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.

Last night I had stitching plans that required six inch stretcher bars.

So I went rummaging in the Big Bag of Small Projects, where I keep my mini bars.

I came up with several small pieces that I had started, but for some reason, lost in the mists of time, I didn't finish.

This one needed about four leaves stitched. So I stitched them.

This one needed to have the tops of the thistles added. So I added them.

This one needed way more than the other two, but I'm going to work on it tonight.

And I never did find the stretcher bars. I forgot to look for them.


  1. What pretty little stitcheries!

    I think of that as the "oh look, a squirrel!" phenomenon when it happens to me. Which it does *quite often* when I go stash diving.

  2. Ann your searches are so much like mine. I find such treasures - love it. Thank you for sharing.
