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.

Woot, Woot! (or should I say "Whew!)

The minute I hit publish on this entry, I will have blogged every day in July.

Whew . . .

I can't say I will keep up this level of blogging, but I will probably blog more often as a result of this experiment.

For one thing, blogging daily meant that I made sure to make time almost every day to stitch. I occasionally drag home from work mentally exhausted and stressed to the max, but the minute I pick up my needle, all that starts to melt away.  If you're blogging on a needlework blog, you need to have something to write about--so I probably had a more therapeutic month than usual!

And your comments and support on my travails with finish-finishing have been so helpful--you will never know! I'm going to continue to try to have a finishing day every week-end until the finishing basket will close.

(There are times when I ask myself how many needlebooks, scissors fobs, pin cushions, and containers to house them all are needed by any one person. Myself usually answers that there is no limit. And that is why I'll continue to suffer through the assembly process.)

Most of all, it's been lovely to make contact with others who share this obsession and passion. In a world that seems to spend a lot of its time destroying, it's so affirming to find that there is a community devoted to creating.

So thank you for listening to my stitching fool's blithering!


  1. Congratulations. I do well to make a weekly blog and sometimes can't even do that.

  2. It's been an enjoyable month--thanks!

  3. I have loved reading your daily postings. Well done.

  4. Congrats! I love seeing your stitching progress.

  5. Hi Ann,

    I enjoyed reading your daily posts!
    Especially since I just sat down and read them all at once. :-)

    Yes, please keep up with your adventures in finishing. You do a great job and it will be wonderful to have all of the finished projects around.

    Yes, I'm goofing off a bit as the work PC is having major issues which won't be resolved until I start compressing files and reboot over lunch. Sigh...
