"Definitely the stitching was just to fill the hours at sea when there was no wind to drive the boat I doubt he'll be stitching the next time he goes. It was a brief, torrid affair with the needle, which hobby I can finally reclaim, now that I…"

"Oh I love that, finding the thrill even after 20 years! Sounds like you're compatible in a unique way of long absences. Boy, your hearts must be really fond by now! The stitching might be trickier on a walk...."

"Yes, I did try to do something most days, but had a batch to mail out when things got hectic or I was traveling. SO having some longer sessions of making a series makes sense, and I just set it as my personal goal to actually post one a day, except…"

Definitely the stitching was just to fill the hours at sea when there was no wind to drive the boat I doubt he'll be stitching the next time he goes. It was a brief, torrid affair with the needle, which hobby I can finally reclaim, now that I don't have to share my DMC cotton floss and precious embroidery hoops with a bearded old salt of the sea. :)

Hi Jan, Bathtub made it around the world, I got him back in March of 2018...though not for long, he was a good boy for a year, but now he is talking about flying (at least not sailing) to S.America for an 8 month walk, Chile to Ecuador. The only reason we have stayed together for 20 years, I think, is that we are so often not together at all. :) Reunions take on the thrill and excitement of new relationships because I forget, between one moment and the next, what he looks like, so it feels like a different guy each time. Or you could say I feel like I'm cheating on my husband with my husband...
