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.

Attacking the Plan

I was going to do the top half of the framework and fill in some of the fun stuff before moving to the bottom half.

I was.

I didn't.

As I was merrily stitching along, I suddenly realized that I had most of the stitch pattern in my head--it's very repetitious--so it seemed wise to take advantage of that fact and keep going.

So I did.

It took hours and hours and hours.  So I am very, very, very happy to be done . . .except the whole framework is solidly stitched.

Sigh . . . this is NOT going to be a fast band to stitch.  At all.


  1. It makes sense to keep going once you have a stitch pattern in your head. Better that then having to relearn it again later. :-)

    I know I owe you an email - life has been busy!

  2. I have been watching your progress on this piece with great interest. Band samplers can be very challenging but are often great fun, giving us all sorts of opportunities to develop our skills and attempt things way beyond our comfort zones. Good luck.

  3. I found you through Riona's blog and have enjoyed reading the past entries. Your work is beautiful.
