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.

Plague Project 2

The plague has lingered into a second week, which means I must have picked up and put down a dozen projects. The only one that seemed to move easily is this:

Pot of Gold Sampler Accent for March
Periwinkle Promises

When this series of projects first floated to the top of the stash, I planned to work on one a month through 2017, just so I'd have at least one finish each month of the year. Now it appears that I have completed the samplers for the whole first quarter. I think I'll take a break from them for awhile.


I think  know the meds have been doing a number on me. When one of them makes you jittery and headache-y, and one makes you loopy and foggy, and the third just gives you a generally queasy feeling, it's hard to focus on anything that requires sustained concentration.

I feel like Grace Slick should be singing "White Rabbit" in the background. 

Hopefully I'm finally over the worst. I've finished taking one of the pills, and one I don't need as often, and I only have two more days of the third, and things will get back to semi-normal, and I can do more for longer. 

Or I can continue to sit in my corner and stare into space.


  1. Sorry the "plague" is lingering--hope you're back to par soon!

  2. So sorry to hear you're *still* feeling lousy (guess the healing vibes haven't arrives as intended). Amazed you can still stitch at all - the pot of gold is adorable and came out so well!

  3. Sorry to hear you still aren't at your best, hope you feel better soon. Your stitching is beautiful.
