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.

Ann Lawle's whitework band--January goal accomplished!

I put the last stitch into Ann Lawle's whitework band last night:

And because I was too lazy to put this away and grab another project from the Overly Ambitious List, I started the Montenegrin band that divides the next section from this one.

I've decided to work a band a month on this sampler, which should see it finished by the end of October. I think that will keep me from burning out. This isn't the biggest sampler in the works, but some of the bands are a little complex, so I figured this would be the best way to tackle it.

I'm not sure what I'll work on today. I was hoping for sunshine so I could pick up Hannah Thornbush, but it's pouring buckets and extremely windy. Our lights have flickered a couple of times, so I may not be able to stitch at all. Even better, I may not be able to vacuum . . .


  1. Unfortunately, I do the vacuuming before the stitching so mine is already done. Not raining yet but coming on soon and I have to finish a Habitat sampler before I can start the fun stitching. Don't know what I will do if the power goes down!! Might have to have the DH hold the big flashlight for me!!! Laura
