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.

The silks I ordered for my Cabinet of Curiosities arrived.
Drool . . .
There is just something about the luminescence of silk. The way it glows, the way it feels, the way it glides through fabric.
This is going to sound a wee bit odd, but having the threads in front of me is making the caskets I want to embroider really real. Before, they were just a couple of ideas but now I can start to think about the textures and colors that will fill in the outlines.
I do have a problem. It's so pretty I almost hate to take it out of its packaging and actually stitch with it!
