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.

Going around in circles . . .

All forty-eight spiral trellis petals are stitched.

Every single one of them.

I still have to stitch the centers and outline each and every petal with a darker blue, but that will wait until I get this back on the scroll bars. And getting it back on the scroll bars will wait until the cramp in the hand that was holding the linen relaxes. And I get the linen pressed. Which means getting the iron and ironing board out. And as long as I have all that out, I should get some finishing finished since I'm at the stage on the finish-finishing of a small project from last year that requires pressing.

And I do have three other projects on the Overly Ambitious List that need to have fabric pressed so I can mount them properly. I had planned to do all that this week-end.

But I spiral trellis'ed instead.


  1. Isn't it great to have them all done? That way they are all the same. You are very disciplined.

  2. Wonderful progress. I have never tried the spiral trellis stitch, and fortunately none of my current projects call for it. Good luck with your to-do list!

  3. How exciting! Great job. Can't wait to see more.
