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.

Watching Paint Dry

I'm filling in petals. Many, many petals.

At least I'm halfway around. If I keep to the current pace, it takes about half an hour to fill in each flower, so I have about six hours of work left to do. Then the centers are stitched, and then I can lay this aside until the finishing directions are posted.

There were plans to do some finish-finishing this week-end, but Domestic Diva Duties have interfered. I really wish some brilliant person would invent an automatic dust rag. I'd be first in line to buy one.


  1. There used to be a counted cross stitch chart of "Dust is a protective coating for furniture"--I'm of that school!!

    1. I stitched that! Wonder where it is . . .

  2. Your flowers are looking great. I think your automatic dust rag should come with an automatic maid.
