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.

A Lovely Lyre

I have the first little bit of prework for my next Jackie du Plessis class worked.

Isn't this sweet?  I love it, and I was planning to work on the next piece in the list of things that need to be stitched before class.

But then Tricia Nguyen posted two free online classes that use threads from the Frostings Club*, and I've printed out the directions.

And now I'm tempted to go off in an entirely different direction.

I need to stop--I'm getting too many things underway at the same time, and that way lies disaster, when I don't get anything done and start getting frustrated about it.

So, I'm going to take a deep breath and go back to the original plan.  At least for tonight.

*For information on the Frostings Club, you may want to mosey over to and click on the Shop heading. Don't say I didn't warn you about the temptations to be found there.


  1. Looks like Hands to Work, Hearts to God!

  2. What is the name of this project, and where is it being taught please?
