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.

Invisible stitching

Well, it feels like it's invisible.

Maybe this is a little more visible.

At the moment, I am working on the outlines for the pieces that will eventually make Betsy Morgan's design for a casket and smalls. Miles and miles of outlines. Hundreds and hundreds of threads that must be counted accurately.  All the bits and pieces have to be oriented and stitched correctly so that they will fit together when the project reaches the finishing stage.

So, at the moment, there is nothing colorful or particularly interesting to show.   Hopefully all the bits and pieces will fit on the linen as they should and I can get to the fun parts soon!


  1. Wow! Hope you have a bright light! I'd go blind!

  2. Wow. I will be watching your progress with this beautiful project.It is a real commitment but the end result is stunning. Happy stitching.
    Bye for now, Carol

  3. You've got a headstart on me. Our guild is doing this project at our June meeting with a goal of having the stitching finished by January. I'm really looking forward to this one.
