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.

Dancing in the Streets!

I have finished the prestitching for the casket class with Betsy Morgan!

You will notice that there are some blank spots. Those are the areas I plan to personalize.  At the moment, I'm torn--family history?  a favorite quote about needlework? a set of fruit or flower motifs (since I'm not so much into the critters)?

The quibblers will say that I am not finished--but the stuff that has to be stitched the way it's designed is stitched. The rest is up to me.

And this is the last obligation stitching I'm planning for a very long time.

(Dearly Beloved and Baby Girl have both said, "Yeah, right." Either they have no faith in my will power or they know me too well.)


  1. Well, I am very impressed that all your stitching is done. I can't wait to see how you personalize it and make it your own. Well done, you!

  2. Well done. This looks like a huge and time consuming project and already you have the "compulsory" stitching done! Congratulations.

  3. Congratulations on getting all this finished so that you are ready for the class. It is going to be wonderful.

  4. I am amazed by the sheer volume of the pre-stitching and have to wonder just what exactly [above and beyond assembly of the casket] is left to do in class.

  5. I was dancing on my blog yesterday as well albeit for a different reason. Maybe we'll get something started here ... lol! You have really worked hard on this project! It's going to be quite an impressive piece when it is all done : )

  6. Congratulations! That's the kick I need to get back to the endless pattern darning. . . and then I can join you! Looks great.

    PS. Please bring to Guild next week. :-)
