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.

Little flowers, lots of little flowers

I've started on the first step to create the flowers on the needle roll.

As I've been stitching, I've been trying to make a decision about what I want to do when I get the foundation stitches for this section completed.

I could do the filling stitches on top of the foundation stitches, then stitch the leaves and sprigs, and then sew on spangles and beads. And then this piece of the needle roll would be finished.

Or, while I have the stitch sequence for the foundation stitches in my pointy little head, I could go ahead and do them on the other piece.

I should probably go ahead and do the foundation stitches on the other piece. I may as well take advantage of knowing what I'm doing before it slips away.
