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.

Canvas and more canvas

There's been a lot of canvas in my life this week.

This is In the Mood Red, through the second lesson. Third lesson was posted in the last day or so, so that may be what I work on tonight.

While I was waiting for Lesson 3 to post, I picked Journey up again:

Baby Girl was home last week and mentioned that she likes this design, so it moved up on the list. I will say, however, that I did not enjoy stitching the four sections that make up the upper right corner and lower left corner. All of them had somewhat fiddly counting and compensating, and I do not have the brain yet for fiddly stuff.

Canvas is easier, though, than my usual beloved linen and 17th century stuff. The canvas is held by the stretcher bars, so I don't have to worry so much about my tension. And the holes are big enough to see without magnification.

Obviously, I'm still in the recovery stage from the surgery, although I did work half days in the office for part of the week. There has been a glitch in the recovery process, since the pathology report indicated some further problems--so I go to see a specialist next week to find out what the next step is. I am more than ready to get back to normal--or whatever passes for normal for me!
