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.

Gettin' my Fa-la-la on!

Two evenings--that's all this took--just two evenings!

After I got the center motif finished--and remembered how much I despise working with Frosty Rays--this was a delight to stitch.

I was thinking about going ahead and finish-finishing, but then I came to my senses. I have seven more ornaments in this series, and it makes a whole lot more sense to wait until I get a few more stitched. Then I could do an assembly line finish of a bunch of them at one time.

(And this is absolutely not a way to avoid finish-finishing. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)


  1. I think that is the way to do it. Then you can just do a finish finishing frenzy and be done with them. Stitch on!

  2. I have been avoiding my finishing too. It's piling up!

  3. Lovely - looking forward to seeing the others stitched. If I was you, I'd wait until they were all stitched...that way you'll have enough backing fabric and have an accurate yardage to do them all. Plus you will have enough of the same dye lot or cording yardage to do them all at the same time...I agree with you on waiting. LOL

    Looking foward to meeting you face to face at Williamsburg.
