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.

Strewing Posies

A couple more flowers have bloomed on Briar Rose:

This should be boring, since I don't do repetition well. But it's not. I'm not sure why. It may have something to do with the fact that I've figured out the most efficient way for me to stitch each flower. It may be because I have reached that sweet spot where I don't need to refer to the chart. It may be that I'm in need of a Zen stitching experience. Or it may be that I don't have the brain to handle anything other than repetition.

I need my brain--I'm getting ready to go back to Salty Yarns this week-end for a workshop with Betsy Morgan. Yes, I am taking another workshop with Betsy--deja vu all over again. And I need to think about packing, and need to decide if I'm going to take my traveling project that has yet to see a stitch, or if I should just go with the flow of more and more posies.

Going with the flow sounds good at the moment.

  1. I love workshops. I don't think it's the workshop itself, but the being away from home and staying in a hotel. It's so nice to stay somewhere that I didn't have to clean myself...sigh. Have a wonderful time!
