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.

More Loopy Sheep

Another Christmas ornament stitched this year!

I love those sheep--and I managed to get big, loopy French knots on these sheep as well. And I love the redbirds and the little shepherd and the Christmas tree in the wagon.

Tomorrow I hope to do the finishing on the ornaments I've stitched in the last few weeks. At least they'll get about a week on this year's tree before they go into storage for another year.

And I am officially on vacation until Friday, January 2. I have a stack of Christmas movies and CDs for entertainment for the next two days, then another stack of movies and books--and about eighteen needlework projects--for the following week. I can already feel every single cell in my body start to relax.


  1. Beautiful ornament, Ann!
    Merry Christmas!

  2. oooo, pretty! Enjoy your well-earned break and your lovely ornies!
