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.

Half Hearted

Between the Olympics and the weather, I've managed to get almost this entire side of Sweet Heart of Mine worked:

I really love how rich the bargello heart looks. Actually, I can't think of anything on this section that I'm not fond of. The blank stares of the birds and bunnies will eventually be covered with beads, but I'll do that last. Otherwise I will spend a lot of time fussin' and cussin' every time the thread catches on them.

Meanwhile, the weather report:  The powers-that-be actually closed our office at noon today. The snow has been beautiful to watch as it falls, but the temperatures are also falling--into the 20's--and all that moisture on the ground is going to freeze.

Anyway, I am telecommuting for the next day or so. We're supposed to have phase 2 of the storm arriving tomorrow morning, and where I live is on the line between mostly snow and lots of ice. I'd rather be on the mostly snow side because lots of ice bring down power lines. And it's a little difficult to telecommute or stitch with no heat or light.


  1. It's looking great.
    Love the Bargello.

  2. Beautiful work . love the colours.

  3. I hope that your power stays on :)

  4. I love this piece! Can't wait to see the finished project.

    I'm behind reading blogs. I hope the weather didn't get too bad for you!
