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.

Definitely Crazy

I was going to say that maybe I am crazy.

No, I'm definitely crazy--but I'm very, very happy.

Here is the carcass for another Cabinet of Curiosities.

I know, I already have one and I haven't stitched a stitch for it yet--but Tricia Nguyen offered a class to work a small stumpwork casket. I absolutely was not going to take the class--then I saw the design and it sang to me. And it's different from the design I want to stitch for my big casket. And I love 17th century embroidery.

I'm definitely crazy.

And I'm going to live to be 485.


  1. Oops--hit the wrong button....If only we could live long enough to accomplish everything we want!!! :) Somebody needs to work on that!!!

  2. Staci's absolutely right! Reached SABLE long ago but certainly there should be a SABLE eradication program so we can stitch all the glorious stash we've acquired? Whenever you work on your caskets, I will love getting the chance to watch!
