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.

Pitiful, just purely pitiful

March has not been a good month for needlework around here.

At this point, I had hoped to have the first band on Ellenor Wykcs and the third band on Anne Lawle stitched.

This is what I have:

 Pretty much what I had on Ellenor the last time she appeared on this blog.

All that I've done on Anne--and some of it has to come out.

I don't know if it's this ping pong winter--every time you think it's gone, it comes zooming back--or if I'm just working too many hours or if I've been distracted by other things, but somehow a needle hasn't been making it into my hand.  

I decided tonight that I was not going to worry about it. I have a feeling that when I pick that needle back up, it's going to be electrified.

Meanwhile, I did go over the finishing of the etui done my way at EGA last night. I think it was fairly successful. I think I confused only about half the people there.

And now I believe I'm going to take my book and go to bed. Today really should have been Friday.


  1. Every Thursday should be Friday!!!

  2. Sometimes we don't have energy to stitch and that's ok. :) And if half the people understood your finishing instruction, that's amazing, as some of us are finishing phobic. Lol.
