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.

Why I Stalk the Mail Carrier

In the last few days, my dear, sweet, wonderful mail carrier has delivered:

Two lovely kits from Barbara Jackson, one brand new and the other almost sold out.

Amy Mitten's Summer Solstice kit. I'm not a big fan of bugs, but I do like these.

The first kit for the Stumpwork part of the Casket of Curiosities class. You will notice I am not showing the contents of the box. I'm not showing the present that came with it. There are people in the class who haven't received theirs yet, and I don't want to spoil the surprise.

With all this fun stuff arriving on my doorstep, I need to stitch! And I am, starting right this very minute.


  1. I just emailed Tristan Brooks the minute I saw your picture! I had no idea they were available. Thanks for the tip!

    1. Check out her website, It's just been redesigned and updated. There are a couple of other things that are going to get me into trouble but I'm trying to be strong.
