One thing I am 100% sure about is if brought something into this house that I didn’t want Vince to see . . say I ordered a big box of linen (I didn’t), no matter how hard I tried to get in without him noticing, he would notice and say something.
I finished this piece in July. It’s in the frame and all it needs is a hook or wire on the back of the frame and a nail in the wall. Those are all Vince’s job.
I remember showing this to him once he got here. I finished this in February and he arrived in April. Then I showed it to him again after it was framed. I thought he was impressed but I guess not so much.
Yesterday I brought it out and stacked it with a couple of other frames that need hooks. This piece happened to be on top.
Vince walked in and saw it.
Vince: Where did you get this?
Me: I stitched it!
Vince: You stitched all these words?
Me: Yes! Read them.
He read them, said “That’s nice!” and put it down.
I said “You don’t remember seeing that before?” Nope. I explained it all and he said “I suppose when I got here, there was so much to see and do .. I just don’t remember everything.”
