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.

Threads, Threads Everywhere

and nothing to be seen.

I think it's either spring fever or Daylight Savings Time (about which I have ranted previously), but I can't seem to get myself going on anything at the moment.

I started Ellenor Wycks as part of an SAL. The first band is all double running and satin stitch, stitches I don't normally have problems accomplishing.

Unless, of course, you go over three threads instead of two at the beginning of the band.  So I ripped.

Rather than tempt fate, I decided to do a bit more on the little Christmas ornament from Jackie du Plessis that I started last week.

And I miscounted on that, too.

So I ripped.

This is what my worktable looks like at the moment:

 I think I'll go fold towels. That does not require counting to two.


  1. It's all daylight savings fault

  2. That's funny because I've had to rip out some stitches on every piece I've touched in a week! Wishing you a much better week, and hope you make some progress!
