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.

Little Bits and Pieces

I'm working on the prework for Hands to Work, Hearts to God, but what I'm doing now isn't really much to see.

I have to do another of these little blocks. These two bits will be the lining of a sunbonnet that goes with the set. I'm making the assumption that the sunbonnet will actually be a needlebook--but Jackie could surprise me. She has in the past.

Once I get the other block finished, I have another little piece that is solidly stitched for another small in the set, and then I will go back to Sarah Williams.

Meanwhile, I'm heading to a stitching retreat next week and making a valiant attempt to narrow down the number of projects I want to take. At the moment, I have enough things to keep me stitching fairly steadily for six months. For some reason, I seem to think that vacation hours are much longer than real hours, when it's actually the other way around.


  1. We all really do overestimate the amount we can stitch in a given time. I always take 3 or 4 projects with me when I go to market. Excuse me--I'm walking miles and having sensory overload and I think I'll have the energy left to stitch in the evenings. I'm such a patsy!

  2. I always take too many projects. But, I want choices in case something doesn't spark my stitching flame. Enjoy your weekend and enjoy upcoming retreat.
