~ The Irritating Stitcher ~

Hi there! I do declare, the *most* irritating thing about some stitchers is they just can't control themselves, it's so degrading and well, I'm really really sorry to say this, they're just pitiful. You know the ones, floss lickers, you stitch side by side with them, always crying and whining, scrimping and squirreling away grocery money for a new chart, sneaking back from the mailbox like Inspector Clouseau and then boasting about stimulating their stash behind their husband's back, snivelling about nasty 'lil frogs invading their house, fabricating any excuse to take the long way home so they can stop/shop at their LNS, panting and foaming uncontrollably every February when they hear the words *Nashville Market*, feverishly making list after list, cunningly swapping this one for that one, ultimately wanting more, and more, and more. They are much worse than xxx addicts, they are stitchaholics, and yet addicts in every sense of the word, beyond any glimmer of hope whatsoever, whew~ and... I am one of them~LOL!!!

Pic is pre-blog January '09 (b-day stash), but I figured it would be fun to share anyway.
