The players are lined up, equipment checked, the race is on. Stitch Hound is ready to start. The goal is chosen, material in hand, supplies are ready.... AND THEY'RE OFF! First phase of the race is completed and around we go. But wait, #3045 and #738 are looking very pale and in need of reinforcements. CLEAN UP ON TRACK #1! Back into the stitch bay for a new lineup. Stitch Hound is returning and entering the area with # 610 and #613, feeling confident. AND THEY’RE OFF! A few times around the track and something isn’t right, the Hound can feel it. Oh no. Disqualified!! CLEAN UP ON TRACK #2! Back to the stitch bay to regroup. The coach doesn’t want to give up on #610 and #613 so calls in #3857 to replace #221, hoping this new # will finally satisfy the bitch owner. AND THEY’RE OFF! A few more times around the track, making progress, closing in .... and the Hound comes to a screeching halt. CLEAN UP ON TRACK #3!! All threads are disqualified and the race postponed.
TIME-OUT for regroup. The track is worn out from the changes so it's replaced with a new one of the same size and distance. The old one will be brushed to remove the debris and given a rest.
Stitch Hound is now ready and anxious. A new track. New players. In the lineup is #640 on the outside, #632 on the inside, and #644 is all over the place. #844 is a no-show so #3021 is called in as a replacement. AND THEY’RE OFF! 3021 completes in record time, 640 is on the outside of the group, 632 is coming up in the center and 644 is filling in nicely. Here they come – no drop outs – no substitutions – Stitch Hound is holding on to those bags – SCORE!!!!! We have a winner.
Give that Hound a big treat.
It's been a tough race.
Enjoy your weekend!
