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.

another finish-finish

Despite all odds, I managed to get another project out of the finishing basket:


Williamsburg Folk Art Box & Smalls
Merry Cox

(Should I admit that, when I ran into this while rummaging in the finishing basket, I didn't remember stitching it?  I must have--my initials and 2011 are stitched in--but I don't remember it. I can't decide if that means senility has set in or if it simply means I have way too many projects in the finishing basket for any one person to own up to.)

I feel like I've had the same wild-eyed look and hair that the angel has this week. What I thought was just a nagging headache turned into a raging sinus infection. I now have steroids and antibiotics and am on the mend--but there have been only a few stitches added to the Tulip Tray as a result.


There are now two swans a'swimmin' and a tulip-and-a-half a-bloomin' but that's it.

I should rectify that situation at once.

  1. You are starting to worry me. I have this project too. And my Merry Cox So Dear to My Heart is sitting in my to be finished box. Maybe it is time to get it out??

    1. I'm beginning to think our stashes are cloning each other--maybe that's why I don't remember stitching this!

  2. You should have an exhibit of all the sets of "smalls" that you have stitched. Or put photos of the individual ones on the side panel of your blog. I love seeing them and I'm sure others will too.

    1. I will have to discuss the technical details of adding pix to the sidebar with my tech support (aka Baby Girl). And then dig them out of various hidey-holes. And then take pictures. I may be too lazy for this.

  3. Beautiful work. And I know what you mean about the finishing basket. Mine is a large rectangular laundry basket and it is full to the brim.
