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.

Oh Happy Day!

All the curlicues and little spaces around the center cartouche are filled in!!!!

I hereby vow that I absolutely will not wait until the end to do those areas when I work the background on the front piece.

However, I am absolutely thrilled to have this much of the background done. Quite frankly, I thought it was going to take every evening this week to get those teeny little bits filled in. Now that they're done, I can move on to the background for the front. Actually, I may be deadly dull and boring and continue to work on this and this alone until I can start playing with the fun stuff.

We'll see how that plays out.


  1. Woohoo - fantastic! Throwing confetti for your (partial) finish! (not to worry, it's the disappearing variety)
