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.

A Little Bit (a very little bit) of Whitework

I'm stitching again.

Here is part of the whitework for Time Well Spent. (I have no idea what is casting the shadow. It is a shadow, the linen is not brown.)

I really like those little buttonhole bar flowers, even if they take more time than I would like for them to take to stitch.  I also like the snowflake band, even it it's taking more time than I would like for it to take.

Do you find there's a theme here?

I am SO CLOSE to finishing this sampler.

Do you find that you get really excited about a project when you come close to the end, and you want to stitch on it constantly until it's done, over,  finis?

Or do you find that you stitch more and more slowly, prolonging the experience?

I can go both ways, but on this one, I want to finish it.

So I'm going to stitch awhile longer.
