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.

Leaves and buds and blossoms, oh my!

We have stems for the bluebird to perch on and for the spider web to dangle from on the Bluebird Needlecase.

Now we have the word that strikes fear in my needleworker's soul.


We're to stitch the leaves and flowers randomly.

I don't do random.

That's why I mostly stitch counted pieces, where everything has its place.

Not sure how this will go.  There may be ripping.  There will probably be ripping.  Because I really don't do random.


  1. It will be beautiful. Just relax.
    So glad the nun stitch is behind you :)

  2. True randomness is quite tricky to achieve, but as Chris says, just relax. Take it gently. You'll do fine!
