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.

Olympic stitching

Not so much.

At this level of competition, things happen in seconds.  Even entire competitions only last seconds.

So I've spent a lot of time holding a needle in my hand but not quite getting it in and out of the linen.  You'd think with this many hours of potential stitching time there would be finished projects flying out of the stitching corner.

You'd be wrong.  I am mesmerized by the Olympics.

This is all that's happened lately:

This little panel is part of an online class from Shining Needle and Jackie du Plessis. It will be solidly stitched.


Probably after the Olympics . . .


  1. Yeah.... I'm not getting much stitching done, either! That looks like a crazy lot of stitching to me, though!

  2. I'm the same way! But thank goodness for instant replay, or I'd get NO stitching done. :)
