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.

Sneezing and stitching

Well, obviously I will not be posting every day in November.  I am not going to whine about my cold, other than the fact that I have all but lost my voice. This is entertaining Dearly Beloved to no end.

Despite having to stitch with one hand while I blow my nose with a tissue in the other, I have managed to stitch another section of In the Mood.

The end is nigh . . .not mine (I hope) but I'm soon to see the end of this project. The temptation is great to make a giant pot of vegetable soup for the week-end and toil on this until it is complete. There are two more motifs and a bunch of borders, then the beading.

And then I get to decide what project to bring downstairs next. I am leaning towards Christmas ornaments. As I have already had my Thanksgiving, I'm getting in the Fa-la-la mood early.


  1. What is the name of this piece and where can I see the whole thing??? It's gorgeous!!

  2. This is a project called In the Mood Blue by Marnie Ritter. It was an online class offered through the Shining Needle Society. If you're not a member--and membership is free--I strongly suggest looking into it. The group is housed on YahooGroups or you can google it for more information. There should be a picture of the entire project on the yahoo group site.
