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.

Perfect week-end

I declared my independence from adulthood this week-end and decided I was going to indulge myself. Obviously this meant I stitched and read and looked at blogs and websites having to do with needlework.

Saturday I announced that I was going to work on Morning Has Broken until both of the over-one motifs next to the bee skep were finished.  And they are.

I can't tell you how nice it will be to turn the rods on the scroll frame. I have no idea why this section caused such angst--over one usually doesn't thrill me but it doesn't kill me either--maybe because I started it when I really had problems with anesthesia brain--but I am relieved it is done.

Today I decided to work on Journey for awhile, and totally impressed Dearly Beloved with the Fleur de Lis.

Journey is almost halfway completed, and I may spend some week-end hours with it to see that finale sooner rather than later.  

There are still a couple of hours before I need to go to bed. I could go ahead and pack my lunch for tomorrow and balance the checkbook and fold two loads of towels that are sitting on the kitchen table--but I think I'll avoid adulthood for another evening!


  1. Really marvelous progress for a recalcitrant teenager--may you have many more productive weekends like this one!!

  2. Those fleru de lys are really cool!

    Congrats on getting those over one motifs done! Sometimes you just have to declare war and attack!!!
