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.

Happy Thanksgiving

Best wishes to all for a Happy Thanksgiving!

We have feasted. We have collapsed on the couch. We have leftovers for the next few meals. We have perused the advertising and decided that there is nothing on earth worth staying up half the night or getting up at the crack of dawn to purchase.  Baby Girl and I, therefore, have spent some time stitching.

And, despite the carb coma, I now--and finally--have a flower on this band of Martha Edlin.

I have to admit that this almost caused a brain cramp. This flower is outlined and filled in with long arm cross that changes direction. The filling was not a problem but outlining all the spiky bits on the carnation and deciding when to change from working horizontal rows to vertical rows while attempting to keep it reversible . . .probably not the best thing to stitch when full of tryptophan from the turkey.

Speaking of which, there is a turkey sandwich calling my name . . .


  1. It all sounds very complicated but worth it as the flower looks gorgeous.
