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.

Leafing Out

One of the trees now has foliage.

That was this evening's stitching. I would take a picture of today's class stitching--let's face it, having a completed project from yesterday's was nothing short of amazing, considering that I don't stitch well in class ever--but I doubt anyone wants to see one flower petal and one spiral trellis ball.

We spent most of today talking about the construction of the pieces of the Edinburgh Etui and, because I was in the right place at the right time, Betsy put the foundation piece for the container together from my materials. When the teacher just happens to be standing right in front of you, and she needs a piece of Mylar for demonstration, and you just happen to have it sitting in your package of materials readily at hand--well, location, location, location. At least one piece of my etui is assembled correctly!


  1. about being in the right place at the right time...haha!

  2. Great stitching. Sounds like a great class.
