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.

And there was much rejoicing

I finally had time to get some finishing done yesterday:

DeWitt Academy for Young Ladies
Merry Cox

The set is not completely complete. I still have to put the handles on the thread tray and put the needle book together--that may happen later today.

And Sarah Williams has a finished flower pot and a bird:

And to make for a very happy Saturday, the prework for the two Sherri Jones (Patrick's Woods) classes I'm taking at Salty Yarns arrived:

I also need to finish the prework for the Jackie du Plessis class I'm taking in March.

It appears that I need to plug in the electric needle.

By the way, I seem to have lost a bunch of followers suddenly. From what I understand, Google, who owns blogger, has decided, in its infinite wisdom, that one cannot follow a blog unless one has a gmail account. I don't know of anyone who appreciates this "efficiency" move.


  1. I wondered why I lost six followers on Blog this weekend. The numbers change by 1-2 constantly but six? Google is really the Evil Empire, isn't it?

  2. Thanks for explaining this Anne. I lost 10 followers to the wilderness! And truthfully, I don't think I have a gmail account. Surely, they won't wipe me out entirely??

  3. Now that is worth celebrating. Your Merry Cox piece looks fabulous!
