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.

Still Slightly Discombobulated

Daylight Savings Time has me in my usual spring discombobulation.  It feels like an unusually severe case  of jet lag, and it takes me a couple of weeks to recover. I've been cranky.

And I have hardly had a needle in my hand. I wanted to stitch, but it just didn't happen. This is quite possibly another reason for the crankiness.

However, when Gay Ann announced she was starting a Midnight Star stitch-along, I dug the one that I had piloted out of the finished pile, so I do have something to show. I wanted to play with the colors a little, so I went with the silver metallic canvas instead of dark canvas and light threads. This was REALLY out of my comfort zone and I have not a clue what I'll ever do with it, but it was fun to stitch.

I do believe that I may take the center motif and stitch it in Christmas colors. I think it would make a fantastic ornament.

I think it would look totally different hung on point--if you tilt your head just slightly you can see what I mean.

And that means I have to figure out what very safe place I stashed the directions so I can try that out.


  1. I think you are right. The design would be perfect in Christmas colors and hung on point. Happy Stitching!

  2. Wow! That is amazing. So pretty!
