In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Darning is done!

Happy Dance--the darning pattern for the scissors case is done!

I love the way that darning patterns look, but it doesn't take more than one repetition and my Stitcher's ADD kicks in. I came very, very close to going on to another section, but there is one thing I've learned about my stitching habits.  If I leave something for any length of time--and that can be only 30 seconds--the project tends to end up in a bin, lost and forlorn, waiting for me to return.

And that's why I try to do all the outlining and borders and repetitive parts at the very beginning.  If I don't, it may never get done.

By the way, here's the other bits I've managed to do this week.

Yes, I am working sideways on the scroll bars. Stretcher bars were going to be too long to handle easily.

And it amuses Dearly Beloved.


  1. Great progress! The darning patterns look cool.

  2. It's interesting working on scroll bars sideways, isn't it? I tried my darndest to figure out a way around it, but, no go.

  3. by the way, progress looks good!
