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 it's really done . . .

I thought I had finished the last band.  I hadn't.

There's a running stitch that gallops through the channel between motifs. I had forgotten about it.

It's always a very good thing to re-read the directions before moving on.

This is the only needlework that has been accomplished by me this week-end. I visited with Baby Girl.  We had sushi and the Olympics Friday night, and then a long, leisurely breakfast for lunch (at the point at which we got ourselves out and about, it was too late even for brunch), a movie, and more Olympics Saturday. I drove home this morning and have spent the afternoon trying to do all the stuff I usually do on week-ends in a very few hours. Dearly Beloved is stir frying something for dinner--and then I may go to bed.  Monday morning is going to come way too soon.


  1. I am also dreading Monday morning. After working on stitching smalls all week, I decided to start a sampler tonight...while watching the Olympics!

  2. Good to reread directions - had to laugh since there have been evenings with Jane Turner that rereading the directions is all that gets accomplished! Hopefully the ornie I'm working on will finish up in a day or two and I can get back to Jane.

    Your band looked great without the running stitch, but I'm glad for you that you discovered it now rather than later.
