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.

another goal met

I met another goal for January for the Overly Ambitious List yesterday.

All the little designs around the cartouche are filled in with tent stitch.

It took all afternoon and part of the evening to finish four flowers and eight leaves, thus reinforcing the decision to avoid tent stitch when I stitch the panels for my casket. If I did tent stitch, it would take me until I'm 104 to get the designs I want to do done.

As I already have to live to be 385 to finish what I've already planned, I don't think I should add that many more years to a project.
