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.

Olympic Stitching

I had a vision of my own Olympic challenge. I had decided I was going to do my very best to finish Mary Atwood by the end of the closing ceremony.

After all, I just finished another band:

I only have four more bands to stitch. That seems doable, doesn't it?

Then I realized that, while the Olympics are on, I spend more time holding my needle than pushing it in and out of the linen.

I think my new goal is to finish Mary Atwood after the Olympics.


  1. Yay, another band completed!

  2. I have faith in you--you'll finish before the end of the Olympics. You are definitely a turbo stitcher! Enjoy the games!
