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.

Four Years

I realized the other day that July 11 is the fourth anniversary of this blog.

I started it to basically keep track of projects I was working on and to make notes of things I learned while stitching.

I have learned the following:

  • I bite off more than I can chew--or stitch--in a reasonable life span.
  • Everything takes longer to stitch than I think it should.
  • I don't have nearly enough time to stitch, and still maintain ties with family and friends, work, and do enough housekeeping to keep the health department at bay.
  • Despite knowing all this, I'm going to continue to add things I want to do to the things I already have to do and just assume I'm going to live to be 385.
  • Stitching keeps me sane.  Relatively.

We are visiting The Flash and his parental units this week-end so a needle may not make it into my hands until we're home again. But it was packed and brought with me, just like a security blanket. Which it is.


  1. Happy 4th blogversary!!! That sounds so much like me!

  2. Another reason for your blog is that you share beautiful stitching and a marvelous sense of humor with your readers. Thanks!
