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.

Making myself stitch

Well, there is one good thing about blogging every day in November--it also means that I need to stitch every day.

Today wasn't a big stitching day.

The basic vine now reaches across the sampler. It still needs the colored leaves along the top filled in. I still have the fidgets, though, and I'm not sure that will happen tonight.

BTW, we went to see Dr Strange this afternoon. If you're into Marvel movies, this is the most visually amazing of them all. I want to go back and see it again. And there's a new Guardians of the Galaxy movie coming in late spring. And a new Pirates of the Caribbean out next year.

I guess my Geek Flag is still flying, despite my advancing years . . .


  1. Blogging every day, stitching every day - looks like real progress to me. :)

    The embroidery part below - you drew (traced?) the design on the linen with ... pencil? I'm just thinking ahead - whenever I finish Jane Turner, my next large project will be one of the Balch School Betsys from Scarlet Letter where there are a number of embroidered rather than counted elements.

  2. Wave that flag proudly, Ann! :D
