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.

Engineering, Phase One

I've spent part of the day finish-finishing the Fair Maiden Etui. I have these bits and pieces done--I have one more major component that has to be put together and then I can start part of the assembly process.

My new philosophy is that when I start feeling an uncontrollable need for chocolate, it's time to stop and do something else for awhile. 

I think I'm going to fold laundry and put it away. When I not only crave chocolate but am also willing to do housework instead of needlework, it's definitely time to change gears.


  1. It looks like you have really made progress on this--you definitely deserved chocolate!!

  2. Very pretty work! I try to keep moving when the chocolate beast comes out to play.
