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.

Done and Done!!!

By virtue (?) of ignoring all domestic duties except for necessary laundry and making a big pot of beef stew, and by closing the door to Dearly Beloved's office so I couldn't see inside, I finished Ann Wheatley about an hour ago.

I had hoped to finish her while I still had daylight so the real colors would be more apparent, but, like everything else, it took longer to stitch than I planned.

Now I have to decide what to do next.

In 2011, I started three samplers: Mary Atwood, Ann Wheatley, and Rebekah French. Mary and Ann are finished, just leaving Rebekah. So do I pull her out of limbo, or do I putter around with other stuff?

I think I'll sleep on it.


  1. Not only done, but well done. Good for you Ann!

  2. Absolutely beautiful! Do you need to do something quick or small before going to Rebekah?

  3. Another beautifully stitched it!! Hey do both - start a new project after all you just finished one and work on Rebekah. .. decisions. .. decisions but what fun too!! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Nice job, Ann - can't believe the verse .... it is what I have been very aware of this year !

  5. Ah decisions, decisions! I know whatever you choose, it will be beautiful!
