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.

Laboring on Labor Day

These pitifully few stitches are all I've managed to stitch today.

Instead I've been dusting and vacuuming and going through old files and shredding and making a valiant attempt to organize part of the stash. The last thing means that I now have an auxiliary finishing basket since the original finishing basket is bursting at the seams.

When you move to a second finishing basket, you definitely need to start putting things together.

But I believe that I will try to put a few more stitches into this sampler instead.


  1. Ah, we always manage to accomplish what WE want to do, not what we should. Thanks for the reminded, sister in stitching!

  2. At least you're done with the gloomy verse and stitching the dividing band!

    Second finishing basket ... you'll get there. Certainly one of these days you'll spend the day with your sewing machine and the it will be a basket of "finisheds"!
