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.

playing with paper

The shop for the Cabinet of Curiosities class opened a few days ago and I have ordered threads and fabrics. And now that I have been able to see the color families and the types of threads already available, I'm able to plan my caskets--yes, I said caskets--I want to do both types--a little better.

So I've been playing with templates and motifs and ideas most of the day, interspersed with errands (now that the Black Friday crowds have calmed down somewhat) and laundry and housekeeping. The problem is that I keep coming up with way more ideas than I have places to put them all.

 I have decided that there are also going to be some embroidered pictures in my future with 17th century figures stitched in 17th century style. It's either that or I'm going to have caskets all over the house on every available surface.

Dearly Beloved says it sounds like that's already the plan. I should stop allowing him to read over my shoulder when I'm writing.
