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.

One down, two to go

The first "chamber" on this band is complete!

I had to use a sharp needle to work the satin over the double running stitch outlines, but I am happy to say that I have left no DNA behind.

I realize that I have now jinxed myself and will stab myself with my needle repeatedly and painfully throughout the rest of the band.


  1. Oh my ... absolutely gorgeous! Love the bit of red as it adds so much.

  2. THIS is beautiful! What is the name of this sampler, please?

    1. This is Frances Burwell, reproduced by The Examplarery from a sample in the Colonial Williamsburg collection.
