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.

A floating face

The shepherdess is taking shape:

We also have a blackbird singing in the tree and a flower blooming on the hill. I'm thinking this means spring is coming--at least in my embroidery!

I was planning to do some reading tonight, but I think I'd rather get my shepherdess a little more grounded. So I'm off to thread up my needle.


  1. Hmmm not sure which is more disturbing the floating head or the body without a head???

  2. I'm not too disturbed by the floating head, but it reminds me of a friend who cannot stitch leave off stitching a face until the eyes are stitched. :D

  3. YOU make my heart smile with your lovely stitchings, such unique patterns you have chosen,
