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.

Jump Starting July

I was talking to a friend of mine about blogs we love, and I was bemoaning the fact that some of my very favorite bloggers have not written in weeks if not months, while others have slowed down their output. It is summer and there are all kinds of distractions in the summer months, but needlework is eternal and forever and ongoing, I said.

And she said, "Well, you're not blogging that much yourself this summer."


So, I'm going to try to blog more frequently, since needlework IS eternal and forever and ongoing. In fact, I am going to try to blog every day in July.

(I am aware that November nearly killed me last year. I am ignoring that.)

So . . . starting an evening early . . . here is the little I was able to accomplish over the week-end on Ann Scutt:

I'm slowly getting there on the basic framework for this band. The bands are getting much, much larger now.

And for those who have asked, this is the best picture I was able to get of The Flash. We had been watching Bob the Builder and the Golden Hammer, and he wanted to get his treasure chest in the picture. No matter what I did, he managed to push the treasure chest front and center just as I pushed the button. He could definitely give celebrities tips on handling the paparazzi.


  1. Yes, I know I have slowed down. I will have to try to do better too!

  2. I don't have enough time to stitch and blog every day but I admit to feeling lonely when my "most frequently visited" blogs don't update very often! Will have to do better myself.

  3. the pendants are wonderful. Especially the giraffe.
    happy stitching. I am trying to stitch amid house remodeling.
