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.

Spangles and Beads

I decided to avoid eye strain today and work on Fair Maiden.

Thus far, things have been going well. I have caught the corner of my bead tray with the sleeve of my sweater and spilled the contents only once, and have stabbed myself with the beading needle only twice. All in all, a good day!

And in a month I'll be in Williamsburg again, taking another class from Jackie du Plessis. I'm hoping to have a chunk of this project done before then. Actually, it would be absolutely amazing if I managed to finish one project from a workshop within a year of originally taking the class. That happens rarely. It does happen, but not often enough.

So, back to spangling.

  1. Hmmm, I think I have yet to finish a retreat project! And it's not because I don't love them . . . life, I guess. :D
