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.

Lovely Lady's Worke Box

Today I took the Lady's Worke Box workshop with Ellen Chester and the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild.

This is how it will (hopefully) look when it's complete.

This is what I managed to accomplish in class today.

Actually, considering how little I usually manage to stitch in class, I did quite well.

It was a very enjoyable class and I was able to spend time with friends from days at Jeannine's sampler gathering. They made me feel very welcome.

Ellen, of course, brought the models for her trunk show.

When I saw the array, I realized that there are a lot of these pieces sitting in the finishing basket, waiting to turn into something.

I probably should spend the rest of the year finish-finishing instead of stitching.


  1. Ah, but stitching is so much more fun than finishing. Although there is that moment of complete self-satisfaction upon admiring a newly finished piece of finishing. Pat, pat, pat on the back!

  2. What a lovely treasures! Great progress too.

  3. So pretty! You will have it stitched soon. The finishing makes me nervous, all that cutting so close to the stitching ;-)
    Loved seeing the trunk show - very nice!!
