine my surprise when I looked up and there was a policeman's car blocking my car (as if I'm going to try to escape). He came up to my window and asked me just what I thought I was doing. I very politely responded...cross stitching?? :) By the look on his face I'm quite sure that was not the response he was expecting. He then proceeded to ask me the usual questions of why I was there, how long I was going to be there, blah, blah, blah. All I could think of is, I have to be the least sinister looking person in the world. SERIOUSLY. I then decided it might look better if I sat on my blanket in the grass and stitched.
As I was working on my projects today I had to giggle a little wondering what that cop would have thought when he asked me what I was doing had I shown him today's projects.
Life is never dull, and honestly, now I have a pretty good story to tell when I go back to work. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
