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.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all who celebrate it. It's a beautiful time of the year, a time for new beginnings.

I wonder why we don't make resolutions in the spring, instead of gloomy January.  It seems, when everything is blooming and beautiful, that it would be easier to maintain our wishes for change.

On to stitching:

I decided to work the bands on Time Well Spent that are basically repeats of earlier motifs. This gets me to the beginning of the whitework section, which will be the next section we stitch at my EGA chapter.  As I was rolling up the linen, it struck me that the colors I chose look like Easter eggs.

And now I am off to the kitchen to start cooking the Easter feast.  We have just the two of us here today but we have had the Easter Egg Hunt narrative from the parents of The Flash.  At three, he now gets the concept--and WOW, there is CHOCOLATE inside the eggs!!

On that note, I need to get the ham in the oven.


  1. Time Well Spent is looking great!
