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.

The kit for Catherine the Great from Gay Ann Rogers arrived on my doorstep this afternoon.

I have been inventorying the supplies since I got home from work:

The thread colors are subtle, but there are beads and lots of glitz, as befitting the Empress of all the Russias.

Now I need to find stretcher bars and decide how best I want to organize the threads to make it easiest for me to stitch.

There are times when I enjoy organizing as much as I enjoy stitching, and I think tonight is one of those nights.

  1. I too love, love, love getting new kits to stitch and "playing" with the threads. Thoroughly understand what you're saying. LOL.
