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.

The birds and the bees

I don't have much to show for the last several days, but I did get several teeny tiny blackbirds stitched (over ONE!)  (with BLACK SILK!) on Morning Has Broken.

There are also a couple of bees buzzing about.

And I've started stitching the first of many, many sprays of flowers.  I think I'm going to enjoy this motif. That's a good thing. Did I mention that this spray of flowers is repeated around the sampler?  Many, many times? Many times.

So I should get to it.


  1. Very lovely!! Makes me want to get mine out. Laura

  2. I took a closer look at your pic so I could really see and enjoy all the different types of stitches in the design! Really lovely!!

  3. Great progress though.
    This is going to be a beautiful piece.

    1. Ann and Sarah! It was so good to see you both today. I lost you guys and I am so sorry. I thought that it was clear where we were going for lunch but I should have clarified the directions and made sure of them and I am lax because I didn't have your phone number to contact you.
      Please forgive me.

  5. Beautiful work so far, Ann! I love this sampler and will really enjoy watching your progress!
