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.

Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree

Adam and Eve and their apple tree are complete!

It seems that Eve is getting ready to pick the apple, but I wish you to notice that it appears that Adam is also reaching for one.

I'd really hoped to have Ann Wheatley finished before I leave for Winterthur, but I don't see how that can happen. Now I have to decide if I want to haul her with me, which will require bringing better lighting for the hotel room. As you may remember, we don't know how to travel light, and I was hoping to leave the bigger light at home.

If I don't take A.W. with me, then I have to decide what I do want to take for hotel room stitching.

Hopefully this will be the biggest decision I have to make in the next couple of days.


  1. Ann, check on IKEA or Amazon. The Jansjo clip-on light is only 14.99 or so. It is a dream with a loooong cord. Order it tonight and you will have it for your trip.

  2. I love hotel room stitching, nothing else waiting to get done like it is when I am at home.

  3. Your A.W. A&E are beautiful! Interested to know what you packed to stitch at the hotel....

  4. This looks great, well done on the finish!
