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.

Sweet Little Things

Yesterday was a finishing day, and I can add the Perfume Bottle Etui and the Compact Pin Keep to the Fair Maiden set.

the outsides

the insides

I am pretty happy with them, even if they did take all day. I was determined to take this process slowly and carefully. Slow and careful takes a lot of time.

So does the reorganization, which has come to a standstill at the moment. Once I hauled everything upstairs and threw it on the bed in the guest room/shrine to Baby Girl's girlhood, I went into the out-of-sight-out-of-mind syndrome.

Today I am catching up on Domestic Diva Duties and tending to Dearly Beloved, who has come down with a major cold. He is just a wee bit cranky.

I'm thinking of putting him in isolation until he gets over both the cold and the crankiness.


  1. I had a feeling putting things in the spare bedroom wasn't a good idea. The couch was much better for making sure things got done. ... Never mind.

    Your finishes are lovely!

    1. Yes, but I was covering Sheldon's--no, wait--Dearly Beloved's spot!
