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.

More pretty little things

While the Finishing Fairy seems to be smiling on me, I thought I would start putting together all the pretty pieces for the Afternoon Leisure Basket, designed by Sherri Jones. I took the class last year at Salty Yarns, prepped most of the pieces, and then (what a surprise) was distracted by something else.

I put the basket pieces together in class. In the last few days, I put together the two needle books.

I still have to do the mattress pin cushion, the pin keep, the strawberry, and the scissors sheath. I believe that may keep me out of trouble this week.


  1. So very pretty! Love those two needlebooks (the cats are adorable). Didn't realize there were so many pieces in this set...

    You still battling (arguing?) with The Boot?

  2. Wonderful, love the wooden basket and stitching is beautiful. Look forward to seeing complete set so happy Stitching.
