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 golden books

Not the kind you read when you were a wee tiny child. The needlework kind.

I finally took a deep breath, hitched up the Granny panties, and started the "real" finishing on Eve. All I can say is that I hope this linen is as forgiving as other pieces have been when I tried to put things together. Tonight I have glued the backing boards in place and the glue is drying.

The cover for the Early Spring Lambs needlebook is also coming along.

I love the way the petit point band looks--almost like a tapestry.

I'm not going to think about the finishing part of this project. Then again, after Eve, this will feel like a piece of cake!

I hope.


  1. I hope you will be bringing the "golden book" in June!

  2. It's always scary to do the finishing on a piece you've worked so hard on! Am sure Eve will turn out beautifully.
