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.

Seriously Girly-Girl

Deep down inside, I suffer from a terminal case of prissy. Put ribbons and bows on something pastel, and I melt.

 This is what made me melt today.

I put together the accessory bits for the Posies set--scissors fob, scissors sheath, and teeny needle book. I even managed to get the ribbon on the scrimshaw thread winder. All have been added to their Shaker carrier.

I could go ahead and start the assembly of the main piece of the set. I could. But having made it through this much finishing in one day without a total breakdown, I'm going to stitch instead. I have four pieces calling my name. Loudly. They're even louder than the dust bunnies.


  1. Lovely, lovely finishes. And I agree, you deserve to stitch!!! Laura

  2. Why on earth would anyone want to dust when they could stitch???

  3. We can live with dust bunnies but not stitching :)
    Beautiful work.
