Illustration Friday - Stitch?

I must be completely out of ideas. A stitch in time saves nine? Hmmm... I'm not a seamstress but I think that means if I catch a rip early enough then I can sew it up with one stitch instead of later when it will take nine. So MAYBE if I can figure out why I am out of ideas now, I can sew my head up right away, instead of waiting till my brain is totally defunct and beyond repair.

Any ideas??
