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.

Now what?

For a variety of reasons, I didn't have a lot of stitching time in the evenings after work this week, but I was able to finish the needlework for the smalls for the Tea Time Basket.

After being obsessed with this project for the last couple of weeks, it's over.

So now what do I do?

It's not that I don't have a multitude of projects in progress as well as a stash of frightening proportions. Somehow, though, when I've been totally immersed in one project, it's hard for me to see it end and move on.

Yes, I could do the finish-finishing but that's another situation entirely. Putting together is not a stress-free experience for me, and this week-end I'd like a little stress relief instead!

Maybe I should dust and run the vacuum instead of stitching . . .


  1. Surely you can find a little something to work on--never the dreaded dusting and vacuuming!! This looks gorgeous.

  2. I agree with you Sue. You really need to be in the right frame of mind to do the finishing-finishing.

    I've been feeling the same way - just finished all the pieces from a class I took last fall. Now I'm having trouble deciding what to stitch next!
