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.

Now I know my ABC's

at least the 17th century ones!

This is the last alphabet on Martha Edlin. I have to tell you, it's going to be awhile before I stitch anything with an alphabet on it! Three of them in a row are quite enough, thank you very much.

The last couple of weeks have been hectic. I went to help Baby Girl pack for her move.  I worked. I was felled by a migraine for a couple of days, which REALLY interfered with my life! And I agreed to stitch a commissioned piece, about which I can say absolutely nothing, which means, of course, that I can't blog about it.

For my own sanity, and because I have a lot of my own projects I want to work on, I'm stitching the commission piece on weeknights and my stuff on the week-ends. I was all primed to do some finishing work today, but then Dearly Beloved and I went on one simple errand after the weekly trip to the Farmers' Market--and we ended up gallivanting for most the day. This included lunch at our favorite sushi place. I also have some new clothes that I was past needing as well as a new pair of Birkenstocks, also sorely needed. Now I'm doing the laundry and web-surfing to see what everyone else has been doing lately.

I will thread a needle before the day is over. After all, Martha Edlin has only the spot section of her sampler to be stitched. And when it's complete, there will be a happy dance the likes of which have never been seen.


  1. I am hoping Martha is complete by now. ;)

  2. I took a look at this sampler, and it is beautiful! That will be a well deserved happy dance! :) Glad to have found your blog.
