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.

First finish of 2016!

Needle in a Haystack, the first day of a Stitcher's Christmas, is stitched!

Now I'm trying to figure out (again) what to alternate with Eve's background. I could do the next ornament in the series, but I'm inclined to schedule them so I'm working on one a month. Otherwise, I think I might be inclined to blaze right through. And I know there will be months when a fairly fast finish will keep me going.

I'm thinking about one of the largish samplers I have started. I can think of at least three that are halfway done and it would be nice to have them all the way done.  Or maybe there are at least four. Or five.

I think I need to go wander through the stash again.


  1. Woohoo! Lovely! I am looking forward to seeing what comes out of the stash :)

  2. Don't you just love that first finish each year? Congrats, it's a lovely one.
