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. 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!
