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.

Back in the Saddle again

Or, I've started stitching again . . .just a little . . . for short periods of time, but I have accomplished the following:

the next part of the framework for Buttons a Bounty

the design for one side of a small etui 

the design for one side of a pin keep to go into the etui

The picture of the side of the etui and the pin keep are from a workshop taught by Cissy Smith of Gentle Pursuits Designs for our EGA chapter.  

I seem to be in a fall-ish mood in my needlework at the moment and I think it's wishful thinking. We seem to have jumped from late summer to winter overnight.  Three days ago I was driving along the highway, thinking that you couldn't tell it was late October since so few of the trees had even started to change color--everything was still green. This morning I woke up to 32 degrees. That's freezing, folks--which meant I had to pull the wool coat out of the closet before I was quite ready. I was looking forward to  enjoying crisp mornings and sunny afternoons and fall colors, not wondering where my gloves went since last winter!


  1. I really like the acorns. We have been below freezing for a bit now too.

  2. Love your stitching, especially the acorns! I got my wool coat out yesterday too! I'm ready for summer! :-)

  3. Lovely stitching. It is a little chilly :)
