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.

A Flurry of Flowers

Half the flower sprays are stitched.

This is not all that happened this week-end. Baby Girl and I enjoyed an outing with the Piedmont Heritage Sampler Guild. We visited the Mordecai museum in Raleigh, where we viewed samplers that were stitched at the Mordecai school, operated by the father of the gentleman whose name is attached to the museum. Chris gave a wonderful report on the outing at PHSG's blog, so I will not recap.

I will mention that Baby Girl and I did not do lunch or stash enhancement. After missing a turn--twice--we decided to head back to her home for an afternoon of stitching. She was under-caffeinated and my wonky knees have been giving me problems, so we decided to get caffeine for her and an ice pack for me. I think for everyone's overall enjoyment, this was probably a very good idea.


  1. Such wonderful progress on MHB! And what better than to share that time with your daughter!? Makes the time so much more sweetly spent. Laura

  2. This piece is exquisite. I look forward to future progress photos.

  3. Those tiny flowers you added are magic!

  4. Glad you had fun! Knowing when to call a day, a day is very important. Sounds like a great day to me and your sampler is looking wonderful!
