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.

Look what they did!

For the past two years, the program committee for the Carolina Sampler Guild has been designing and teaching motifs for the Sailor's Huswif.

And tonight they showed us how all the pieces will go together:

Isn't this a wonderful project? 

Have I been stitching on this?  Uh . . . .not yet. Apparently I need to let it age a little more, the way I've been letting other things age before I pull them out and stitch my fingers to the bone.

And, since I had a guild meeting tonight, I haven't stitched yet today. I plan to rectify that situation immediately.


  1. Beautiful projects! Look forward to seeing a start.
    You are not the only one who lets patterns ferment for a while. lIke fine wine!

  2. Just like a good wine, your stash gets better with age. Good one. I'm going to use that line!

    The project is beautiful.

  3. Beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished project!

  4. Beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished project!

  5. Great program idea!! We might have to give this a try at Tidewater Sampler Guild!! Laura

  6. That is lovely. OMG I love that term "got to let it age a little more" I've got to remember that!

  7. This is going to be amazing!
