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.

Stitching ADD

I have the fidgets. I can't seem to get settled down to any one project this week-end.

So far, I've put in a few stitches on Martha Edlin:

A very few stitches . . .

I did finish the border on the pilot I'm doing for Sue Reed, her Jewel of the Tsars.

It was quite pleasant to carefully lay the silk threads--haven't done that in awhile and the rhythm can be very soothing.

But it was almost too soothing, so I started on the stitching part of the two classes I'm taking from Jackie du Plessis through Shining Needle Society.

This is the motif that will be on the front of "My Plum," a pretty little drawstring bag to keep a "treasure" in.

And this is the beginning of "Remember Me."

The piece on the bottom will be solidly stitched.  Actually, according to the directions, the framework I started is done last. I tried doing the filling first and discovered that I can't count without making major mistakes, so I'm doing the outside lines first and will fill in last. This is going to be a good no-brainer piece on evenings after work when I need to stitch but don't have any higher mental functions functioning.

Assuming I can focus on anything long enough to actually get some progress made!
