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.

Back on Track

There was an emergency in the extended family in the last few days, and we have been acting in a support function while things were crazy. We have returned to our usual state--note I did not mention normal--so I have a minute to post the bit of stitching I've been able to do the last couple of days.

The third panel for the sides of "Can't See the Forest for the Trees" is complete.

My original plan was to finish all the stitching for this project this week-end--and go to the farmers' market in the morning--and see "Age of Ultron"--and work on finish-finishing Fair Maiden--and pick up The Shepherdess again--and maybe corral a few dust bunnies and swab a few plumbing fixtures. However, I am coming down with a cold. It is May and I have caught a cold. Consequently, I fear I will be a sneezy, drippy, achy, grouchy lump of misery for at least a couple of days.

Dearly Beloved is suggesting that I mainline orange juice, and I believe I shall go and do just that.


  1. So pretty...and fast! You are a stitcher on a mission! I've been working on the same building for two weeks now. I have 1/3 of a wall. LOL I hope you feel better soon, spring colds are horrible.

  2. Thank you--both for the compliment and the get-well wishes. I'm just trying to figure out where I could have picked up a cold . . .
