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.

What to do, what to do

I'm having a little bit of a dilemma.

I have four whole days with few or no responsibilities. We've had our Thanksgiving Feast, so I'm not up to my elbows in turkey and dressing. I have four lovely days for non-stop stitching.

Generally, when I have an extended period of time off, I have planned what to stitch and what to marathon on TV while I'm stitching. This time, not so much.

I could easily stay with Early Spring Lambs. I could potentially finish the whole project if I stuck to it. And I'm loving the border, which has a tapestry-like effect.

(Hopefully I can get a better picture tomorrow when I have daylight.)

But I could also pull out a sampler or I could do some finish-finishing or I could start decorating for Christmas. Or I could dive into the stash room and start reorganizing so I can find things without a major search-and-rescue mission.

Or maybe I'll just jump around from one project to another.

At any rate, it will be just as much a surprise to me as it is to you.


  1. So many choices!

    I think one of my favorite weekend days early this year was when Husband said we didn't have to work on house projects and I could give the entire day over to stitchery. I went through the stash (uh ... the high priority part), then kitted up half a dozen projects of all sizes. Heavenly!

  2. I vote for a mix of finishing with some free-style stitching. Enjoy your four days!

  3. If you need a binge watching recommendation and have Netflix, I recommend "The Crown". And I love organizing, so throw in a little of that.
