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.

Framework framed

Well, it was already on the stand and all the stuff for it was at hand, so . . .

the framework for Journey is all set up.

After I've been working on linen for awhile, it takes me a bit to get used to canvas, especially how much more quickly the canvas works as opposed to linen.  Well, of course it does--I'm working on something with 18 threads and big holes to the inch as opposed to 45 threads and all but nonexistent holes to the inch. And I don't have to balance the magnifier on my head and continually push it back into position when I work on canvas because I can see without it.

Perhaps I should have included more canvas on the Overly Ambitious List.


  1. But of course, says she, the owner of a handpainted shop. But whatever you stitch, I enjoy watching your progress, Ann.

  2. I have always felt the Overly Ambitious List was just a starting point and subject to change at any time. Feel free!!
